There was an old griffito on Derry walls back in the 80s:


“I knew Raymond Gilmore. Thank fuck he didn’t know me.”


Gilmore being a supergrass who was responsible for locking up most of leading members of Derry Brigade. Most of them.


I would imagine there are quite a lot of people saying the same thing about Freddie.


It is hard to know the truth about all these things but if even part of what Panorama and others have alleged about him is true, then it changes the entire picture of what happened during the northern conflict.


I knew informers. Denis stayed in my house. I liked the chap.  I knew others who most likely got me caught. I bear them no malice. God only knows what made them betray their friends.


Scappaticci is in different league.  It is one thing to break under interrogation and give up names. To coldly murder other people to ensure you have enough money for the bookies and the pub. Well…


Nor does it say much for those who protected him.


Noticeable absence of kitten loving equality warriors tonight.


May God have mercy on us all that we were part of this.
