Jesus Wept! LVF thug finds god ... Again

By Stephen Breen

Published 25/02/2007

A notorious LVF leader in Portadown has found God - for the second time in three years!

Convicted extortionist Robin 'Billy' King has turned to religion - again - in a bid to distance himself from tensions between the LVF and senior north Belfast loyalist Jackie Mahood.

A former pal of sectarian butcher Billy 'King Rat' Wright, he's believed to have left the terror group over fears he could be targeted in violence between rival factions.

King refused to back his drug dealing pals in their dispute with Mahood and is now in hiding. Sources told us that the new LVF leadership is made up drug dealers who have links to republicans.

Said one source: "Robin's telling everyone he has found God again and this time he's going to stick with it.

"He told people he was turning to Christianity because he has had enough and just wants to keep his head down."

King, who received a 16-year jail sentence in 1994 for conspiracy to murder, has told friends he's turning his back on his former associates.
