So, Ian Paisley's sprog blames Sinn Fein/IRA. The BBC Today programme pushes out the standard propaganda which finds PIRA guilty of the Northern Bank Robbery, the McCartney killing, the Donaldson assasination and anything else you want to throw in for good measure. It doesn't matter a toss that the IRA deny it, that Sinn Fein disown it, nor that there's not a jot of evidence other than the totally unfounded assertion of another former IRA informer based in London (and who strangely hasn't been bumped off) that PIRA definitely killed the man. Within hours of the killing the BBC's intrepid presenters have wrapped the case up, dispensed with the evidence, charged the accused and thrown away the key. Interestingly, as the dust starts to settle, the Donaldson family state they have a different view of events. There's a good "grassy knoll" theory in here somewhere.
