The dissident republican terrorist group labelled bankers as “criminals” and as the “next door neighbours of the politicians”.
In an interview with The Guardian the Real IRA said: “We have a track record of attacking high-profile economic targets and financial institutions such as the City of London. The role of bankers and the institutions they serve in financing Britain’s colonial and capitalist system has not gone unnoticed.”
In a series of written answers the group tried to tap into public hostility towards financiers since the economic downturn.
