The British go soft on terrorism
It has been reported that the British and Irish governments have asked the Americans to lift the Sinn Fein fundraising ban. It doesn't matter that Sinn Fein's military wing (the IRA, remember them?) are still involved in criminal activity and are an electoral threat to the current Irish government.
How ironic that the two countries who have suffered the most from republican terrorism are now asking the Americans to go soft on republicans!
