       There is often talk of a state within a state, but no matter how you put it, it is still the state, one can't function without the other. It is not an anomaly, it is the way that any state functions. There is the public face of "respectability" and there is the slithering shadowy unseen apparatus that functions to keep the whole show on the road. The British state is probably the most polished and sophisticated in this process of keeping that slithering shadowy aspect concealed from public view. Now and again a tip of it slips into public view for a brief moment and then quietly slithers back into the background and the smiling suits once again take front stage.

Finucane's murder by the state within the state

     A state within a state signifies the fact that sections of the armed forces, police or intelligence services are running their own agenda, often with deadly consequences. They take it upon themselves to defeat perceived enemies of the state.
Britain is home to such a state, as is clear from the de Silva report into the murder of the lawyer Pat Finucane in 1989. Although the report is only a review of documents and not the public inquiry the family wanted, it is devastating enough.
    The report uses the term “collusion” to describe the role of the RUC Special Branch, the British army’s agent-running section (FRU) and the intelligence service MI5. But it amounts to a state conspiracy to kill Finucane, who acted for Republicans in Northern Ireland.
