I note that Gerry Adams, the long term IRA leader, killer, murder planner and torture organiser who plainly gloated that ‘We haven’t gone away; y’know’ is a tad upset about the BBC.
The Sinn Féin president Gerry Adams has said he is considering legal action against the BBC for broadcasting claims that he sanctioned the killing of a former party colleague who turned out to be a British spy.
The allegations over the death of Denis Donaldson were made by an anonymous man, named only as Martin, who claimed he was also a paid state agent in the IRA, to BBC Northern Ireland’s Spotlight programme.
Donaldson, 55, a Sinn Féin official and close colleague of Adams, was shot dead at an isolated cottage near Glenties in Co Donegal in April 2006 following his exposure as a long-term British agent inside both the IRA and Sinn Féin.
“That the BBC would broadcast unsubstantiated allegations from an anonymous person, a self-confessed agent, about me, I think it very, very low journalism indeed,” Adams said.
I reckon that the BBC would be insisting, in fact begging, for a law suit, in order to actually get this scumbag onto a witness stand, where he would not have access to his tape-recording; you know the one, that’s where his voice keeps repeating. ‘NO Comment’.
