'Changing' beliefs is usualy due to coming to a greater/fuller understanding, which is distinctly different to 'compromising' them. If you discover your peoples 'friend' is infact your peoples 'enemy', what would you do?

I doubt he saved too many people from bombs in the last decade or so, since the IRA has had a ceasefire since 1994.

Let' take a minute to consider here. This is not just "spying", as if that were an simple and harmless term, but it is more to the point treason considering the long history of the Brits repression of the Irish. Especially in view of the past one hundred and fifty years. Most of us of Irish extraction today have family histories of prison, exile, execution, starvation, expulsion from our land and homes and death in all manner.
No this "spying" better called treason makes a mockery of all our family and ancestors who died at the hands of the Brits. Mr. Donaldson's actions should be viewed as treason, ... and punished appropriately!

What about the north of ireland were our people are being discriminated against every day and theirs two sides to every story look at the UVF and UDA how many republican paramilitary members have they killed? 0 How many innocent people whos only crime is being catholic have they killed? countless because the british government just don't care
The IRA are terrorist scum, period. Fighting for freedom is one thing. The irish got their own republic already. Blowing up shopping malls full of women and kids to pay back punk behavior of 50 or 100 years ago is petty, pathetic, and cowardly.
GERMANY: Verfassungsschutz role endangers NPD prosecution
After the constitutional test trial initiated by the German government against the far-right NPD (Nationalsozialistische Partei Deutschlands) failed because the constitutional court found a prominent role of secret service informants in the party's leadership (see Statewatch Vol 12 nos 1 & 3), a second court case against violent far-right activists is in danger of collapsing because of a secret service informant's involvement in the planning of racist and anti-Semitic attacks.
