Patten should probe MI5 and IRA collusion

Is it any wonder the phrase 'coming home to roost' springs to mind in light of the not-unexpected whining from the usual quarters about recruitment to the PSNI's Historical Enquiry Team?

Patten (yes, the same Patten who has remained dumb over the Jimmy Savile exposures) has also kept dumb over his destruction of the RUC.

His consultation process was a con and the sufferers were the RUC and law-abiding citizens.

One of the real questions is: what was the collusion between MI5 and the IRA?
