Birmingham Pub Bombings

March 22, 2019

The fact that Brexit has taken over the news headlines has tucked the long awaited inquest into the Birmingham Pub Bombings  seemingly under the radar. However, at today's hearing the most dramatic of revelations was made ; "Witness O", a convicted IRA bomber, revealed the names of the four men responsible for the pub Bombings 44 years ago, stating he had been given permission for the reveal by the current  head of the IRA in Dublin ! So, despite denials by the police, Sinn Fein & various security agencies, it would seem the IRA are  still in existence. Furthermore, although 3 of the murdering bombers are now dead, the 4th, still alive, cannot be prosecuted due to Tony  Bliars letter of immunity as part of the Good Friday Agreement - I bet Soldier F, who IS about to be charged over Bloody Sunday, will be delighted to hear that !!

The farce over Brexit has overshadowed so much other parliamentary business and left many important issues either in limbo or lacking the public attention they deserve. The IRA’s ‘permission’ for Witness O to divulge the names of the Birmingham bombers is clearly a ruse. I believe it is an attempt to say “look how open we now are giving up the names of those who committed murder’. Forgetting conveniently 3 of them are dead and the 4th has a pardon and is de facto safe from prosecution. The IRA are using it as an excuse to try to get more soldiers charged. They are losing seats to Fiana Fael or whatever they are called and this is a ploy to gain political brownie points, nothing more. Soldier F must be wondering what planet he is on where terrorist murderers are safe from prosecution when those sent to defeat them are charged 50 years later! It isnt just a travesty it’s a disgusting and disgraceful deriliction of duty and duty of care.

On our local (Midlands news) tonight it was stated the police are renewing efforts to find the bombers "in the light of new evidence produced at the inquest ", so fingers crossed eh. John (JKW)
