Freddie Scappaticci should have asked his FRU handlers to transfer him over here to New York if he wanted to gaze in legal safety at photos of animals and human beings, of both genders, enjoying sexual congress.
In the US such photos can be easily and legally accessed. Just type in ‘animal sex with people’ into the Google search box and then choose images.
It’s called the First Amendment.
Scap would have had a ball, so to speak, with no legal comeback.
Mind you, the charge does make you wonder. What is the Kenova team up to? The effect of this is to diminish and demean Britain’s No 1 spy in the IRA. Why? If I was Freddie, I’d be more than a little worried and maybe thinking ‘I’m about to be set up to save my handlers!’
In May’s Britain? Surely not!
We shall see.
