EWe’ve been a tad pre-occupied with technical difficulties over the weekend, so we missed a few things. Not least the SDLP’s party conference, and the 20 anniversaries of the Progressive Democrats and the Anglo Irish Agreement. One noteable key from the SDLP’s conference was Denis Bradley’s reminder that the controversial 50/50 recruitment policy should go once Catholics reach 30% of the force. He further recommended that police officers should work in or near their own areas.
