Even Stephen Nolan has been forced to highlight the plight of abuse victims. Two days in a row he has had Kincora victims on his show.
Here is Victim 1
It is very brave of these particular victims to speak out and they deserve everyone`s support in helping them to eventually get some sort of long delayed justice.
However, in trying to get to grips with the full extent of Kincora we have to start asking the right questions, particularly about William McGrath.
These are the major points which I feel we need to know about him and his associates.
1 How did he manage to gain “credibility” in Christian circles within N. Ireland? Let`s face it, Christians are not going to listen to just anybody, no matter how gifted “a preacher” they may seem to be. There are always influential Christians in the background vouching for an individual in order for them to gain credibility.
2 What gave him credibility within “Unionist” political circles in the 1960s and early 70s. Politicians are notorious for ignoring people they regard as “NOBODIES.” Yet many leading “Unionist” politicians of the 1960s and early 1970s were willing to associate themselves with McGrath for some reason?
3. Why were so many people who were potential “Loyalist paramilitaries” willing to grant a hearing to someone like McGrath? People who are willing take up arms are usually not the type of people who are easily impressed with someone who is a mere mouthpiece.
4 Why was he so important to MI5? They are unlikely to go to great lengths to protect a mere “informer.” Informers within Unionism and “Loyalism” are “a dime a dozen.” He was certainly a lot more than just a mere “informer.”
5 Who were his contacts and associates in London?
When you start to get answers to the above questions you will start to get an accurate picture of what was going on. What is more, you will start to realise there were the same type of people in the “Republican” community carrying out the same type of exploits and they were controlled by the same type of handlers!
