It's amazing what a short bout of amnesia can do. It permeates your brain, fogging over everything, allowing you to criticise others while forgetting the past. Gerry Adams has it frequently. Maybe it's the naked trampolining. So when Padraig Mac Lochlainn made the following comments in the Dail about cigarette and fuel smuggling, you can forgive me for thinking that he was suffering from said condition.

"They are anti-peace process and clearly criminal. I wish to put it on the record and send out a clear signal from everyone in this House that those involved in these activities are a threat to all of us." He's clearly right of course - on this we agree; but everyone else around him missed a trick in not asking him whether the IRA were a threat to all of us when they involved themselves in criminal activities like dodgy diesel in South Armagh too.
