Bomb bid takes us all backward

IT appears we've only to have another attempted bombing of Belfast city centre by 'dissident republicans' before it is ringed with metal and civilian searchers again.

If memory serves, it was the same 'dissident republicans' that were facilitated in a provocative march through Belfast city centre.

This attempted bombing came literally hours after First Minister Peter Robinson again urged his party faithful, to "keep moving Northern Ireland forward". Moving forward to where? 1972?
