Much ado about FRU……

TORY MP Patrick Mercer has denied he was a member of FRU, although he “had plenty to do with them in the past, as with all the intelligence agencies in Northern Ireland”. Disappointingly, there was no comment about the ‘ceasefire committee’ Mr Mercer founded in 1992 in either of the two Sundays that ran with the story.

A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
