Please, anyone, do not answer that query if you feel it might be harmful to
your health. I completely understand.

Last time I checked into British politics, they were not into assassinations
and late-night disappearances of political enemies or outspoken critics. (Jame
Bond peccadillos to the contrary)
I don't think much of that even goes on in Northern Ireland these days. I
think that is out and out bang bang, random bombing stuff.
In fact I think we got our freedom of speech rights as part of our God-given
heritage from the British. what I always heard, anyway.
