MI5 And the "Irish Problem"

A few days ago I posted on comments by the British and Irish governments that the IRA were not involved in organised crime- the implication being that everything was fine and there's no problem in letting them back into government.

Seems like someone forgot to send that memo to MI5-

The Provisional IRA has not mounted a terrorist campaign since 1997. Its associated political party, Sinn Fein, is engaged in the Northern Ireland political process.

Paramilitary and criminal activity by all paramilitary organisations continues in Northern Ireland.

And they continue to list Northern Irish terrorism as one of the main threats that they face.
