... and in the end it was our useless police force who actually provided the intel to the UK team to break down his door.

They had no idea about him, who he was or what he had done.

One article I read in the past few minutes describes the police as finding a "treasure trove" of information at the house in Derbyshire.


Hopefully its true, and destroys the lives of these criminals and their families and associates.

Sometimes statements like that are released to give associates some squeaky bum time in the hope of garnering some voluntary information.

The ambition of these thugs, to take down QIH, was so that it could be taken over by someone else. It wasn't going to be the thugs who were eyeing up control of the company. It was someone else.

Incidentally, this chief ringleader, who died, is a Derrylin man. Small world, eh?

Quinn has cost the citizens of this state over €3.5 billion between covering his investment losses and the insurance levy. In the past I felt sympathetic towards the Quinns.
Not any more.

Yes they do. It's modelled on CAB. French and Dutch have similar.

How anyone could have ever had an ounce of sympathy is beyond me.

Just another example of how the paramilitaries continue to be a malign influence on wider society.
