A confrontation about a confrontation

While we watch, or listen, to the non-election of an Executive, thought I’d just point to this minor confrontation, between Sinn Féin and the PSNI. Yesterday the BBC briefly noted the report of a confrontation at a hunger strike commemoration march in the Camlough area, near Newry, while the police were diverting traffic. Today the SF MP Conor Murphy has issued a statement denying that any confrontation took place – “There were no stones thrown at the PSNI. There was no need for the PSNI to be anywhere near the march, yet they have engineered a story which is grounded in fiction and has no basis in fact.” And around we go again..
