Real IRA Plan to Target Financial Institutions in England
The Real IRA has said that it will recommence its attacks on British banks and its workers. According to them, the bankers are 'criminals'. It is planning to target the financial institutions in England.
Security specialists are of the opinion that the dissenter Irish Republican terrorist group is equipped with explosives. It also has some experience in this field as is evident from the Canary Wharf bomb in London, in the year 1996. It is the foremost time that the group has utilized anti-capitalist grievances and shifted its attention to the financial institutions.
They deem that the IRA group’s new aim is the banking system because they want to hit on the bitterness in the Irish community, over the economic downturn.
Answering the questions from The Guardian, a Spokesman for the Real IRA said that they have a history in aiming at the high-status economic targets and monetary institutions.
One should not forget the reality that the bankers are the next-door neighbours of the politicians, the Spokesman said.
He added, "The bankers grease the politicians' palms, the politicians bail out the bankers with public funds, the bankers pay themselves fat bonuses and loan the money back to the public with interest”.
