A Spy Is Not Just For Christmas

Having spies is all the go these days.

Lord Laird warns of ‘white collar terrorist’ spies in high places in Northern Ireland and the Republic.

George Bush sees nothing wrong with spying without a court warrant, ‘for so long as the nation faces the continuing threat of an enemy that wants to kill American citizens’ i.e. forever.

Former Northern secretary Paul Murphy is confident that a spy ring existed at Stormont, but there is no mention of whether British agents were participants.

The spying thing is throwing up some important questions.

How many people constitute a ring? I’d guess at least four. Three, and it’d be a spy triangle. Just two and it’d be a spy line.

How many participant British agents would it take for the spy ring to become an exercise in British state collusion with paramiltaries?

How come Denis Donaldson looks so different in latest photos? The photos released when the initial spying scandal broke, with full head of hair and tache gave him an air of Derek Mountfield in his mid-1980s Everton pomp. Was it a disguise? Did he ditch the tache and the rug whenever he met with his handlers?

Is it just me, or does Gerry Adams’s beard look any different these days?
