“When it meets again is another matter”

Interesting news from Ken Reid at UTV: “The Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, Peter Hain, says Sinn Fein must hold its special Ard Fheis on policing before the planned March election”. And later: “Gerry Adams was not impressed”.

Adds: The Secretary of State’s previous position was long on exhortation but soft on imposing a timeframe. That appears to have changed with this announcement.
