Mr Frazer, who is apparently a loyalist campaigner of sorts , rang me today to complain about comments allegedly made about him on my blog. He said that he had not seen them but people had contacted him. I undertook to examine my blog and to delete any message which may be considered abusive or libellous. I could find only one item which referred to him at all. It was from “Mike Gambit”, not his real name I’m sure. He wondered why “the self proclaimed victims [sic] champion isn’t spitting nails over this issue”.
This seems to me to be a perfectly reasonable comment.
Stopping there, readers may wonder what the relationship is between me and Mr Frazer.
The answer is -absolutely none. I am a claimant on a writ issued in a court in the USA. My lawyers are Motley Rice of South Carolina. So , of Mr Frazer I have had no need.
Anyway , if one scrolls back in time to October 2011 , here is what the Sunday Times proclaimed.
“Libya will pay out to IRA victims”
Mr Frazer is quoted in that journal : “the deal has been agreed and the victims or their surviving families will receive between £2 million and £3 million each”
Three years on , nobody has seen a penny. Mr Frazer, in conversation with me , blamed the British Government for going back on their word. Bizzarely, this is the first I have heard of this.
His conversation was vaguely threatening, but he might just have been put up to that by others.
Fact is , I don’t threaten easily , especially about my parents’ murders.
He also criticised me for potentially queering a deal . I asked him if a deal was imminent. he said it was not.
I’m still trying to understand what he has done in the last three years to remedy the ‘betrayal’ by HMG.
Northern Ireland loyalists have had their share of carpetbaggers and charlatans in the last fifty years.
My claim relates to the brutal murder of my parents in 1990.
Any compensation would go substantially to my daughter who has had to live with the consequences of the incident, all her life.
Money is important to all victims.
For me? I have a separate action against the state for complicity in my parents’ murders.
I do not need to be rung up by a self proclaimed “loyalist” to be reminded of my responsibilities.
The tragedy is that republicans will continue to get away with it and all the posturing by Willy Frazer, if he is genuine, is to naught.
