Guardian’s Greenslade Stood Surety for IRA Terrorist
Roy Enjoys Provo’s Donegal Oysters


Roy Greenslade stood surety for IRA bomb suspect John Downey it emerged during the failed prosecution of Downey at the Old Bailey in London. Greenslade, the Guardian’s media commentator and a journalism professor at London’s City University, owns a home near Downey’s in Donegal. The Old Bailey was told, according to a report in the Irish Independent, that Greenslade gets his oysters from Downey’s farm.

Lt Anthony Daly, 23, Cpl Roy Bright, 36, L Cpl Jeffrey Young, 19, and Trooper Simon Tipper, also 19, all of the Blues and Royals, died in the blast along with seven of the regiment’s horses. Two hours after the Hyde Park blast, an IRA bomb killed seven Army bandsmen in nearby Regent’s Park.


The case against on-the-run John Downey, 62, collapsed after a senior judge heard the defendant was among the IRA terrorists who had received a “get out of jail free” letter protecting them from prosecution. Greenslade’s illustrious career in journalism includes editing the Mirror and writing for An Phoblacht, Sinn Fein’s pro-IRA propaganda sheet, he is also the Professor of Journalism at City University London.  Greenslade is said to be a close friend of former Sinn Fein vice president Pat Doherty, who was also a member of the IRA Army Council.

    Hmmm. I had been thinking about how level-headed Greenslade had been recently over the PIE scandal (against his tribe).

    Maybe one needs to know more here before rushing to judgement. But it does not look good at first glance.

    It’s looking more and more as though Blair did a deal with the IRA- their murderers got free passes whilst the Paras got hit with the Bloody Sunday inquiry, and probably the prosecutions which will follow.

    Guido is protecting Cameron today, no mention of that fat German bird basically pissing in his face and making him say thank you. No mention of the fact the Yanks and UK are about to get battered by the Ruskies. No, just some big long winded bit linking some fucking no mark journalist t some Paddy murder from years ago. Your game is slipping Guido you fat self hating Paddy fucktard.

    Lovely. 1338 service men dead. 7000+ injured. Lots of others had their lives ruined by tours of NI. Blair lets the murderers walk away. Shame he did not get the Nobel Peace prize in 1998……not.

    Those soldiers did their duty and paid the ultimate price; Blair did not do his and paid no price at all.

    If scum like him had seen what those ‘freedom fighters’ did to some of their victims,I am pretty sure it would wipe the smug grin off his face.

    If I described what I have seen you would moderate the hell out of my post and quite rightly.

And to be fare the general indifference of the public except when goaded by one side or the other. And of course the cold hard horror of the deaths. There are many bodies still literally buried and the evil will continue till those who speak of ‘justice’ start acting as if they do.

    Dear A.N.Killer,

    As part of the Good Friday agreement you have been absolved of all crimes you may have committed.*

    Best Regards,

    Peter Hain



    What was the purpose of sending a letter if NOT to pardon them for their crimes?

    Arthur Apple says:

    I fully agree with your comment. I lived in Belfast in the early 1970s and from what I saw the so called ‘republican armed struggle’ was pure thugery with menaces and murder nothing more. They are still at if from what I hear (I left over 20 years ago now). That Blair handed over ‘pardons’ to these people merely confirms my opinion of the man as shallow, morally stunted, money grasping criminal.

    That he may be, but I’ll bet he has a nice letter from Peter Hain saying he may not be judged.

    Weird things.

    1. Peter Hain says the letters are not an amnesty
    2. Peter Hain says the letters are not an immunity from prosecution
    3. Judge binned the case
    4. If Downey wasn’t wanted for anything … why did he ask for a letter ?
    5. What address did PSNI (or whatever) use for Downey’s letter ?
    6. Hain says PSNI did exhaustive checks …. but presumably not with the Met

    But why did it get that far. If the government gives a letter of immunity then that has to be binding.

    Otherwise the next time the government is in negotiations … actually, scratch that … the next time there will be no negotiations. Anybody would be a fool to believe the UK govt would act in good faith if they hand out these immunity letters and then renege on them.

    The main issue I have is the one-sidedness of the deal. Where are the immunity letters for all the UK troops in Ir*el*and.

    This truly is Tony B Liar’s true legacy.

    It is inconceivable that EVERY member of Bliar’s cabinet at the time did not know, and the actions of the government of the day are disgusting.

    Is there any other country where socialists piss on the rule of law and common decency?

    It sickens me knowing that I’m probably standing with my kids in the ASDA checkout beside one of these “get out of jail free” b’stards (no Tesco where I live coz of it’s colour scheme).

    I only heard of this in a glancing nature. Ugly.

    I found out relatively recently that someone I know had formerly been a member of the IRA. Although it did not come as an enormous surprise, one doesn’t go about all the time evaluation folk on what they might have been, one cannot. I have given him assistance of an intellectual nature and he is clearly grateful.

    Perhaps they should but, whatever you think of this Downey chap, he’s surely entitled to believe that when he has a letter signed by a govt minister telling him he’s off the hook then he’s off the hook.

    Just as when I get a letter from the taxman saying (say) ‘You owe us no more tax for 2003-2004′ I don’t expect to have him knocking on the door 10 years later giving it ‘we’ve had second thoughts’. (They haven’t – they don’t).

    Now we find out that they signed illegal amnesty letters which the Judge should have thrown out as ultra vires..

    Next question is: did they sign letters giving amnesty to eachother for all their crimes?

    Treacherous English liberal lefty shills….honestly, should be guilty of treason the self loathing left. Unionists like me who grew up in Northern Ireland in the Troubles don’t exist to Republicans or to their ‘Bratish’ fellow travellers. I was a kid when the house shook from IRA mortars lobbed over the RC Priest’s House and RC Primary school late at night to try and hit the combined RUC Police Army base…My Dad was a Methodist Minister and buried Police and Soldiers who had been shot in their cars, eviscerated by bombs hidden in milk urns on their farms.
    One body I did see in the Mortuary was of my primary school friend’s Dad, blown up by an UCBT placed under his car which went off via its mercury tilt switch when he left the family drive to go to work.
    My other primary school friend had their grandparents blown to pieces in the Enniskillen Remembrance Day bomb. One of the On the Run’s is allegedly wanted for poppy day.
    I voted for the Good Friday Agreement, I am no loyalist, I am a peaceful pro Brit Unionist, I am prepared to live with the 2 year sentence then release under licence scheme that we all voted for as part of the peace process. No-one voted for a semi-secret grubby one sided pro-IRA killer deal.
    Where is the English Outrage? The Queen’s own Guards are prevented from having justice by a Queen’s Counsel? English law hidden is behind by IRA killers when it’s convenient to play the Human Rights card, but torture and death when their revolutionary war suits….You reap what you sow when you lose your moral compass Mr Blair…


    Ulsterman, British Solider and SAS man Col Tim Collins speaks the truth. Sinn Fein IRA will never rest until they have rewritten history to suit their narrative and justify their bloody and futile ‘long war’.
    I am glad that as a child SAS men from across the UK were willing to lie in ditches risking death to take give the IRA a taste of their own warped medicine. Read the excellent Mark Urban’s ‘Big Boys Rules’ for the history. I will always honour the British soldiers who served and those who died to let me have a fairly normal childhood and for my parents to retire in relative peace.

    Default position of shitkickers like this is a) it wasn’t me, or b) it’s OK when we do it because we know best and it’s all in a good cause.

    It’s no hyperbolic to say thst unless we have some executions for treason, on a pretty grand scale, the sham of democracy that we have now will continue to degenerate, corruption will become endemic and the country will permanently lost, in the not too distant future, to a dictatorship, probably an izlamik one.

    I'm sur MI6 have a lust somewhere, it's time to dust it off says:

    Please define what you mean by lost.

    Do you mean all convicted murderers let out of jail, those on the run given free passes, Adams, McGuiness and dozens of other assorted dross made millionaires and put in charge of the education system in NI, a blind eye turned to continued drug-dealing, kneecapping and other forms of ‘protection’, racketeering, gun-running, prostitution and bribery winked at by the emasculated RUC/PSNI, etc.

    Bit like how Germany and Japan lost WWII, but ended up with bigger economies than ours, after we showered them with cash and rebuilt there nations at the expenses of our own, you mean?

    Got to give it to them they do work hard and the British youngsters need to take on some of the foreigners work ethics to get those jobs..

    The alternative is the elected dictatorships we have now. That twat Blair, on his sofa with despicable pieces of shit like Campbell and Powell (who for some insane reason tried to pretend his surname was pronounced entirely differently to the way it is spelled), ordering wars, or amnesties or rent-boys, or anything else that takes their fancy.

    You’re wrong about the tax, too. I know from personal experience.

    The solution to the undoubted problem you describe is not to import badly paid replacements, however willing.

    It is to motivate the indigenous. The carrot of reasonable pay coupled with the stick of absolutely no benefits for those able bodied who refuse work.

    It is only because we have such a shit welfare system that this problem exists, coupled with a shit education system

    Having a shit immigration system is not fixing problems, it’s entrenching them.

    The learned Judge appeared to have ignored the section of the letter that said ” so far as we are aware”. Northern Ireland was not aware of the situation with the UK Police. It could of course be argued that they should have made themselves aware.

    It is interesting that in the case of Lee Rigby the police ‘marksmen’ failed to kill two assassins bent on becoming martyrs yet in previous cases the succeeded in killing innocent and guilty, even if they were no threat.

    A Household Cavilry Colonel Napier who lived in Leigh, Nr Dorking Surrey and died a few years ago, in a cottage next to the village pub. Indeed there is a brass plate above the bar in THE PLOUGH where he would consume his lunchtime glass of Whisky. Col. Napier was a beachmaster at Dunkirk and did a few tours of duty in Belfast at the end of his military Career. He recounted that his soldiers captured a high ranking IRA individual after a furious encounter. This individual had 18 counts of murder to be laid at his door. Having started to process the individual, the British Army was ordered from on high, to let said IRA individual go,

    Yesterday on the BBC News Channel Hain referred to the IRA prisoners who had gone through the legal process and been found guilty before being released as ‘political prisoners’. I was surprised but not shocked that that was his mindset. This morning, however, on BBC 1 News he referred to them as ‘terrorists’. Did someone point something out to him overnight.

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
