Sinn Fein has announced its three nominees for the policing board, Alex Maskey, Martina Anderson and Daithi McKay. With Mitchel McLaughlin shunted to South Antrim and three prominent roles now given to Martina Anderson – Unionist outreach, equality spokesperson, and the policing board – is she being groomed to challenge Durkan in Foyle?Both Maskey and Anderson have prior criminal convictions that could bar them from serving in the PSNI but no such bars exist on membership of the Policing Board.
