It seems that Sinn Fein isn’t having any of it. The Andersonstown News reports Niall Ó Donnghaile, the party’s unelected representative for East Belfast (the third in as many years), was speaking about Sinn Fein’s demands that Mountpottinger Police station be closed and used for social housing instead. He dismissed their previous report declaring that the IMC’s views on the security force disengagement issue “are equally irrelevant as their views on any other issue”.
