An anniversary that won't feature on the BBC news today

Today is the 27th anniversary of the Provisional IRA firing mortars at Downing Street in an attempt to kill the Prime Minister and members of the British War cabinet sitting at the time. This attempt seems to have all but disappeared from the collective British memory.

Maybe Theresa May could have asked Jeremy Corbyn for his thoughts on the actions of the Provos on that day. I wonder if he could have managed to condemn their actions without also condemning the actions of the British state?
