From yesterday’s Belfast Telegraph, an article that will infuriate as many as it pleases.
“The first history of the Royal Ulster Constabulary, the Thin Green Line, by historian Richard Doherty looks back over the 80 years of the RUC’s existence and assesses the role it has played in our turbulent history. In this exclusive extract, Doherty recalls how, despite sustaining terrible casualties itself, the RUC held the line between law and order and anarchy. It was undoubtedly, he maintains, a force for good.”
