In the years before he died, I often visited former IRA commander, Brendan Hughes, in his tiny flat in Divis Tower.

Although against any return to war, he was utterly opposed to the Good Friday Agreement, or "Got F*** All" as he called it.

Such words were heresy to Sinn Fein ears. Indeed, they could get you into considerable trouble.
