The IRA Officer Commanding in the H-Blocks during the 1981 hunger strike has been interviewed in today’s Belfast Telegraph. Brendan ‘Bik’ McFarlane was speaking to journalist Brian Rowan and said that the British Government never had any intention of resolving the hunger strike and accused Margaret Thatcher’s government of trying to resolve the prison protest “on their terms” while attempting to “wreck” the IRA in the process.
