Orde says unionists doing nothing about loyalist violence

The Daily Ireland reports that PSNI Chief Constable, Hugh Orde, has been called a “disgrace” by the chairman of the Loyalist Commission over his claim in an e-mail that the police “are the only ones doing anything about the loyalist feud”.

The Reverend Mervyn Gibson said Orde “doesn’t have a clue what he’s talking about”.

“If the PSNI did their job properly, we would not have had this feud in the first place,” he said. Meanwhile, another man was shot and wounded in Belfast as the loyalist feud continues.
