This "all as bad as each other" nonsense is nothing but that, nonsense.

It was a great series but I'd hoped for more in depth stuff to be honest. We'd known about the vast vast majority of it already. Interesting that McIntyre said MI5 still had copies of all the documents, including the stuff RUC Special Branch thought they'd managed to destroy.
Of course that will be sealed for many more decades, if indeed it ever sees the light of day.
In very general term.....yes


Also the extent to which the IRA was infiltrated by informers right up to army council level is still to emerge.

Also the british athourities allowed british subjects to be murdered by the IRA to protect these informers.

And the british authorities aided and abetted british subjects in murdering innocent civilians on both sides of the border in order to get their agents to the top of the loyalist killing machines and keep them there and do their bidding. We know all that, and have done for decades. Collusion was never an illusion! Not sure what point you're trying to make with your last sentence to be honest.

Very good series, Interesting in episode 7 they interviewed sharp
critics of Adams in Anthony mcintyre, Matt Treacy and kieran conway,
Matt Treacy was a senior IRA man in Dublin who went on to be martin ferris
PA in the dail, HE fell out with the movement over having to hand over a certain amount of his salary to the party, he also alleged he was at a meeting one night where some very nasty comments about mairia cahill were passed, others who claim to have been at the meeting deny it,
