The sick state of British ‘justice’

Jewish demonstrators at the July 4th 2015 event which eventually led to criminal charges – not against this mob – but against British Army veteran Jez Turner

In July 2015 a howling mob of ultra-leftwing Jews confronted a British Army veteran on Whitehall. So that no one could mistake their political outlook – and the tradition of brutal terror which they proudly claim to follow – this mob displayed the banners above: one reading “F**k Racism – Daloy Politzei” and another carrying the number “43” alongside the slogan “Jewish Anti-Fascist Action”.

Gentile readers might not know the full meaning of these banners, but the demonstrators knew perfectly well.  The slogan “Daloy Politzei”, waved with impunity in the faces of Metropolitan Police officers that day, means “F**k the Police”.

In fact it is a far more offensive slogan even than these words alone might imply.  The slogan “Daloy Politzei” is a combination of Yiddish and Russian.  It is a slogan that was deployed by murderous Jewish revolutionaries in early 20th century Russia, who proved that they were not employing idle threats when they led the Bolshevik overthrow of Tsar Nicholas II in 1917.

The song goes on to say: “let’s bury little Nikolai along with his mother”.  In fact a Jewish-controlled gang did go on to bury Tsar Nicholas, his wife and children in July 1918 in Yekaterinburg.  The children’s faces were smashed in with rifle butts and the bodies dissolved with sulphuric acid. The man in charge of the executioners, Jewish Bolshevik Yakov Sverdlov, was honoured by his comrades who renamed the city of Yekaterinburg as Sverdlovsk.

Police in London almost a century later did nothing to restrain Sverdlov’s fellow Marxists, co-racialists and co-religionists as they spewed their bile in the faces of Britons including Jez Turner, who was speaking that day at a protest against an exclusive Jewish police force known as Shomrim.

There was a time when London policemen would have known what the second ‘anti-fascist’ banner meant by displaying the number “43”.  This is a reference to the ’43 Group’, a gang of Jewish criminals backed by notorious East End gangster Jack Spot who sought to terrorise the followers of Sir Oswald Mosley and other British nationalists at the dawn of the multiracial transformation of our country during the late 1940s.

East End villain Jack Spot, backer of the notorious ’43 Group’ celebrated on the ‘anti-fascist’ banner above.

The 43 Group’s terror tactics were not confined to nationalist political activists. This Zionist gang was closely tied to the murderous terrorists of the Irgun, engaged in a campaign of bombings and assassinations against British soldiers and police as well as Arab civilians in what was then the British-administered Mandate of Palestine. One 43 Group activist David Landman (who later emigrated to Israel) was actively engaged with his sister and father in terrorist plots on British soil, including an attempt to assassinate Gen. Sir Evelyn Barker, former Commander of British Forces in Palestine.

As H&D assistant editor Peter Rushton pointed out in his speech on the day, the ‘anti-fascist’ mob represented the combined forces of anti-British terrorism: some were fans of the IRA (including the Harrods bombers who were leading activists in the London branch of Anti-Fascist Action), while others were fans of Irgun and the Stern Gang, whose bombers had tried to blow up Whitehall itself seventy years ago.

Yet these terrorist fan clubs went unmolested by the police.

After extensive pressure from Zionist lobby groups (the Community Security Trust and the Campaign Against Antisemitism) the police instead brought charges against Mr Turner whose speech (in contrast to the foul-mouthed and violent language of his adversaries) had contained no obscenities.

Judge David Tomlinson

Last Thursday the case came before a jury at Southwark Crown Court, in a three-day trial presided over by Judge David Tomlinson, who proved almost a parody of disgraceful judicial bias, and Jez Turner was duly convicted and sentenced to 12 months imprisonment.

At the very start of the trial Judge Tomlinson refused the application of Jez Turner’s barrister Adrian Davies to ask jury members whether they were members of any of the three Jewish groups involved in the proceedings.  Even this simple method of seeking to ensure a fair trial was rejected.

The judge went on to make repeated sarcastic interventions during Jez Turner’s testimony, which served no legal purpose and at best had the effect of distracting the defendant in the witness box, while at worst prejudicing the jury.

Betty Knout (alias Lazarus), the Zionist terrorist who planted a bomb on Whitehall just yards from the site of the demonstration

Jez Turner was being cross-examined by prosecuting counsel on lines from his speech three years ago.  A large part of this speech referred to historical questions, and had the prosecution wished to do so they could have brought ‘expert witness’ testimony from historically qualified witnesses to dispute the defendant’s interpretations.

Of course had they done so, the defence could also then have summoned their own expert witnesses, and the jury could have heard various aspects of Jewish history dispassionately debated.

But the prosecution chose not to bring any such expert testimony.  Instead the judge himself (a law graduate who claims no specific historical expertise and certainly did not demonstrate any) made his own crude interventions on historical topics. At one point he disputed Jez Turner’s contention that the Soviet Union had invaded Poland from the East in 1939 while Germany invaded from the West – the learned judge seemed to believe that the Soviets had only sought to invade Poland following Germany’s defeat in 1945!

Yakov Sverdlov, Jewish Bolshevik murderer of the Russian Royal Family

Even worse, Judge Tomlinson interrupted Jez Turner on what might be thought the incontrovertible point that Jews dominated the leadership of the Bolshevik Revolution, having a grossly disproportionate role in the leadership of the Soviet murder squads of the KGB and equivalent organisations thereafter.

In a blatant attempt to sway the jury, Judge Tomlinson questioned the defendant about Viktor Abakumov, asking rhetorically “was Abakumov a Jew”, and suggesting that this demolished the notion that the Soviet terror state was disproportionately Jewish.

Confronted with this random name out of the blue, Jez Turner was not equipped to enter a detailed historical debate with the judge from the witness box: nor should he have been expected to do so.  The judge’s interrogation of the witness was gravely improper – had the court wished to debate the racial composition of the Soviet bureaucracy (and specifically the KGB) the proper course was to introduce expert witnesses.

Viktor Abakumov, the Stalinist thug bizarrely namedropped by Judge Tomlinson

Judge Tomlinson implied that Abakumov was some sort of number two to Stalin in the postwar USSR.  In fact he was a (gentile) thug brought in by Stalin partly to counterbalance the power of KGB chief Beria.  It is certainly true that Stalin purged a large number of Jews (in various stages) from the leadership of the KGB and the Communist Party, and Abakumov was a leading apparatchik carrying out the postwar purges, but in the overall context of Soviet Communism he is hardly a major figure.

Still less does the presence of Abakumov and his ilk carrying out anti-Jewish purges disprove the defendant’s original argument that the Bolshevik Revolution and the Soviet state were disproportionately Jewish.  In fact the very presence of such vast numbers of Jews to be purged from leading positions rather proves Jez Turner’s argument!

Where did Judge Tomlinson get his obsession with Viktor Abakumov?  H&D suspects that the learned judge has recently read a widely-reviewed book on SMERSH, the murderous counter-intelligence force once headed by Abakumov: but this hardly makes Judge Tomlinson suitable to act as an expert witness in his own court!

In Part II of our analysis of the judicial travesty in Southwark, later this week, we shall further examine Judge Tomlinson’s actions and background.

Why not just buy the magazine and watch the YouTube videos? ITV spends fortune on pointless ‘infiltration’ of H&D meeting

On October 6th H&D hosted our latest John Tyndall Memorial Meeting in Preston.  As with all previous such events, this was very widely advertised in advance and reported afterwards both on this website and in the current edition of H&D.  All of the speeches were professionally filmed and are publicly available on YouTube.

The John Tyndall Memorial Meeting in Preston, October 2017

Nevertheless a television production company sent two young female journalists ‘undercover’ into the meeting, where they secretly filmed speeches that would in any case be broadcast in full on our YouTube channel.  Unfortunately these ‘undercover journalists’ – who used the names Mary McShane and Mary Mead – also claim to have recorded private conversations with members of the audience at the bar and in cars travelling from the event.
H&D greatly regrets this invasion of privacy.  While our own editor and assistant editor have not said anything in private that we would not say in public, we of course have no idea what members of the audience might say in their own private conversations, especially when these are recorded, edited and taken out of context by journalists.

‘Undercover reporter’ using the name Mary McShane at the October 2017 JTMM in Preston

We would emphasise the following points in reply to allegations contained in a letter sent to our assistant editor by the production company (allegations which may or may not be featured in the programme):
Heritage & Destiny is a non-partisan journal reflecting a wide spectrum of nationalist ideas.  Particular articles in the magazine should not be taken as reflecting an editorial line or shared ideology, still less should it be assumed that H&D promotes any particular position or agenda held by authors of such articles.
– Events hosted by H&D similarly reflect a broad range of ideas – as should be obvious from the fact that such speakers often disagree with each other on particular issues and represent diverse parties and groups.
– The London Forum and allied forums in various parts of the UK again feature a diverse range of speakers – the clue is in the name “forum”.
– Some of the individuals featured in the forthcoming ITV programme have no connection whatever with H&D.  For example, while we fully accept Anne Marie Waters right to her own opinions on Islam, and we deprecate attempts to silence her, there have been many articles critical of Ms Waters and her associates published both in the magazine and on this website.  Within the broad spectrum of nationalist ideas represented by H&D, we have sometimes printed articles which conform with Ms Waters’ anti-Islam agenda, but most articles on this theme have been critical of her approach.  In particular our assistant editor’s ‘Movement News’ column has been consistently critical of the EDL, Liberty GB and the rest of the ‘Islam-obsessed’ wing of nationalism.

Dr Jim Lewthwaite speaking at the 2017 JTMM

– It would be seriously defamatory to accuse our assistant editor of expressing sympathy with any form of terrorism during his speech at the October 6th meeting.  What he did say (and repeated in the current edition of the magazine) was that the Terrorism Act makes a mockery of the English language in its designation of a wide range of purely political activities as ‘terrorist’.  These concerns about the wide-ranging remit and potential injustice of the Terrorism Act are widely shared across the political spectrum.  Serious criminal charges have emerged against some individuals since the October 6th meeting.  None of those individuals was present at the meeting, and for obvious legal reasons we cannot comment further at this time.
– Our assistant editor did indeed state at the October 6th meeting that Ernst Zündel, Ursula Haverbeck and others prosecuted under Germany’s notorious laws suppressing free historical research will be seen as “heroes of the Europe of the future”.  Their alleged crimes are not in any way illegal in this country.  H&D does not promote any particular interpretation of Second World War history, and indeed some articles in H&D have suggested that nationalists should avoid association with historical revisionism (while others have argued that defence of academic and political freedom is central to our cause).
– As regards the Brexit referendum, there can be little doubt that concerns over immigration were the main motivation for many (arguably most) pro-Brexit voters.  It should be noted however that a significant minority of British nationalists took a pro-Remain stance in last year’s referendum, and this debate was featured in the magazine.
– In short, to draw “links” between diverse individuals and groups attending a meeting/forum (and in some cases between individuals who have never met or had anything to do with each other) is at best absurd and at worst defamatory.

Stasi state targets British nationalists

Alex Davies of National Action, speaking at H&D’s 2014 John Tyndall Memorial Meeting in Preston

[spacer height=”20px”]East Germany’s notorious Stasi – the political police – ceased to exist soon after the Berlin Wall came down in 1989 and the ‘German Democratic Republic’ disappeared into the dustbin of history.

Yet Stasi style policing is with us in Britain today, in the form of the ‘Terrorism Act’ that bans political groups, regardless of whether any ‘terrorist’ crimes have been committed or planned.

Last year Tory Home Secretary Amber Rudd banned the national-socialist youth group National Action. Former NA activist Jack Renshaw is in Preston prison on remand, awaiting charges for alleged membership of a ‘terrorist’ group; several serving British soldiers were arrested for alleged NA membership a few weeks ago in a still mysterious case; and this week several individuals seen as the former leaders of NA were similarly arrested, though not yet charged.

Now the ban has been extended to cover two alleged aliases for NA: Scottish Dawn and NS131. Under the Terrorism Act this latest action is unnecessary, as the law already forbids any attempt to restart a banned organisation under a new alias, but the new banning orders are probably a ‘belt and braces’ policy – a similar approach was taken in issuing extra bans for numerous aliases of the Islamist group Al-Muhajiroun.

The question remains whether this is the start of a wider crack down on the so-called ‘far right’, or whether it is a cosmetic exercise by the Home Office. Government experts must be well aware that a widespread crackdown on Islamism, including many banning orders and possible internment without trial, is likely – so it might seem politic to lock up a few White nationalists as well.

 

Top IRA paedophile blackmailed into spying

Gerry Adams was among the pallbearers at the 1988 funeral of IRA paedophile Brendan Davison

[spacer height=”20px”]Lurid allegations of “paedophile rings” in British politics are still being investigated – at vast expense – by various police forces and a statutory enquiry, despite evidence that so far appears flimsy at best.

Yet one political organisation has a definite and longstanding link to paedophilia, which it covered up with threats of murder.

We refer to the terrorist scum of the Provisional IRA and their political front Sinn Fein.

Author Martin Dillon this week revealed how one such paedophile – Brendan ‘Ruby’ Davison, IRA commander in the Markets area of South Belfast and a member of the terror gang’s General Headquarters staff – was blackmailed by British Intelligence and RUC Special Branch, who “had video of him having sex with young men in a sports centre.”[spacer height=”20px”]

Terrorist paedophile and spy: Brendan Davison

[spacer height=”20px”]Davison’s services for the secret state did not allow him to escape justice forever.  He was executed by the Ulster Volunteer Force in his own home on 25th July 1988, killed instantly by a 7.62x39mm bullet to the forehead.

Yet he remains a hero to Sinn Fein / IRA, whose leader Gerry Adams was a pallbearer at Davison’s funeral.  IRA godfather Adams had learned the previous year that his brother Liam was another paedophile who had raped his own daughter but he concealed this information from the authorities.[spacer height=”20px”]

The only known treatment for paedophilia

Remembering two British Sergeants 70 years after their brutal murder

July 29th was the 70th anniversary of a brutal terrorist outrage which our treacherous political establishment now wishes to forget: the murders of two young British Sergeants serving in Palestine, Mervyn Paice and Clifford Martin.[spacer height=”20px”]

Paice and Martin were kidnapped by the Irgun, a Zionist terror group whose leader Menachem Begin later became Prime Miniser of Israel.  They were held for eighteen days in bestial conditions, tortured and finally murdered.  Their bodies were left hanging in a eucalyptus grove near the Palestinian town of Netanya, where a mine was planted, exploding when British soldiers tried to cut down the bodies.

The Forgotten British Heroes Campaign, now chaired by Heritage and Destiny assistant editor Peter Rushton, held a memorial event in Bristol to mark the anniversary.

A wreath was laid at the grave of Sgt Paice in the churchyard of St Mary’s, Stoke Bishop, followed by a meeting in central Bristol addressed by Richard Edmonds, Jez Turner, Lady Michèle Renouf and Peter Rushton.

FBHC has previously held two demonstrations in Trafalgar Square, London, outside the Church of St Martin in the Fields, where a Stern Gang terrorist bomb was planted in March 1947 by Robert Misrahi. This Zionist bomber went on to enjoy an academic career in Paris where he still lives today, untroubled by prosecutors. FBHC is calling on the British authorities to extradite Misrahi for questioning about the Trafalgar Square bomb and other Stern Gang atrocities including the 1948 murder of Rex Farran.

Kevin Bryan on the Manchester Massacre

Manchester Arena bomb

[spacer height=”20px”]I thought I would leave it a few days before I commented on the events of five days ago, Mon 22nd May.

Late evening I was going to sleep when my daughter knocked on my bedroom door and said “Dad there has been a bomb at the MEN in Manchester”. I got out of bed, turned on my phone, turned on the TV and spent the next few hours watching the events unfold.

At first, News reporters were talking such nonsense, “It could have been a helium balloon, it could have been a large speaker exploding”!

You really could not make it up, they were showing live footage of thousands of youngsters running out into the street and at the same time reporting that the explosion may have been one of the giant helium balloons!!!

As soon as my daughter told me there had been an explosion at the MEN I knew exactly what had happened as did thousands of social media users and thousands more watching the TV across the country. It does not mean we are psychic: no it means we are realist, unlike the nation’s media that straight away start looking for excuses.

What happened on the night of Monday May 22nd was an absolute tragedy. 22 people, mainly children slaughtered on the altar of Fanatical Islam.

To we Nationalists, it came as no surprise and neither will the next one, be it tomorrow or next month. We know what is coming!

I don’t want to sound like I’m playing the “I told you so card”, but it is a fact that Nationalists have been warning about such attacks for years, and for years we have had mainly the same response: that of scare mongering and the racist label!

For at least two decades, Criminal Muslims have been destroying the lives of young White girls, their evil practice of grooming has meant that many young white girls will never be able to live a normal life. How could they? After being drugged beaten and gang raped by dozens of filthy evil alien criminals.

So now these cowards go one step further and blow up and maim our children.

As soon as the TV crews began filming people at the scene and around Manchester, their initial reaction was shock and anger. The Libtards had not as yet started to inflict their weakness but by midday Tuesday the propaganda machine was in full swing, every newspaper showed the picture of the Muslim woman with the Union Flag headscarf, they bombarded news reports and social media about how Muslim doctors and Muslim taxi drivers had given up their time to help.

Wait a minute, shouldn’t this be a normal human response? Typical of the controlled media pandering to the Muslim. What about the thousands of non-Muslims that did their human duty and helped out?

Kevin Bryan addressing the SW Forum in May 2017

Kevin Bryan addressing the SW Forum in May 2017

[spacer height=”20px”]It was Fanatical Muslims who committed this atrocity, so why pander to the few that helped out: everyone that helped out and saved lives and eased distress was on the night a hero.

Almost every forum on social media is now full of Liberal apologists: “they are not all bad you know”; “You can’t blame a whole community for the actions of a few extremists!”

The truth is, as with the grooming gangs, many in the Muslim community know who these people are, they pray in the same Mosques, they walk the same streets, they chat to the Imams, the community knows when they are off on their trips to Syria, Iraq and other places, in many cases the local Mosque and Muslim elders fund the trips abroad. Do they think they are funding for these young radicals to go sight seeing?

So now five days later, what are the public doing? Have they taken to the streets in their hundreds of thousands? Have they marched into Muslim areas demanding they weed out the evil in their community?

No they are attending candle lit vigils, sending pink hearts to each other and adding “I love Manchester” filters on FaceBook!

The weakness of the British people is just incredible, it has got to the point again where some on social media are saying about myself, “I am no better than Muslim extremists”. Why? Because I have told them the only answer if we are to survive as a race & nation and the only answer to protect us from more attacks is a policy of repatriation.

The Nationalist Response!

Some have been quick to arrange demos and marches in Manchester, that is of course up to individual groups but I know Manchester and if people are coming to Manchester thinking they are going to have the public onside and they will have a trouble-free, confrontation-free event then they are sadly deluded, THIS IS MANCHESTER, a Red City where even those grieving today will turn out and oppose you tomorrow, Greater Manchester Police are one of the most left wing forces in the country, they hate nationalists, Nationalists will be kettled in Manchester and their voice will not be heard.

If members of the National Front wish to attend these events then that is up to them but I do feel they need to know what to expect, they also need to realise that GMP will be looking for token arrests to appease the Muslim community.

I myself will be thinking hard over the next few days as to the National Front response; I already have ideas floating around.

What I will say is that all Nationalists must be united in condemning the slaughter of Monday May 22nd.

We must be united in condemning the Politicians that have allowed these people to settle and practice their vile religion in our land and we must be united in agreeing that the only answer can be the repatriation of the illegal alien hordes back to their country of origin, no other answer will secure a nation fit and free for our young white children.

Despite all the name calling, despite all the smears the National Front has now been telling the truth for the last 50 years, we will continue to warn people, we will continue TO TELL THE TRUTH.

Corbyn is right: the war on terror isn’t working – but we should also drain the swamp

Corbyn - War on Terror speech

Amid predictable fake outrage from his Conservative opponents, Jeremy Corbyn – no friend of H&D! – has dared to tell the truth.  As election campaigning resumed today (following several days hiatus due to the terrorist bombing of a Manchester concert hall) the Labour leader said: “We must be brave enough to admit the war on terror is simply not working. We need a smarter way to reduce the threat from countries that nurture terrorists and generate terrorism.”

It seems likely that the Manchester atrocity was carried out by a suicide bomber of Libyan origin, linked to that country’s version of Islamic State. If so, then it emanates from a truly Orwellian swamp. British governments once allied themselves with the earlier local version of IS – the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group – in terrorist and assassination plots against that country’s former dictator Col. Gaddafi.

Then under Tony Blair we changed tack, and delivered our former Islamist allies to Libyan torturers collaborating in a worldwide ‘war on terror’.  Sir Mark Allen (former MI6 counterterrorism director) might still face criminal charges over his role in the kidnapping and torture of LIFG leader Abdul Hakim Belhaj, though the relevant ministers including Jack Straw have typically dodged their responsibility.

In 2011 under David Cameron there was another policy lurch: Libya’s Islamists (or at least some of them) became our allies again in the campaign to oust Gaddafi.  And now in the resultant post-Gaddafi chaos they are back to being the enemy.

David Shayler - Libya plot

All this would be mad enough: what makes it really crazy is that among the 57 varieties of alien immigrant thronging British cities are a large community of Libyans with personal and family ties to these very characters who were sometimes our allies, while at other times consigned to the torture chamber.

Foreign and defence policy has never had much space for morality.  One response to the slaughter of British children in Manchester (the opposite of Corbyn’s policy) might be to carry out a reciprocal slaughter in Libya, targeting the extended families and support networks of IS.

But – setting moral questions entirely aside – H&D readers should recognise that such a policy (whether aiming at deterrence or merely revenge) requires precisely targeted and pitiless brutality. In their prime the likes of Gaddafi or Syria’s Hafez al-Assad were capable of that – hence their regimes survived.  Does anyone really believe that Britain has the will (let alone the local knowledge) to follow such a policy to its logical conclusion, to take whatever the terrorists throw back at us and throw back more of the same, until eventually we supposedly crush them?

It’s not going to happen.

Aftermath of the IRA's Manchester bomb in 1996. This bomb's materials were supplied by Col. Gaddafi, sworn enemy of this week's Manchester terrorists.

Aftermath of the IRA’s Manchester bomb in 1996. This bomb’s materials were supplied by Col. Gaddafi, sworn enemy of this week’s Manchester terrorists.

So we are left with the logic of Corbyn’s alternative. Some form of new deal with the Islamic world. We can only hope this would be less hypocritical then the deal with an earlier generation of bombers who targeted Manchester.  Among this week’s many tragic ironies is that the bomb that devastated Manchester city centre in 1996, planted just a few yards away from the scene of this week’s carnage, was the work of IRA godfathers armed by Col. Gaddafi, the bitter enemy of this week’s suicide bomber and his family.

No one was ever charged over that 1996 Manchester bombing – except a journalist and a police officer who dared to name the main suspect, the IRA’s Declan McCann (then of Crossmaglen, Co Armagh). McCann was spared arrest for political reasons and has since moved south to Castleblayney, Co Monaghan: he owns a property empire with his brother John. His IRA commanders went on to form part of Northern Ireland’s government and shake hands with the Queen.

 

Corbyn of course has his own dishonourable record of IRA apologetics. And though his approach to today’s failed war on terror makes sense, there’s one aspect that Corbyn and his ilk will never admit. Alongside a reassessment of foreign policy must come a draining of the multi-ethnic swamp. We should return the teeming non-British masses of our towns and cities back to their countries of origin.

[spacer height=”20px”]UPDATE: On tonight’s Channel 4 News, Theresa May’s Defence Secretary Sir Michael Fallon fell into a well-laid journalistic trap when he condemned what he thought were Jeremy Corbyn’s words about the war on terror, only to find they were the words of his senior Cabinet colleague, Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson!  A more sympathetic journalist in The Spectator had earlier today offered the Tories some wise strategic advice on how to handle this issue: they failed to take it – and as another Spectator columnist Rod Liddle puts it, this is turning into the worst Tory election campaign on record.

A disgrace to politics: Sinn Fein leader celebrates murderers

Michelle O'Neill with the late IRA terrorist godfather Martin McGuinness

Michelle O’Neill with the late IRA terrorist godfather Martin McGuinness

Sinn Fein leader Michelle O’Neill – almost certain to become Deputy First Minister of Northern Ireland within weeks – has hit a new low in her party’s disgraceful and bloody history.

Ms O’Neill is to appear as guest speaker on Sunday (April 30th) at what is being advertised as the ‘Loughgall Martyrs 30th Anniversary’, leaving from Altmore Chapel in Co Tyrone.

These “martyrs” were the murder gang from the East Tyrone Brigade of the IRA, headed by Jim Lynagh, Patrick Kelly and Pádraig McKearney. Among their proudest achievements was the butchery of Sir Norman Stronge, the 86-year-old former Speaker of Stormont, and his son James, at their home Tynan Abbey in January 1981, after which they burned down the Abbey and engaged in a 20-minute gunfight with policemen and soldiers in the Abbey grounds: more than 200 shots were fired.

The IRA murder gang’s Hiace van riddled with bullets after the SAS ambush at Loughgall in May 1987: an execution to celebrate rather than mourn as ‘martyrdom’.

The murderers’ luck ran out when they were killed in an SAS ambush while attempting to attack a police station in the village of Loughgall, Co Armagh, in May 1987.

These are the “martyrs” who are being celebrated by Michelle O’Neill next weekend: and no doubt this gangster’s moll will later expect to shake hands with the Queen.

In a more rational world she would share the fate of her beloved “martyrs”.

 

How a BNP demo almost led to the assassination of Ken Livingstone

Frank Portinari book

 

Just over 24 years ago a unity demonstration backed by the British National Party and an alliance of other patriots and opponents of terrorism almost led to the assassination of IRA sympathiser Ken Livingstone, who was then a Labour MP and later became Mayor of London.

The story is revealed in a new book Left-Right-Loyalist by Frank Portinari, former London commander for the Ulster Defence Association.

Today the Daily Star on Sunday broke the news under an “exclusive” headline: Second Northern Irish assassination plot on Ken Livingstone uncovered.  Later the same story was picked up by the Mail on Sunday.

(left to right) Ken Livingstone, Sinn Fein - IRA godfather Gerry Adams, and Jeremy Corbyn in London, 1983

(left to right) Ken Livingstone, Sinn Fein – IRA godfather Gerry Adams, and Jeremy Corbyn in London, 1983

Many H&D readers will remember the anti-IRA demonstration on 30th January 1993. Hundreds of patriots blocked the path of IRA supporters from the Troops Out Movement, who intended to march from Hyde Park to Kilburn (London’s Irish republican heartland).

Frank Portinari reveals in his new book that the intention was for the Ulster Freedom Fighters (UFF) to use ensuing chaos to assassinate Livingstone:
“Livingstone’s provocative support for Irish republican terrorists and their apologists made him public enemy number one.  A UFF unit decided to assassinate Livingstone on the day of the march. A volunteer on a motorbike would be parked nearby to transport the gunman to a safe house.”

Author Frank Portinari

However huge numbers of police intervened to protect the IRA marchers and their friend Livingstone. At least 296 BNP and Loyalist demonstrators were arrested – in fact the true figure was over 400, since many were released once transported some distance from Hyde Park, and hundreds more were ordered to disperse under threat of arrest.

One leading BNP activist well known to H&D rallied a group to break through the police lines: they almost succeeded, but police just about kept control and were then reinforced. Livingstone survived and was elected Mayor of London from 2000 to 2008.

Several of our demonstrators were advised by sympathetic police officers to dispose of weapons before arriving at police stations.

Due to train delays our assistant editor was late arriving at Hyde Park.  In those days before mobile phones he was surprised to see none of our comrades around, so followed the route of the IRA march into Kilburn, expecting to catch up with the counter-demonstration – not realising that all our people had been arrested or dispersed. Unfortunately he then found himself right in the heart of the IRA supporters at their rally outside the Sacred Heart church in Quex Road, Kilburn – but was then able to file a report for the BNP newspaper British Nationalist exposing the true nature of the speakers at this event, who gloated over the IRA’s murder of two British corporals.

Frank Portinari’s book (which will be reviewed in a forthcoming issue of H&D) can be obtained for £15 (+ £3 UK p&p) at his website, or by emailing author@leftrightloyalist.co.uk

 

Sinn Fein leader sanctioned murder

Gerry Adams – President of Sinn Fein (the political wing of the terrorist IRA) since 1983 – sanctioned the murder of a former Sinn Fein official, according to a BBC investigation broadcast on Tuesday night.

Adams was MP for Belfast West until 2011, and for the past five years has been a member of the Irish Parliament as TD for Louth.

An IRA informant told the BBC:
“I know from my experience in the IRA that murders have to be approved by the leadership. They have to be given approval by the leadership of the IRA and the military leadership of the IRA.  …Gerry Adams, he gives the final say.”

The programme referred specifically to the murder of Denis Donaldson, who for many years was a senior Sinn Fein official, latterly in charge of administration at the party offices in Stormont.  Since the 1980s Donaldson had been an agent for the British security service MI5 and the Special Branch of the Royal Ulster Constabulary. He was paid to provide intelligence about terrorism and other criminal activities of Adams and his gang.

In 2005 Donaldson confessed to his 20-year role as a British agent.  A few months later he was brutally murdered at his remote cottage home.

No-one has ever been convicted for the Donaldson murder. When an investigation was reopened in 2009, a splinter group called ‘Real IRA’ conveniently claimed responsibility. However the latest BBC investigation suggests this was nonsense, and that the IRA Army Council gave the orders. Gerry Adams and his close colleague Martin McGuinness (now Deputy First Minister of Northern Ireland) were the key figures within the IRA leadership throughout this period.

The latest allegations will probably not disturb Adams’s many celebrity supporters, ranging from U.S. presidential candidate Donald Trump to British Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn.
