Here we have proof that the British Establishment is run from top to bottom with traitorous scum, what will prosecute retired British soldiers at the same time as sending them to their deaths in Afghanistan and Iraq.
No doubt 'the Queen' will remain silent about this attack on her soldiers - as usual.
She is too busy going to dinner parties, and Prince Charles too busy lecturing us all on the joys and benefits of Islam, to give a toss about British troops and stand up for them and their interests.
The £200million inquiry into the Bloody Sunday shootings has found that soldiers were guilty of unlawful killing, it was claimed last night.
The suggestion raises the prospect of prosecutions of British soldiers nearly 40 years after the demonstration in Londonderry that cost the lives of 14 marchers.
The unlawful killing claim was made by the Guardian newspaper, which did not name a source for its information.
Nor did it give any further details of Lord Saville's report, which is based on 12 years of hearings and deliberation.

'Sources familiar with the inquiry said that Saville may not explicitly recommend criminal prosecutions,' said the report in the Guardian.
Much, it added, will depend on what the judge tells the Northern Ireland prosecutor, the Public Prosecution Service.
The shootings in January 1972 were a key event in the rise of the Provisional IRA, which used the deaths as a justification for its drive to push Britain out of Ulster.
Republican leaders dismissed as a whitewash the findings of an inquiry led by Lord Widgery soon after the shootings.
Widgery said the conduct of the Parachute Regiment soldiers came close to recklessness but that there would have been no deaths without the illegal demo.
British soldiers have always claimed they were fired upon before they opened fire themselves.

Lord Saville's inquiry was ordered by Tony Blair in 1998 as part of a deal to persuade-Sinn Fein leaders Gerry Adams and Martin McGuinness to sign up to the Good Friday agreement that ended the IRA terror campaign.
Mr McGuinness, now deputy first minister in Northern Ireland, was present during the Bloody Sunday events.
The inquiry findings are to be published next Tuesday following the longest legal process in British history.
A finding of unlawful killing against soldiers is certain to produce new bitterness and tension in Northern Ireland.
Prosecutors will need to decide whether success is likely for any prosecution and whether it would be in the public interest.
One key question is whether a court could rely on the memories of witnesses to an event that took place so long ago.
