The PSNI & The Ivor Bell Case: Some Thoughts On Motives And Consequences

The Broken Elbow

As I post this article reports are coming in from Belfast that the 56-year-old man arrested by the PSNI this morning in connection, according to evident police leaks, with the disappearance of Jean McConville has been released. Hardly surprising since he was only 14 in December 1972 when the unfortunate mother & widow was abducted by the IRA.

That makes the PSNI’s cull so far a 77-year-old man, who was not with the Sinn Fein programme since the mid-1980’s and someone who was 14 when the crime took place. Meanwhile as far as I know the PSNI has yet to respond to the offer to present himself for questioning made by Gerry Adams, who has been named as the man who actually ordered her disappearance.

Picket for the Craigavon 2 at Kitcheners farmers market a success


Today a small but dedicated group of people went to the KItchener farmers market to have an info picket to raise awareness of the illegal and criminal incarceration of the Craigavon 2 by the British state due to the fact that they are Irish Republicans. The leaflets went very quick as vendors who were supportive assisted by handing them out to there customers.

The reception was generally positive but more so on the inside where more people engaged and asked questions. Several people held placards and there was also a banner.

After this the placards were taped up in highly visible areas in Kitchener and union station in Toronto, due to the fact that one of the supporters took the bus there and the banner was hung outside a station on the university line.

Although the event was positive people wanted a way to plug in and their is talk…
