In an interview in the paper version of An Phoblacht out today (but not yet online), Gerry Adams has congratulated Paisley for his powersharing signal and said he understands the DUP is taking as much heat as Sinn Fein on the ground. He also lays out the clearest terms and conditions on the type of department he wants to see controlling policing and justice, and has repeated the party’s stance on ‘no role for MI5 in civic policing’. He’s also offering to meet Orde, the DUP and the British to resolve these issues.
