That’s policing. In this morning’s Newsletter, Ian Paisley argues that Sinn Fein must recognise the police, before there can be any return to an executive on the model of that envisaged by the Belfast Agreement. As blogged by Pete on Thursday, Adams has held out the prospect for resolution on that still vexed issue.
