Remembering How Unionist ‘King Rat’ Wright Was Eliminated

It’s interesting to hear how the Establishment politicians of the day were at pains to condemn the killing of the ruthless Unionist terrorist, Billy Wright.

It was long suspected that the King Rat, as he became known, was an agent for the colonial forces of the British state. He was believed to have been assisted in his actions by those same colonial forces in the murder of Nationalists and Republicans.

Few within the Republican community mourned his passing, although the deaths that followed, perpetrated by Unionist killers, were regrettable.
