Some sunday newspaper are carrying interviews with a derry man
Willie carlin who as an ira volunteer was also an informer, He claims that one day he saw martin mcguinness emerging from a house that he knew M15 were using,
He didnt claim mcguinness was an informer but is convinced talks were going on
even in the early 80s,

,
There were talks between the 'RA and the british even in the 1970s

eg


"1972, June 20: Secret meeting takes place in Derry between representatives of the Irish Republican Army and the United Kingdom. On one side is Dáithí Ó Conaill, the Quartermaster General, and Gerry Adams, Officer Commanding the Belfast Brigade. On the other is Frank Steele, an officer with the Secret Intelligence Service or MI6, and Philip John Woodfield of the Northern Ireland Office (acting on behalf of William Whitelaw MP, the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, and the UK’s Conservative Party prime minster, Edward Heath MP). Matters discussed include the position of IRA volunteers in British custody, with demands that they be recognised as political prisoners. Woodfield argues that that IRA inmates already have that recognition through their “special category” status, and the matter is dropped. A ten-day bilateral ceasefire is agreed.

1972, June 26: The Irish Republican Army announces its ten-day bilateral ceasefire with the British Forces."

Why should any prisoner have special status
Its cost a fortune in the Midlands prison to have a special wing reserved for the boys

The british said John Downey was not wanted for any offence, but he was still
extradited last week, At a sensitive time this has certainly raised tensions,

The loyalists have been apoplectic about the OTRs. Meanwhile there's "We support Soldier F" stuff abounding. It was claimed the "poor wee soul" was too infirm to stand trial and yet there he was stating about in a tank recently.

It certainly worked. Riddled with informers and put on the run and paranoid by loyalists terrorists, that were supported with arms and intelligence by the British, Gerry and Martin wisely knew the game was up.
