Approach your problem from the right end and begin with the answers. Then one day, perhaps you will find the final question..

Raymond Gilmour: 'Abandoned' IRA supergrass lay dead in his flat for up to a week
RIP, a true hero
an incredibly brave man who put his life on the line to stop terrorist murderers from his community
From the article, it seems that despite his heroic actions, he was treated badly by the UK government
There goes my hero
Watch him as he goes
There goes my hero
He's ordinary

Most snitch because of money or blackmail (e.g. Joe Cahill on ppauper's favourite OT research project).
John Ford made a movie based on the book by his cousin Liam O Flaherty about informers (Victor McGlagnan)

I've never seen Birkenhead described quite that way - I grew up in Meols a few miles from there.

Maybe it was a plug for the hospitality branch. At the time I was thinking of breaking off my holidays in Manx in lieu of a day visit to that exquisite little village.
What about the millions of people who want to see the corner at Winslow, AZ, what?
