    And UVF supergrass Gary Haggarty sentenced the other day. Is this a trend?

    A bit of whataboutry going on. The ould scales of justice is looking for a balance. Whatever/if ever Scappaticci done, he'll only serve two years anyway. Agent or not. Now that the teeth are in, the juicy stuff could start to flow and there'll be plenty of doors getting knocked if he spills. Or is all this a charade?

    His police custody time limit has been extended today for another 36 hours.

    I can't see him doing a day. The arrest itself has astonished me. If he gets banged up it will reduce the odds of the Brits picking up informers anywhere. And they can't be that confident that the "conflict" is buried forever.

    Spills? Everything he knows was passed on years ago.
    Do not rejoice in his defeat, you men. For though the world has stood up and stopped the bastard, the (female dog) that bore him is in heat again. Bertolt Brecht

    Yes, to MI6. It's down to what information was shared with other intelligence agancies and what they knew/done about it. There's a history of poor information exchange and ''eff ups!''

    Mysterious overnight fire at a building within the MI5 compound at palace barracks just the other night. Timely. https://www.belfastlive.co.uk/news/f...-fire-14226936

    More missing files?
