Hain: SF must ‘cut the crap’ and get on with it

More from Niall Stanage’s exclusive with Peter Hain in America. This time he fairly hammers Sinn Fein for its determination not to co-operate with the PSNI:

Hain insisted that “there is no reason for Sinn Fein not to engage with policing. I know the history and the conflict, but we are in a new era in Northern Ireland.” He also complained that some low-level instances in which Sinn Fein representatives had declined to co-operate with the PSNI were “petty and almost vindictive.” Referring to Sinn Fein’s reticence about signing up to the new policing plans, he said the party might as well “cut the crap and get on with it.”
