Sinn Fein want to back the police…

New York Congressman Jim Walsh thinks Sinn Fein wants to join the policing board: “But I believe that they want to. I think it is a question of when, not if. They know how important it is for there to be devolved government here in Northern Ireland. I do not know their timing but I believe it will happen.”
