‘Terrorist’ double standards shame our Disunited Kingdom

INLA godfather Harry Flynn

While media attention focuses on Westminster’s Brexit drama, a far more blatant betrayal of the national interest by Theresa May’s government proceeds unchallenged.

A retired Parachute Regiment soldier is facing prosecution for his role in ‘Bloody Sunday’ almost half a century ago, in yet another naked appeasement of Sinn Fein / IRA. While most actual terrorists in Ulster were given an amnesty for their crimes as part of the now collapsing ‘Good Friday Agreement’, British soldiers are still at risk of being hauled into court and accused of ‘murder’.

The latest victim is known only as ‘Soldier F’: now in his 70s, he faces two murder charges and four of attempted murder. This week a fellow veteran handed back his service medal in protest at this politically motivated prosecution.

Meanwhile a notorious terrorist godfather basks in the sun, even though his gang took no part in the Good Friday Agreement and the amnesty process, so in theory there is nothing to prevent his apprehension.

Harry Flynn runs the Celts Well pub in the Majorcan resort of Santa Ponsa, where his INLA flag proudly flies above the bar and terrorist memorabilia is openly displayed.

He was on the run for many years after escaping from jail in 1975 while awaiting trial for a bank robbery carried out to raise funds for INLA, and in 1987 he was jailed in France together with terrorist confederates after taking delivery of an arms shipment including a hundred anti-tank weapons, forty Kalashnikov rifles, three machineguns and two mortars.

At that point British authorities sought his extradition, as he was wanted for questioning as a senior INLA commander in relation to the murder of Conservative MP Airey Neave.

Following in their disreputable tradition of protecting anti-British terrorists (such as Sorbonne philosopher Professor Robert Misrahi, who planted a bomb in London for the Zionist Stern Gang but has never faced justice), French authorities refused to extradite Flynn, and he moved on to Majorca where he has lived for the past thirty years.

H&D readers might be forgiven for wondering why today’s British soldiers should continue to obey the orders of a treacherous government.
