Gerry Adams' air of injured innocence and indignation yesterday over the latest Wiki leak was a masterclass in brazen audacity.

His denials of knowing anything about the Provisional IRA's robbery of the Northern Bank in Belfast in December 2004 were risible.

He has also denied ever being a member of the IRA although he was photographed at a paramilitary occasion wearing a beret, an unlikely fashion statement even for a teenager in the 1970s.
