Alienated but unbowed

In a RTE interview, Gary Mitchell, the intimidated Loyalist playwright, has confirmed his latest work will be on the relationship between the police and loyalist paramilitaries (membership reqd). His own and extended family are still in Northern Ireland after a number of moves for their own security. In a defiant interview, he attacks highlights ongoing paramilitary influence and the BBC for bias:

I always tell the truth, and if people aren’t happy, I see it as their problem…There are no-go areas in Northern Ireland where paramilitaries are the police. The people who intimidated my family and blew up my car are going to be the police. It’s allnonsense…I hope to have more work on TV but BBC Northern Ireland has told me it does not want to make anything about Northern Ireland that is not positive or about the peace process
