Police grill hero Chelsea Pensioner, 75, for FOUR hours over an IRA firefight which took place in 1972 

  • The Chelsea Pensioner is being hounded by investigators over his role in 1972
  • He was interviewed for four hours over the death of an IRA terrorist in Belfast
  • The former Royal Marine, now 75, fired at the armed man in the heat of a battle 
A Chelsea Pensioner is being hounded by investigators over his role in a firefight in Northern Ireland more than four decades ago.
The former Royal Marine was quizzed for four hours by Northern Ireland officers at the famous Royal Hospital Chelsea over the death of an IRA terrorist in an Army ambush in Belfast in July 1972.
The veteran, who is now 75, fired at the armed man in the heat of a battle as 'bullets rained down in all directions'.
He said he had been thrown into a 'Catch-22 monstrosity', in which he either tried to kill the man or watch his comrades be murdered.

Three years after the firefight, he was awarded a 'certificate of appreciation' by the commander of Northern Ireland operations, praising him for his 'good service' and 'devotion to duty'.
But last night the decorated war hero said he had been 'chased' over the incident by detectives.
He is the first known Chelsea Pensioner to be targeted by detectives dragging up historical cases from the time of Troubles.
Now the terrified veteran – who completed six tours of Northern Ireland during the height of IRA terrorism – spends his days fearing another knock at the door. He said he had been 'left to grow old' fearing prosecution. The pensioner, who also served in the Army, does not want to be named because he fears he could be attacked at his home in London.
Speaking to the Daily Mail from the hospital, he said: 'I am now under suspicion. My case is an example of how far these people are willing to go.
'Are they going to look for 95-year-old Normandy veterans next?
'It does not matter if you've served for 22 years in the Army and in the Marines, these people are still going to chase you. It does not even matter if you live in a castle in Scotland, a council estate in England, or a magnificent place like the Royal Hospital Chelsea, these people will still want to find you.'
Details of his plight came after it emerged a new unit has been set up to investigate every Army killing during the Troubles.
Up to 1,000 men in their 60s and 70s face being put through the 'witch-hunt', which has been condemned by MPs and military chiefs as 'disgraceful'.
Two ex-paratroopers are being prosecuted for murder over the killing of an IRA commander more than 40 years ago. The former soldiers, who had twice been assured they would not be hauled before the courts for gunning down Joe McCann, are the surviving members of the 1st Battalion Parachute Regiment patrol that opened fire in 1972. The men, now 67 and 65, are expected to stand trial next year for the Belfast killing – and face jail if convicted. The Police Service of Northern Ireland's taxpayer-funded Legacy Investigation Branch is set to re-open 238 'fatal incidents', which led to 302 deaths.

Speaking about the incident in 1972, the Chelsea Pensioner said he had fired at a terrorist holding a rifle in 'attack mode' towards his comrades. He does not know if his bullets killed the man.
He said: 'My company commander put me in the situation to ambush and if necessary kill an enemy who was trying to kill us.
'An ambush includes calamity never written about in any training manual. I fired at him but I don't know where my rounds landed. After 45 years, I still don't know. When I looked through my rifle scope I saw a man in the attack mode with a weapon.
'He was pointing his weapon toward my main gate where I knew there were other marines on sentry duty. I could have killed a man in July 1972, a man who was trying to kill Royal Marines that I was in a covert ambush to protect. I was acting under orders.
'This is a Catch-22 monstrosity but the act of ambush is legal in the eyes of our defence laws.'
In 1975, he received a letter from the commander and director of operations of Northern, Ireland praising him for his heroic service.

LOYAL SERVICE REWARDED  

The Royal Hospital Chelsea was founded by Charles II and designed by Sir Christopher Wren in the late 17th century to provide a home for veterans who had given loyal service to the nation.
Any former Army soldier over the age of 65, who is facing spending their advanced years alone, can apply for residence as a Chelsea Pensioner.
There are currently around 320 places – less than the number of applications – so the veteran’s Army service record is taken into account.
Although they are known for their scarlet uniforms, the pensioners wear an alternative navy blue uniform on a daily basis. This is worn with a dark ‘shako’ cap bearing the initials RH.
Chelsea Pensioners surrender their Army pension in return receiving board, lodging, clothing and full medical care.
Women were admitted for the first time in 2009.
The letter, seen by the Mail, says: 'I am authorised to signify by the award to you of this certificate my appreciation of the good service which you have rendered. I have given instructions that a note of your devotion to duty shall be made on your Record of Service.'
The Chelsea Pensioner said he had 'no doubt' that he was going to get another letter through the door from investigators.
He said: 'These people are going to get back to me but I don't know when. I'm worried because I'm certain they are going to jump on me.'
But he said he had taken part in a 'lawful ambush' in which 'you are there to kill and when they turn up with that weapon your job is to blow them apart'.
He added: 'For 45 years I have stood alone on this event with no offer of investigative explanation from any authority.
'Our services never needed more support than they do today.' He said the investigations were 'destroying morale' and serving as 'comfort to the enemy'.
The former soldier, who never married, decided to become a Chelsea Pensioner seven years ago.
Normally a Royal Marine cannot become a Chelsea Pensioner but because he served in the Army for six years, he was allowed to move into the famous hospital.
He said: 'As I got a bit older I knew it was a very safe and secure place for pensioners and an ideal place to spend the last years of my life.'

Justice for Northern Ireland veterans
28th January 2017 - London 


Rochdale BNP 1993 - TV interview film gained  by Searchlights Steve Tilzey

This was an example of the corrupt and controlled mass media, helping their violent communist and zionist bootboy thugs and paymasters to try to smash the BNP. This film was uploaded to Youtube by one 'Richard Marks' an ostensibly jewish name, who has also uploaded several militant communist vids to Youtube. More interesting is that account's interest in ITN footage from the 1993 Harrods bombing by IRA volunteers Patrick Hayes and Jan Taylor. These two marxist/trotskyist home grown left wing extremists served as IRA bombers were/are, violent bomb makers born in the UK, but doing the evil work of the IRA. They will have been known as 'friends'by Steve Tilzey. Another IRA friend of Tilzey was Manchester gangster and IRA supporter Dessie Noonan. Noonan was murdered by a yardie drug dealer a few years ago. Ironic to happen to such a staunch anti -racist ? Oh dear.

Ex-Paras face murder trial over 1972 shooting of Official IRA man

The pair are due to appear in court next year accused of killing a leading republican paramilitary more than 40 years ago.

Two former soldiers are to be prosecuted for the alleged murder of an Official IRA man in Northern Ireland more than four decades ago.
Joe McCann, 24, was shot dead in Belfast city centre on 15 April, 1972.
No charges were brought at the time following an investigation by the Royal Ulster Constabulary.
However, the decision has now been taken to prosecute Soldier A, now 67, and Soldier C, 65, who are surviving members of the Parachute Regiment patrol which fired on Mr McCann.

Joe McCann was shot dead in Belfast during the troubles. 
A Public Prosecution Service spokesman said: "Following a careful consideration of all the available evidence it has been decided to prosecute two men for the offence of murder."
The Historical Enquiries Team was set up to look into unresolved killings in Northern Ireland and carried out an investigation into Mr McCann's death in 2012.
The case was referred to the Director of Public Prosecutions in Northern Ireland by the attorney general in March 2014, and has been under review since then.

The PPS said: "The decision was reached following an objective and impartial application of the test for prosecution that was conducted in accordance with the code for prosecutors and with the benefit of advice from senior counsel."
The pair are likely to appear in court next year.

Mr McCann was a leading Official IRA activist in the early days of the Troubles.
A third member of the unit who fired at Mr McCann has since died, the PPS said.
Mr McCann's case is thought to be the second military prosecution involving Northern Ireland since the 1990s.
Files on the 1972 Bloody Sunday shootings by soldiers in Derry/Londonderry are with prosecutors.

Ex-Sinn Fein staffer joins Jeremy Corbyn's leadership team

Jeremy Corbyn has employed Jayne Fisher
Jeremy Corbyn has employed Jayne Fisher
Jeremy Corbyn has hired a former Sinn Fein staffer to his leadership team.
The Labour leader has employed Jayne Fisher, who headed up Sinn Fein's London office and once represented its leader Gerry Adams at a 2014 rally for Gaza in London, a party source confirmed.
Ms Fisher will work as a "stakeholder engagement manager" for Labour in an appointment which may prove controversial.
In 1984 - a decade before the first IRA ceasefire - Mr Corbyn met with Mr Adams in London, and a year later he opposed the Anglo-Irish Agreement saying it strengthened rather than weakened the border.
He also appointed John McDonnell as shadow chancellor, who has apologised for saying in 2003 that IRA members should be honoured for bringing the British to the negotiating table.
Ms Fisher first joined Labour at the age of 18, a source said, and is an active member of the party's Islington South branch.
She took part in arrangements for the Labour women's conference in the 1980s and 1990s and was involved with the Labour Party Irish Society from when it was established in 1998.
She also took part in a cross-party initiative called Friends of the Good Friday Agreement, which Labour former shadow Northern Ireland secretary Kevin McNamara was involved in launching.
Ms Fisher then worked for the Sinn Fein Parliamentary Group, which the source said was set up to help the Northern Irish party do political outreach work in Westminster during the peace process.
A Labour Party spokesman said: "We don't comment on staffing matters."
One Labour MP told the Press Association the move was "unsurprising" as Mr Corbyn and Ms Fisher are friends, but "completely ill-judged".

Now for Italexit! Europe hit by new anti-establishment revolt as Italian PM RESIGNS after losing a referendum that could now gift power to populists wanting to taking the country out of the euro 

  • The vote was on Italian prime minister Matteo Renzi's proposed reforms
  • Early polls suggested he was losing the vote by 11% in some areas of Italy
  • Lack of support was being seen as a failure to reach out to the poor
  • Result follows Brexit and Trump in citizens shunning political status quo
Italy is the latest  country to reject the establishment after Italian prime minister Matteo Renzi conceded the referendum and resigned. 
A shock poll by Demos in the week predicted an 11 percentage point margin in the south of the country, according to a Demos poll.
The vote could prompt an exit from the European Union and rejection would follow results in the Brexit referendum and the U.S. presidency race in citizens turning their back on the political status quo.
Mr Renzi accepted all responsibility for the stinging loss, saying he felt bitterness, rage, sadness and disappointment, and added: 'I wasn't able to do so [deliver change to Italy], so therefore I will have to leave.'
In an emotional press conference, Matteo Renzi said he did all he could, but will resign officially tomorrow when he meets his colleagues

Mr Renzi said he felt bitterness, rage, sadness and disappointment when he conceded the referendum, adding: 'I'd like to hug each and every one of you. 
'We had a chance, but we were not able to convince the majority of our citizens. 
'We had millions of votes, which is impressive, but not enough. 
'I accept all responsibility. 
'He who fights for an idea cannot lose
'The experience with my government will end here. 
'You can't pretend for the thousandth time that everything will remain. 
'I wanted to change. 
'I wasn't able to do so [deliver change to Italy], so therefore I will have to leave.'
In an emotional press conference, he said he did all he could, but will resign officially tomorrow when he meets his colleagues.  
The result will reduce the senate's influence and withdraw power from 20 regional governments in the country, gifting power to populists committed to taking the country out of the euro who argue the country's economy has stagnated since joining the currency nearly 15 years ago.
An exit poll by the Piepoli Institute/IPR for state television station RAI, estimated the 'No' vote at 54-58 percent against 42-46 percent for 'Yes'. 
Two other polls gave 'No' a similar lead of at least 10 points. 
Voting ended at 11 p.m.
The euro immediately fell against the dollar on the exit polls, slipping to $1.0580 from $1.0625.
The rejection represents a fresh blow to the European Union which is struggling to overcome an array of crises and was eager for Renzi to continue his reform drive in the euro zone's heavily indebted, third-largest economy.
Renzi said earlier this month that he would no longer bow to "diktats" from Brussels over fiscal restraints he regards as counterproductive at a time when most of the eurozone is struggling

Italy s proposing to run a budget deficit of 2.4 percent of GDP for the year, significantly higher than the 1.8 percent level it had promised to deliver earlier this year.
Deputies on Friday voted overwhelmingly in favour of a draft 2017 budget that the European Commission has warned will breach EU rules on the management of public finances. 
Mr Renzi has said should his reforms be rejected, he would have no interest in running the country.
Luca Comodo, director at polling company Ipsos, told the paper voters think blocking the government's plans is a vote against the establishment and said: 'The south is where protest and rage are amplified.' 
The issue has provoked sharp exchanges in recent weeks with Renzi seen in some quarters as Brussels-bashing in the run-up to a December 4 referendum on constitutional reform, on which he has staked his political future.
New spending plans in the budget include two billion euros more for healthcare, one billion for education and measues to help small companies and poorer families.
Renzi said earlier this month that he would no longer bow to "diktats" from Brussels over fiscal restraints he regards as counterproductive at a time when most of the eurozone is struggling.
He has also threatened to block the approval of the EU institutions' collective budget if other countries do not offer Italy more help in coping with the arrival of thousands of migrants on its southern shores.
A 2017 deficit of 2.4 percent of GDP would leave Italy comfortably within the EU ceiling of three percent.
But the Commission's economists say Rome should bring down its deficit faster to ensure that the upward trend in the country's huge debt mountain - equivalent to over 130 percent of GDP - is reversed.
The 2017 budget law will only be definitively approved once it has been examined by the second chamber of parliament, the Senate, which has not scheduled any debate on it until after the referendum.
Former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi cast his ballot to reject the reforms.
He shook hands with election officials and posed for photographers after voting in the capital, Rome.
Berlusconi's Forza Italia party is largely in disarray, with a tax fraud conviction keeping the 80-year-old centre-Right leader out of public office.

New Lib Dem MP Sarah Olney elected 'on a wave of anti-Brexit feeling' WALKS OUT of an interview after failing to answer questions on the EU

  • Sarah Olney disappeared off air just three minutes into a live broadcast 
  • Embarrassed aide was forced to intervene to say she had left the interview
  • Olney, who beat Goldsmith on a pledge to hold second EU referendum, failed to answer basic questions on Lib Dem Brexit policy  
The new Lib Dem MP Sarah Olney who said she was elected on a wave of anti-Brexit feeling walked out of a live radio interview today after failing to answer basic questions about the EU. 
Sarah Olney disappeared off air just three minutes into the broadcast, leaving a long, awkward silence before an embarrassed aide intervened to tell presenter Julia Hartley-Brewer that the new MP had left the interview. 
She failed to answer basic questions on her party's Brexit stance despite saying in her victory speech after beating pro-Brexit Zac Goldsmith this morning that she decided to stand because 'I felt I had to get involved' after June's leave vote.

In the Richmond Park by-election campaign Ms Olney exploited Mr Goldsmith's pro-Brexit stance to win the overwhelmingly pro-Remain constituency. 
Hours after winning she was booked into a live interview with Ms Hartley-Brewer on Talk Radio. 
But it only lasted three cringe-worthy minutes after Ms Olney was repeatedly grilled over her campaign pledge to demand a second EU referendum on the terms of Britain's exit from the EU. 
Ms Hartley-Brewer asked her: 'Voters knew what they were voting for in your by-election, they knew what they were voting for in the EU referendum. Why do we think that one election should be re-run and one shouldn't?'
Ms Olney said the terms of Brexit had not been clear during the referendum and it had been a vote on the departure rather than the destination.

'There was no clear manifesto for what happened to our membership of the single market or what happened to freedom of movement,' she said.
Ms Hartley-Brewer replied: 'Every single leading member of the Remain campaign said a vote to leave the EU was a vote to leave the single market. Nothing unclear about that at all.'
After a few seconds of awkward silence, an unnamed aide stepped in and told the presenter: 'I'm really sorry but Sarah has to leave now.'
A furious Ms Hartley-Brewer said the MP 'should be able to answer some simple questions' about her policy and asked for her to be put back on air but was told Ms Olney had another interview to attend.
'If she doesn't want to answer questions from a radio station perhaps she is not fit to be an MP', the presenter added. 
In her victory speech this morning Ms Olney appeared much more confident, claiming her victory had sent a 'shockwave' through Theresa May's Brexit policy. 
Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron told a victory rally in Richmond today his demand for a second referendum was 'gaining traction'

She said: 'When I saw what happened at the general election last year I felt I had to get involved.
'I think a lot of people in this community had the same feeling after the referendum. 
'Richmond Park is full of people like me who felt something was going wrong, that the politics of anger and division were on the rise, that the liberal tolerant values we took for granted were under threat.'
She added: 'Well, today we have said no. We will defend the Britain we love. We will stand up for the open, tolerant, united Britain we believe in. 
'The people of Richmond Park and North Kingston have sent a shockwave through this Conservative Brexit government and our message is clear: we do not want a hard Brexit, we do not want to be pulled out of the single market and we will not let intolerance, division and fear win.'   
Lib Dem leader Tim Farron joined Ms Olney in Richmond today to gloat about the victory. 
He claimed his party's shock win proves the case for a second referendum to stop Theresa May 'perverting' Brexit. 
He said there was 'no inevitability' that 'extreme positions' had to win as he said Ms Olney's victory was a vote against hard Brexit.

Ms Olney secured 49.6 per cent of the vote to inflict a crushing defeat on Zac Goldsmith in yesterday's by-election. The former Tory quit his seat in Parliament in protest at the plan to expand Heathrow.
Mr Farron was dismissed as 'silly' by Tory MPs today for trying to capitalise on result, which came in a constituency that backed Remain by 70 per cent and is one of the wealthiest in the country.  
Despite the criticism, Mr Farron made clear he planned to cash in on the result by claiming his second referendum plan was 'gaining traction' and was a 'threat' to dozens of Tory MPs with Lib Dem opponents.
At a victory rally on Richmond Green, he said: 'In the end the voters are king. 
'If the British people decide to say to Theresa May there is a better way forward than the one she is proceeding with and we then end up with a soft Brexit or, better, the terms of the deal are put to the British people in a referendum because they fear losing dozens of seats to the Liberal Democrats, we'll have done a great day's work.'
He added: 'The reality is wherever you are in this country there will be a balance of opinion but was was really striking over the last week was the number of leave voting, former Conservatives, voting for Sarah.
'Most of them don't regret their vote in June but they do regret Theresa May taking their vote and perverting it to something they never meant it to mean.
'They want to be in the single market even if they are outside the EU.
'Given that is the case, given millions voted for that, our argument that we should have a referendum on the terms of the deal is gaining traction.'

SARAH OLNEY'S CRINGE-WORTHY INTERVIEW IN FULL



Sarah Olney, pictured left, disappeared off air just three minutes into the broadcast, leaving a long, awkward silence before an embarrassed aide intervened to tell presenter Julia Hartley-Brewer, pictured on a Have I Got News for You episode, that the new MP had left the interview
Julia Hartley-Brewer: ‘My first question, absolutely the most crucial question, when is the second by-election going to be held?’
Sarah Olney: ‘The second by-election?’
JHB: ‘Well we don’t really know whether voters really knew what they were voting for when they elected you so shouldn’t we have a second by-election – you want a second EU referendum don’t you?’
SO: ‘I was very clear in my campaign exactly what I was standing for and the voters have returned me to Parliament with a clear mandate.’
JHB: ‘A clear mandate but less than 50 per cent of the voters of Richmond voted for you, are you sure you’ve got that mandate?’
SO: ‘Well I won’t the vote last night in the by-election and we’ve overturned a huge Conservative majority here.’
JHB: ‘You have and yet you have questioned the EU referendum vote.
‘You said that one of the big issues on which you stood - I mean we thought Heathrow would be the big issue, there wasn’t actually a single candidate who was campaigning for a third runway for Heathrow, so Heathrow became a dud issue in the by-election, it became all about Brexit.’
‘In what way have you got a mandate from the people of Richmond - if you don’t have more than 50 per cent of the vote the vote in the EU referendum on June 23rd was a much clearer mandate, wasn’t it?’
SO: ‘Well to be fair I campaigned on that issue in this by-election and I won a clear majority of the votes last night.’
JHB: ‘You absolutely did but your margin of victory was only about the same as the margin of victory in the EU referendum – about 4.5 per cent, in which case again, shouldn’t we re-run the by-election to be clear?’
SO: ‘We accept the result of the referendum – what we’re saying is we think there should be a further vote on the terms before we make the final decision to leave.’
JHB: ‘Did your party leader Tim Farron mention that before and did anyone else on the Remain campaign mention that on June 23rd?’
‘It’s the…er… development since the referendum.’
JHB: ‘So we’re allowed to change our policy after the referendum and then go back to revisit the referendum – is that what we’re doing?’
SO: ‘Sorry I missed that.’
JHB: ‘Well I’m just a bit confused because we had a remain campaign, we had a leave campaign, just as you’ve run a campaign, Zac Goldsmith ran a campaign, Christian Wolmar from the Labour party.
‘Voters knew what they were voting for in your by-election, they knew what they were voting for in the EU referendum.
‘Why do we think that one election should be re-run and one shouldn’t?’
SO: ‘Well in the referendum it wasn’t clear what people voted for – there wasn’t a clear manifesto.’
JHB: ‘I was clear.’
SO: ‘There wasn’t a clear manifesto set up for the terms of leaving – we leaved for departure but not a destination, there was no clear manifesto for what happens to our membership of the single market…’
JHB: ‘Yes there was – the Remain campaign said we were going to leave the single market if we voted out.’
[Long pause]
JHB: ‘Yes they did, they repeated it every single leading member of the Remain campaign said a vote to leave the EU was a vote to Leave the single market. Nothing unclear about that at all.’
Sarah’s aide: ‘'I'm really sorry but Sarah has to leave now.'
JHB: ‘No she doesn't. Sarah, if you want to be an elected a Member of Parliament I think you should probably be able to answer some simple questions about your policy. Can you get Sarah back on the line please?'
Aide: ‘I’m sorry about that, she’s got another interview now.’
JHB: ‘Can you get Sarah back on the line please. I don't know who you are, we've waited an hour to have this interview, if she doesn't want to answer questions from a radio station perhaps she's not fit to be an MP.’
Aide: ‘I’m very sorry she’s got another interview now.’
JHB: ‘Has she got another interview? That’s funny because she was booked in for this time.’
After a long pause, JHB told listeners: ‘So, that’s the Liberal Democrats, folks.’

NWN: But she is very 'nice' and 'respectable' according to the controlled 'mass media'. And that is what matters in a place like Richmond !

She looks like Red Rum. With an IQ to match.

 She did say before the election that she didn't mind if she lost as she has a nice husband and a nice house. Nice !

Black Santa Coming To Mall Of America For The 1st Time

 

 

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The Santa Experience inside the Mall of America is bringing a unique experience to Twin Cities families this year.
For the first time since it opened, a black Santa Claus will help spread the Christmas cheer.
Santa Larry Jefferson is from Dallas and will spend four days taking pictures and videos for families by appointment at the Santa Experience.
“It’s no big deal, I’m still Santa, I just happen to be a Santa of Color,” Jefferson said.
He is one of thousands of Santa’s helpers, who pose for pictures inside malls and shopping centers across the country.
“The Santa Experience is so excited to have created this opportunity and this experience,” said Landon Luther, the owner of The Santa Experience.
Luther met Jefferson at the Santa Convention in Branson, Missouri, over the summer.
“We had close to a 1,000 Santas there, and I was the only Santa of color,” Jefferson said.
He says kids of color really get a kick out of seeing a Santa who looks like them.
“It gives them something to identity with, but Santa is still just Santa,” Jefferson said. “Just Saturday, I was doing an event, and one child said, ‘Santa, you’re brown,’ and I said, ‘Yes, I am, but Santa comes in many different colors.’ He said, ‘Oh,’ so I gave him a candy cane, he ran off with other kids.”
