Haddock in hospital under armed guard…

Slugger hears that Mark Haddock, the killer/informer at the heart of the Police Ombudsman’s report yesterday, has been taken into hospital and is under armed guard…

  • Bemused

    Woner what the odds are of him dying in hospital of a mysterious Alexander Litvinienko-type malaise???

  • Henry94

    Now that the police should be protecting him they probably won’t.

  • Yokel

    Well in the new PSNI its their job to protect all members of the public from attack.

    Haddock and his mates are in serious diffs because most of them have now lost their rather more important type of police protection and they know it.

  • Rory

    Let us all wish Mr Haddock a speedy recovery. Unless he has left detailed records of his activities and involvement with his RUC handlers in the commission of these murders we do well to remember that dead men can’t talk.

  • kadenza

    I have a feeling that a number of loyalist agents and/or whistleblowers have died/being killed over the past decade at suspicous times

    Anyone know more?

    Bomb scare in the city centre.

  • DaithiO

    Nothing trivial I hope

  • jerryp

    Something fishy going on there ( sorry I couldn’t help it ).

  • Smoking out Haddock !

  • Ingram

    Putin strikes again??

  • Aidan

    Is he angling for some sympathy?

  • Harris

    Haddock knows too much and will eventually be taken out (first time almost worked). Question is, is there an appropriate individual that Haddock might trust to divulge what he knows before takiing two in the head.

    Harden him! Though he’s probably in having the bit of bowel that was previously removed, replaced, at the tax-payers cost of course, saying that, the tax-payer have been paying him for a while anyway! I say let him keep the collostomy bag, maybe the PSNI’ll but him shoes to match.

    Kadenza,

    Well recently we had the guy (code name Elvis) who walked into a PSNI station to get things off his chest, small things like murders and conspiracy to murder.
    His presence in the station was relayed throughout the chain of command and a swift phone call was made to the holding station from a very well known investigator who wished to interview him.

    As this investigators team raced at break-neck speed to the holding station they were disgusted to find that the man was nowhere to be found, apparently the duty book claims that Elvis left the building.
    But alls well that ends well the Elvis impersonator was found the next day at the foot of Cavehill after impersonating a Hang-glider at night time without the actual hang-glider.

    Then there was Evil Knevil who was jumping quite a few loyalist wives until the “Angel of Death” stopped him and his motor-bike on the crumlin road with a pump action shotgun.

    But my favourite has to be the “Lonesome Boatman” who knew way too much even for an agent and it was decided that he would have to paddle his own canoe, his boat suddenly became more cruise-missile than cruiser and blew the bajesus out of both of them.
    to this day even the worlds best forensic white coats have no idea how the cruiser turned into a cruise missile or even the material that made up the blast.
    British Intel at its finest dealing with big fish in a small pond who had too many oars in the water.

  • hard-nut

    So, what exciting end be-fits the likes of Mr Haddock then??

  • The Devil

    Rough guess would be a complication with his bowel, maybe it being twisted and internal bleeding, or maybe a clerical error lands him working the kitchens of Magherberry alongside some UVF related druggie who takes a knife and guts him like a fish.

  • Harris

    “So, what exciting end be-fits the likes of Mr Haddock then?”

    Are the spooks creative/smart enough to be able to plant some Pilonium 210 in his morning tea?

  • Rory

    Although tempted by the inevitable fishy quips above, I again ask us to wish that he has not “ad is chips”.

    On a human level I wish the wellness of any sick man and on a social level I would that Mark Haddock would regain his health and speak well and true of the things he knows, that his mind and soul might also ease and that he might give ease to the minds of others.

    “On a human level I wish the wellness of any sick man and on a social level I would that Mark Haddock would regain his health and speak well and true of the things he knows, that his mind and soul might also ease and that he might give ease to the minds of others.”

    Excuse me while I put down my violin. What’s all this shite talk, Rory?

  • gareth mccord

    not to serious just a op on his bag.
    But the spooks have been released we are told

  • Gonzo

    He’s in the Royal, where he has was taken “within the last fortnight”.

  • He’s in the Royal,
    Gonzo

    An appropriate place for a servant of the Crown.

    Or, does this mean he is shagging Zara Phillips?

    Perhaps for his service to Queen and Country Haddock may get a chance to spend time in the Royal Box?

  • heck

    he needs to remember what happened willian strobie. We PSNI/UVF agents get exposed they seem to have mysterious accidents.

    He was lucky to escape the first time. Could this this be the work of the new, SF approved, PSNI——–?

  • hard-nut

    With only 4 armed guards, I’m sure the spooks won’t find it 2 hard 2 slip sumthin sumwhere (hopefully)

    One thinks this is intentional….

  • loyalist

    ask daddy mccord were was the harbinsons on monday?were they not invited to mrs oloans report! anything to do with “bloody boots” rumour has it former uvf man raymond mccord jnr was a major suspect in their fathers murder……strange

  • I’m very interested in The Devil on Jan 23, 2007 @ 05:27 PM postings about the three unfortunates (Elvis, Evil Kneval & Lonesome Boatman) who shrugged this mortal coil “…But alls well that ends well the Elvis impersonator was found the next day at the foot of Cavehill after impersonating a Hang-glider at night time without the actual hang-glider.
    Then there was Evil Knevil who was jumping quite a few loyalist wives until the “Angel of Death” stopped him and his motor-bike on the crumlin road with a pump action shotgun.

    Can anyone find relevant links and post so I can read further? Thanks

    Loyalist

    I understand that Young Raymond WAS a suspect in the Harbinson murder, my question is this…Why do they not speak out then? I’m sure it pains them to watch Father McCord go on about his son being such a saint when theyknow otherwise. It baffles me.

  • Dr Strangelove

    Was there a reason why McCord Jnr was killed.. was it part of a feud ?

  • The Devil

    Anon,

    The first man walked into Antrim road police station to tell what he knew of the Finnucane assassination, Sir John Stevens team were racing to interview him when the Police in Antrim Police Station shop handed him over to a suicide squad who “suicided” him from the top of Cavehill.

    The Guy on the Bike was called Robinson he and his pillion passenger had just killed a pensioner in Ardoyne when the SAS who watched them collect the weaponary for the attack, cleared a V.C.P so that they could carry out the attack, then stiffed them after the attack.

    The Lonesomeboatman is real cloak and dagger “a work of art from Brit Intel” the man in question was involved with a hoard of sectarian killings and meetings with senior Unionists/businessmen in the Armagh/Down areas as well as being involved in the Dublin/Monaghan bombings but unlike the “Jackal” who passed away from cancer taking his secrets to the grave the boatman rattled the wrong cages, so they put an explosive device on his boat which incinerated him and left no forensic evidence.
    The socco team know it was an explosive device but didn’t know how it was done or with what material,

    If your looking for info the boating incident may only be recorded in clippings or saved print it was before the days of digital data, but the other two are easy enough to track down,

  • Picador

    The Devil is referring to RJ Kerr

  • The Devil

    Correct Picador and the boat was the Lorna Doon and it was on land at the time getting repaired

    Nov 97 I think

    And I think Intel had his mate charged with fraud to cover up making it look like an insurance job gone wrong….. sweet or what

    ‘Was there a reason why McCord Jnr was killed.. was it part of a feud ?’

    Where hav u been for the past 9 years??

  • gareth mccord

    RAYMOND WAS QUESTIONED BECAUSE HE LET OR WAS TOLD TO LET THE KILLERS STAY IN HIS HOUSE AFTER THEY KILLED HARBINSON.
    the most shocking fact about the harbinson killing was harbinson wife phoned haddock and haggarty to sort him out as he was beating her!!
    WHY HAVE THE HARBINSON FAMILY TRIED TO BLACKEN AND RIDUCLE THE MCCORD FAMILY WHEN THEY ARE THE ONES WHO STOPED HADDOCK AND HIS TEAM! AFTER ALL WHO GIVE THE ORDER TO HEGGARTY TO GET A TEAM AND KILL HARBINSON? WHY?
