The Mixed Wings, the H-Blocks and Maghaberry Prison

In September of 1985 I was transferred from a Category ‘B’ prison – Blundeston in Suffolk – to The Maze Prison’s H-Blocks. I had been a Category ‘A’ High Risk prisoner for nearly 10 years in England around various top security prisons, and had only been reduced to Category ‘B’ 6 months before my transfer. My actual transfer was banal – a taxi to Birmingham … Continue reading The Mixed Wings, the H-Blocks and Maghaberry Prison

Brian Rowan and Allison Morris’ Pig in a Poke Sale

When challenged about the BBC Spotlight revelations on Gerry Adams’ leadership role in the IRA and consequent responsibility for directing the IRA’s terrorist campaign of unnecessary mass murder, bombings and Human Rights’ atrocities, the BBC Talkback Tag Team of radio re-treads Brian Rowan and Allison Morris offer pitiful responses to Adams’ constant lies and possible prosecution. Rowan hurriedly ignores Adams’ responsibility for mass murder and … Continue reading Brian Rowan and Allison Morris’ Pig in a Poke Sale

The IRA, the Catholic Church & Big Lies

Northern nationalism has entered a moral ice-age largely ushered in by Gerry Adams’ strategy. Lies – Very Big Lies – are the order of the day and all who wish to be northern nationalists must lie and be complicit in lies, even the Catholic church. The Biggest Lie of All is Gerry’s lie that he was never a member of the IRA – FFS Gerry, … Continue reading The IRA, the Catholic Church & Big Lies

The IRA’s Lie of “The Necessary Armed Struggle”

How have we ended up in a situation following a peace process and an agreement in which half of the political establishment in Northern Ireland expresses the belief that the murders of approximately 1,700 men, women and children by the Provisional IRA were wholly legitimate, necessary and to be celebrated for ever into the future? How is it possible in a normal democracy to regard … Continue reading The IRA’s Lie of “The Necessary Armed Struggle”

Martina Anderson, Diputada del Parlamento Europeo, el IRA y sus víctimas desaparecidas

Martina Anderson se unió al IRA en 1979 junto a otras adolescentes. Su primer destino, dentro de la banda, fue una pequeña unidad de hombres mayores, algunos de los cuáles, amigos míos, ya habían cumplido penas de prisión. En ese momento, todos los miembros de este grupo estaban informando a un conocido Comandante del IRA en Derry, apodado “Ducksie”. Peter, el hermano mayor de Martina, … Continue reading Martina Anderson, Diputada del Parlamento Europeo, el IRA y sus víctimas desaparecidas

John Finucane and the IRA’s Human Rights’ Violations

In May, 2017, Sinn Féin announced that it was nominating John Finucane as its candidate in the Belfast North constituency Westminster election taking on Nigel Dodds of the DUP. John’s candidacy was billed as the first “generational change in Sinn Féin” – apparently meaning – in layperson’s terms – out with the old jailbird murderers, bombers, terrorists and recipients of OTR letters, etc., who’ve infested … Continue reading John Finucane and the IRA’s Human Rights’ Violations

EL LEGADO DE MENTIRAS DEL IRA

El mantra de Gerry Adams en los últimos tiempos ha sido: “el IRA ha abandonado la escena”. No es así, Gerry. Prácticamente todos los miembros y líderes importantes  del IRA han sido absorbidos por el Sinn Féin y allí permanecen, bajo el nuevo disfraz de la política democrática sin el menor remordimiento, arrepentimiento, verdad o integridad. Mira a tu alrededor, Gerry, mira a todos los … Continue reading EL LEGADO DE MENTIRAS DEL IRA

Martina Anderson, the IRA and her Disappeared Victims

Martina Anderson joined the IRA in 1979 with a number of other teenage girls, initially hanging around in a small unit of older men some of whom – friends of mine – had already served prison sentences. At that time, they were all reporting to a well-known IRA Commander in Derry, nicknamed “Ducksie”. Her older brother, Peter, had been a prominent republican a few years … Continue reading Martina Anderson, the IRA and her Disappeared Victims

Paradojas de “la lucha armada” del IRA

El movimiento disidente del “IRA Provisional” surge desde la mayoría marxista existente dentro del IRA en 1969. Este movimiento, que había reevaluado Irlanda del Norte después de la fallida “Campaña Fronteriza” acometida por el IRA entre 1956-62, decidió que la guerra de clases y la agitación no sectaria podrían funcionar mejor que las actividades armadas que habían fracasado recientemente. La posición del IRA Oficial cambió … Continue reading Paradojas de “la lucha armada” del IRA

Brian Rowan – “No Parade of Shame for Paramilitaries”

The BBC’s former great, Brian Rowan, has developed into a sorry peddler of two or three threadbare tenets these days, repeating them ad nauseam “like a stuck record” (if anyone is old enough to remember vinyl records): “You can’t have a peace process that releases prisoners and a past process that sends people to jail.” “Paramilitaries must not suffer “a parade of shame” over legacy … Continue reading Brian Rowan – “No Parade of Shame for Paramilitaries”
