Mercer's interest in the 'dirty war'…

AFTER last night’s claim by Cryptome that Tory MP Patrick Mercer was a FRU officer and his own claim that he was a founding member of a Northern Ireland ‘Ceasefire Committee’ in 1992, it makes some of his statements in the House of Commons look even more interesting…

For example, when Kevin McNamara secured a Westminster debate centring on collusion and the Stevens’ Inquiry last year, Mercer is quick to correct him on his use of the names of undercover military organisations.

McNamara was saying:

“At the centre of Stevens’s investigation and allegations of dirty tricks and unlawful activities carried out by the British Army are the members and officers of the force research unit
