Pat Finucane murder: 'Shocking state collusion', says PM

Source: BBC

The level of state collusion uncovered by a report into the murder of Belfast solicitor Pat Finucane is "shocking", Prime Minister David Cameron has said.

However, it concluded that there was "no overarching state conspiracy".

Sir Desmond de Silva's review confirmed that agents of the state were involved in the 1989 killing and that it should have been prevented.

Mr Finucane's widow, Geraldine, has dismissed the report as a "sham" and a "whitewash".

1. Ya think?

Anybody that knows the history of the British colonization and occupation of Ireland expects nothing less than full government complicity.

2. But at least they were nice enough to apologize...

For the horrible thing they claim they're not responsible for.

3. I love how he claims it was "collusion"

but not a "conspiracy".

That's a might fine line of distinction, a very self-serving line.
