Policing drama: political gamesmanship

The latest editorial in the Belfast Telegraph believes policing is the key to to finding a solution that will stick:

“Policing has always been the key test of the Good Friday Agreement, because it goes to the heart of any arrangements that could reconcile unionist and nationalist aims. If a solution can be found that fully involves both communities, the future would be much brighter, and the government’s new approach is a blend of the carrot and stick.”
