"They haven't gone away"

With the courts still busy releasing suspected Islamist terrorists (and as a member of the public AND as a police officer, I say thanks very much for that - I'll sleep safer in my bed with these guys who'd like to kill me, my freedom, my lifestyle, my loved ones and my society out and about to continue their plotting) it's important to remember those that went before, the poor neglected terrorists in Northern Ireland / Occupied 6 Counties / Ulster / Thuaisceart Éireann.

Spare a thought for these guys and gals. No longer are they the terroristes du jour seeking and getting attention with their pesky pranks. The Ulster and Irish terrorists used to talk about "legitimate targets" and "collateral damage" but it seems they're now so miffed with the Islamists taking all the media attention that they've started targetting children's toy shops with their incendiary devices.

Yup, I said toy shops.

Now I know fine well that most of these 'incendiaries' are more to do with protection racketeering than politics, religion or belief. However, it still goes on, it's still terrorism, and modern spin post-peace process means that we just don't hear about it here on mainland UK any more.


But be under no illusions, they still haven't gone away.

She did not hear the study door close, but a minute or so later there was a dreadful cry in the room below. It was a wild, hoarse scream, so strange and unnatural that it might have come either from a man or a woman. At the same instant there was a heavy thud, which shook the old house, and then all was silence. The maid stood petrified for a moment, and then, recovering her courage, she ran downstairs. The study door was shut and she opened it. Inside, young Mr. Willoughby Smith was stretched upon the floor. At first she could see no injury, but as she tried to raise him she saw that blood was pouring from the underside of his neck. It was pierced by a very small but very deep wound, which had divided the carotid artery. The instrument with which the injury had been inflicted lay upon the carpet beside him. It was one of those small sealing-wax knives to be found on old-fashioned writing-tables, with an ivory handle and a stiff blade. It was part of the fittings of the professor's own desk.

Ah! there I am not in a position to help you. But I suppose you want us to come out to-morrow?"

"If it is not asking too much, Mr. Holmes. There's a train from Charing Cross to Chatham at six in the morning, and we should be at Yoxley Old Place between eight and nine."

"Then we shall take it. Your case has certainly some features of great interest, and I shall be delighted to look into it. Well, it's nearly one, and we had best get a few hours' sleep. I daresay you can manage all right on the sofa in front of the fire. I'll light my spirit lamp, and give you a cup of coffee before we start."
