Some IRA sources turned to stop their family being killed. Others just wanted money… I had no respect for them

SAS hero Andy McNab shares Northern Ireland secrets

Clive Owen and Andrea Riseborough

Pawns … Clive Owen and Andrea Riseborough as a British agent and IRA member in Shadow Dancer

 ITN Political Editor Tom Bradby’s time as a Northern Ireland correspondent in the Nineties left an indelible mark on him.

Now he has turned his novel Shadow Dancer – about The Troubles – into a movie thriller starring Clive Owen and Gillian Anderson.

The gritty film, which has had rave reviews, deals with the efforts of British undercover operatives to recruit IRA sources as informers.

Tom Bradby and Andy McNab

Chat … Tom Bradby and Andy McNab

Here, Tom talks to The Sun’s Security Adviser, Andy McNab, who worked undercover in Northern Ireland for 14 Intelligence Company – known as The Det – in the Eighties.

WHEN a little boy is killed in the crossfire of a gun battle between Irish Republicans and British soldiers, his sister Colette McVeigh’s path to a life of radicalism is set.

That is the shocking opening to the film Shadow Dancer — and 20 years on, as a single mother and active member of the IRA, she is arrested during a failed attempt to bomb the London Underground.

Colette, played by Andrea Riseborough, is presented with a dossier by MI5 officer Mac (Clive Owen) that reveals she has been under surveillance for some time.

She refuses to co-operate when she is shown photographic “evidence” that it was an IRA bullet that killed her brother.

Faced with the threat of years in prison away from her young son, she reluctantly agrees to turn informer, reporting to MI5 on the activities of her terrorist brothers.

As she and Mac become close, the MI5 man discovers that his boss (Gillian Anderson) may be using both him and Colette as pawns in a bigger game.

Andrea Riseborough

Target for turning … ‘Colette’, played by Andrea Riseborough

To former SAS man Andy, Tom’s gripping thriller was frighteningly familiar.

ANDY: “I really liked the film. I recognised straight away some of the motivations for the sources who turned.

“Colette’s motivation rings true. Women were the hardest to turn, and I never knew a woman do it for cash. It was almost always down to emotions.

“I remember one woman doing it because her mum had cancer and we could get her mum moved up the NHS waiting list.

“Other women did it because they had a son or a brother who was in an Active Service Unit (ASU) of the Provisional IRA and they agreed to inform in return for us trying to protect their men from getting killed by the security forces.”

TOM: “I remember a Special Branch guy telling me how one IRA man turned because his wife was having an affair with the local brigade commander. Another one because he was passed over for promotion.

“There were as many different reasons for turning as there were different people.”

ANDY: “I had about a 40 per cent success rate for turning targets.

“We would identify a weakness and work on it, getting together enough information until we could get the target in front of somebody from Special Branch or the Security Service to make the pitch.

“We set up one guy with evidence of his homosexuality, which was not a good thing in Derry in those days, and got him into the back of an RUC Land Rover where the SB guy made the pitch and threatened to expose him unless he turned informer.

“We thought we had got him and the guy said, ‘Go on, then.’ He called our bluff. That guy, you respect.”

Warrenpoint ambush

Bloody … Warrenpoint massacre in County Down in 1979, when 18 British troops were killed

TOM: “Would you say you respected those who said ‘No’ more than those who said ‘Yes’, even though those who said ‘Yes’ were taking an enormous risk?”

ANDY: “Yes but there was a hierarchy of those who said ‘Yes’.

“For the guys who did it for money there was no respect. They were despised. Would I have folded? Yes.”

TOM: “When you went on the streets trying to bring people in, personal chemistry was key, I suppose. As a member of The Det, I guess you grew your hair long.”

ANDY: “You had to look like you belonged. A housing estate on the Bogside was pretty much the same as a housing estate in south London, like where I grew up in Bermondsey, so, emotionally, you were tuned in to the environment. If I had grown up on the Bogside, I would probably have joined the IRA.”

TOM: “I was fascinated by the life-and-death relationship between the handler and source. As a handler, if you or they make one mistake, they are dead.”

ANDY: “It was always a priority to protect the source but it was not always successful.

“Take the sister of the ASU member who talks to you to protect him. If he gets killed on a job, it’s not as if she has got any recourse against you.

“You have to take into account the value of the information the source is giving you and where that source is going to be in the organisation in the future.

“If you have a low-level ASU member and you lose him, so what? You’ll get another. They were coming to us all the time.

“We were not worried about them. We were more worried about what they knew about us.

“We never called them ‘terrorists’ or ‘the enemy’. They were just ‘players’ because the whole thing was a game.”

Shadow Dancer

Thriller … Andrea Riseborough, Aidan Gillen, Domhnall Gleeson and Brid Brennan in Shadow Dancer

TOM: “People talk about the very intense relationship between the handler and the source because the source’s life is in the hands of the handler.”

ANDY: “In many cases we would manufacture a situation where the source would be in danger and they would be passed to someone like me to get them out of it. Hopefully you would get even more information out of them because of the emotional situation.”

TOM: “Do you ever think about guys you brought in who didn’t make it?”

ANDY: “No. I have written them out of my mind. Everyone is called a player and if they f****d up, or they did not like it, they should not have got involved.”

TOM: “But sometimes it must have been your guys who f****d up.”

ANDY: “It is not a science. Sometimes sources got killed.”

TOM: “You had to balance keeping your source alive against keeping people on the streets alive.

“What I really wanted out of the movie was that sense of an emotional bond between the handler and the source.

Shadow Dancer

Novel … Shadow Dancer

“You might put yourself on the line to bring someone in and you run them — but somewhere a Gillian Anderson character is responsible for keeping the rest of us alive.”

“The way I wrote it, you sympathise with Mac but, intellectually, you identify with Gillian Anderson’s character because she is prepared to make the hard decisions and he is not.”

ANDY: “If you know there is an ASU shoot-out planned against a military patrol and you are not sure when or where, somebody has to make the decision whether you cancel that patrol and potentially compromise the source who tipped you off about the shoot-out.

“Since most of us in The Det were from the three services, there was a high chance we would know the guys who might be going on patrol, unaware they would be attacked.

“If it was to be a bomb attack, we could sometimes substitute an inert explosive device for the real thing and then the ASU internal investigation would be about the quality of the device when it did not go off.”

TOM: “Towards the end it seemed like an incredible number of terrorist operations were going wrong.”

ANDY: “All sorts of sources were giving up people on their own side because they wanted some dominance when peace did happen.

“To the Provisional IRA and the INLA, it was all business. They were controlling everything from drugs to extortion to taxis.

“Everyone was making huge amounts of money. People were thinking it was all going to crumble and that is where we had a big influence.

“Everyone was hedging their bets. That is why the kill rate went up towards the end.

Andy McNab

At the sharp end … Andy McNab as a young soldier in Northern Ireland

“One of the reasons why peace negotiations were so easy and the transition happened so easily is because most of the hardliners who would have resisted were getting killed.

“It came to a point where when we were going in to pick up a source, there were so many different sources they almost collided.”

TOM: “The senior ones must have been hard to get. What about the IRA’s Army Council?”

ANDY: “They were totally penetrated. Right up to the top. Four of them were being run by the British. There was one Army Council member who had been run since 1985 by the security services.

“Unfortunately, the hardliners who were not killed — the Continuity IRA and the Real IRA — are now recruiting again.”

Shadow Dancer is in cinemas from August 24. Andy McNab’s new book, Battle Lines, is published by Bantam Press at £18.99.

[Derry] Israel: Democracy, Racism & Apartheid – An Insider’s View with Haneen Zoabi MK

[Derry] Israel: Democracy, Racism & Apartheid – An Insider’s View with Haneen Zoabi MK

  • Unison Building, corner of Clarendon St and Queen St, Derry
  • The Gasyard Feile in association with the Derry BDS Group is proud to invite you to a public talk by Haneen Zoabi MK, a Palestinian member of the Israeli Parliament on Wednesday 8th August in the Unison Building, corner of Clarendon St and Queen St, Derry at 8pm.This is a rare opportunity to find out directly from a public representative in the Israeli parliament how the self proclaimed “only democracy in the Middle East” truly functions. It promises to be an informative and eye-opening experience, and will afford those in attendance the opportunity to learn about issues relating to both the Israeli occupation of Palestine and the continuing erosion of democratic freedoms inside Israel, including the crackdown on the work of domestic and international NGOs.

    Information about Haneen Zoabi

    Haneen Zoabi MK, a Palestinian citizen of Israel who rose to international prominence following the Israeli attack on the 2010 Freedom Flotilla to Gaza, is a feminist, educationalist and parliamentarian. Elected to Israel’s parliament, the Knesset, as a BALAD party representative in 2009, she is the first Palestinian woman in Israel to represent an Arab-Palestinian political party in Israel and has become one of the state’s most outspoken and eloquent critics, and thus, one the most controversial and hated politicians in the Knesset. Ms Zoabi will be on a speaking tour of Ireland from Monday 6th to Friday 10th August, hosted by the Ireland-Palestine Solidarity Campaign.

    Ms Zoabi, who was on board the Mavi Marmara ship when it was stormed by Israeli commandos, condemned the raid in Israel’s parliament as “a pirate military operation”. Her involvement led to her being portrayed as a hate figure by the Israeli right. Ms. Zoabi was called “traitor” and “terrorist” by her fellow parliamentarians, suffered an attempted by physical assault by one of her Knesset colleagues, received death threats, and demands from the Israeli Interior Minister, Eli Yishai, that her parliamentary immunity and Israeli citizenship be revoked. As a result the Knesset has since removed a number of Ms Zoabi’s parliamentary privileges, including the right to participate in discussions and to vote in parliamentary committees. In another incident she was shot in the back and neck with rubber bullets by Israeli police during a demonstration against right-wing Jewish extremists in northern Israel in 2010.

    With a background in education and media, Ms Zoabi campaigns for equal rights for all Israel’s citizens and for an end to the Israeli occupation of the Palestinian Territories. She believes that the Israeli state ideology of Zionism is inherently racist and points to over 30 Israeli laws that legally discriminate against Palestinian citizens of Israel. Describing her quest for equality she has said, “The problem is not simply the terms of citizenship: we want to be equal to the Jews, but also, as the indigenous people, this homeland belongs to us. I want to be equal not because I immigrated or because I’m a citizen. Primarily I want to be equal because it is my homeland and nobody has the right to take it away.” At the Russell Tribunal on Palestine in South Africa she testified that Israel was an a state of “apartheid discrimination” and that “we the [Palestinian] citizens are a strategic threat because we reveal more than Palestinians in the Occupied Territories the contradiction behind the Jewish state and democracy”.

    Ms Zoabi has been at the forefront in opposing the introduction of loyalty oaths for Israel’s non-Jewish minorities, Admission Committees and other anti-democratic legislation, condemning leading Israeli politicians, including the prime minister, as “all a bunch of fascists pure and simple.” Of the current legislative assault on Israel’s already-limited democracy she remarks that it is “a gradual continuation of long-standing policies that confiscated my land; that discriminate against me; and that refuse to recognize me as an equal citizen and as one of the owners of this homeland.”

    Ms Zoabi additionally brings a much needed feminist perspective to the struggle for equality and civil rights, calling for Israeli feminists to join with Palestinian advocates: “We can’t call ourselves feminists if we occupy other women, demolish their homes, force them to live under a blockade, support settlement expansion, and then come home and talk about women’s rights.”

    Despite ongoing harassment and threats Haneen remains undaunted; referring back to those she is elected to represent, she has remarked, “I was not elected to keep silent or to sit at the table and clap”.

FASCIST UDA NUT IS SICK ANIMAL ABUSER

THIS IS the UDA-linked leader of  ‘ the north west infidels ‘ who led an anti-Irish protest last week.

John ‘ Snowy ‘ Shaw is the man behind the notorious EDL breakaway group – but we can also reveal he’s also a sick animal abuser. Last week he led his band of football hooligans and racists on a march through Liverpool. Shaw tried to hide from the cameras but was spotted by anti-fascists as his group confronted hundreds of marchers from the James Larkin Society, who were holding their annual parade.  Shaw’s mob claim the anti-fascist march was harbouring members of the Real IRA. The two sides confronted each other and traded insults for two hours separated by hundreds of police who managed to keep a lid of the tinderbox scene but Shaw wasn’t just hiding his face from the event he is also hiding the shameful truth that he’s now a convicted animal abuser. Shaw, 41, was convicted in court last month of starving five llamas to death on his Yorkshire farm. Shaw had the audacity to claim he couldn’t afford to feed the animals.

Yet as our picture shows he has plenty of cash to jet over to the North of Ireland to attend loyalist parades. Last summer we revealed how Shaw  – who plays the drum in an English ‘ kick-the-pope ‘ band – visited Ulster again to take part in an Apprentice Boys parade in Derry. While here he went on long boozing sessions as he rubbed shoulders with UDA members. But the smirking anti-Islamist told a court in England this week how he hadn’t enough cash to feed the deprived animals. Harrogate magistrates heard five of Shaw’s llamas died, while the other animals were found in an emaciated state in a frozen field on the outskirts of Knaresborough. The animals were discovered in February, with scant grazing, an empty ring-feeder and dilapidated shelter. Shaw, of Littondale Avenue, Knaresborough, said he could not afford to feed them.

He pleaded guilty to causing unnecessary suffering leading to death and two counts of not providing a suitable diet and failing to protect the llamas from pain, suffering and disease. He was jailed for 12 weeks, suspended for a year, and ordered to do 200 hours of unpaid work, with £3,050 costs, and given a 10-year ban on keeping animals. Matthew Collins from anti-fascist group Hope-Not-Hate says Shaw has spent a fortune travelling the UK to spread his message of hate. ” When he’s not doing roof top protests or holding provocative marches and empty demonstrations in the north of England or the streets of Scotland, Snowy also likes marching with a loyalist flute band in Yorkshire,” says Collins. ” He also likes popping over to Derry and Belfast where he likes to swagger around like he is the cock of the north, drinking largers and having his photograph taken in front of murals.

” The average cost of a flight from Manchester to Derry or Belfast, is around £100 if you book early. ” It is our estimate, that in the last twelve months on travel alone, John ‘ Snowy ‘ Shaw will have easily spent way over £1500 on trains, boats, petrol and planes.” The pathetic hate campaigner split from the notorious EDL after a fall out with leader Tommy Robinson. Shaw was once charged along with Ulster EDL leader Leon McCreery for a bizarre anti-Muslim rooftop protest in Dudley, West Midlands but the charges were later dropped. Leon is the son of murdered UDA thug Leonard McCreery and nephew to former Manchester United star David McCreery. The dozy pair scaled the roof of a disused factory in Dudley with provocative banners stating ‘ No to the Burka ‘ and ‘ No Mosque ‘. 

The Sunday World recently revealed how Shaw was desperately trying to get loyalist paramilitary groups involved in his violent anti-immigration campaign. And Shaw showed his true sectarian colours in a letter to far-right followers when he described EDL leader Robinson as a ” little Fenian bastard ” a ” ginger fenian (sic) c*** ” and a ” leprechaun **** “. Interviewed in 2010 before he left the EDL, Shaw told how he had wanted to previously come to the North of Ireland as a member of the British Army as a teenager, but the ‘ hard man’s ‘ mother had stopped him joining the army as she was scared he would be hurt if he came to the North of Ireland. Not long after the interview, Shaw was ejected from the group after a minor power struggle and reinvented himself as a self-style paramilitary ” anti-Jihadist ” and rival to the EDL’s leadership. Since then Shaw has been playing on the fact that the EDL leader has Irish roots to plant sectarian tensions in the bully boy outfit. Shaw has even stated playing the drums in the Yorkshire based ” Leeds Crown Defenders ” loyalist flute band and now rubs shoulders with English UDA chief Frank Portinari.

Film Screening & Talk: Radical Trade Unionism from Mother Jones to Today

Film Screening & Talk: Radical Trade Unionism from Mother Jones to Today

  • Documentary Filmscreening followed by talk by Rosemary FeurerMother Jones: America’s Most Dangerous Woman is a new documentary about the amazing labor heroine, Mary Harris Jones, known as “Mother” Jones.Mother Jones mobilized thousands of workers in struggles for justice in the early 20th century.The documentary shows how Mother Jones’ organizing career influenced the history of early 20th century United States.Featuring historian Elliott Gorn, leading biographer of Mother Jones, it shows how Mother Jones transformed personal and political grief and rage into an effective persona that led workers into battles that changed the course of history.

    This documentary depicts her life and times in a 24 minute film, ideal for classroom, union meetings and other events.

    It is sure to spark discussions and reflections.

    For labor activists such as Mother Jones, labor and civil rights such as freedom of speech and assembly were often a goal rather than a reality. The documentary evokes the terrible conditions and labor oppression that motivated her to travel across the country, mobilizing thousands to fight back.

    A “music video” of the 1914 “Ludlow massacre” and Mother Jones’ role in these events brings to life a forgotten vista of brutalities that immigrant laborers in the U.S. faced a century ago.

    As Mother Jones notes about the brutal “Ludlow massacre”: “The workers lost because they had only the Constitution. The other side had bayonets.”

    The use of hired mercenaries and public police forces to brutalize and suppress workers rights was a common condition of the period. While we are taught that the U.S. has guaranteed basic freedoms, the history of this period reveals an oft-buried history of the fragile status of freedom for labor in this country.

    The documentary includes rare photos as well as the only existing live footage of her at age “100” proclaiming she is still a radical, still awaits the day that the people will “replace this moneyed civilization,” and “longs for the day when labor will have the destination of the nation in her own hands.”

    The documentary was produced by Rosemary Feurer. It was co-directed by Feurer and Laura Vazquez.
