“Trying to enforce the law..”

One of a series of reports from UTV about attacks on the emergency services, tonight’s report, on police on patrol in the Suffolk and Lenadoon area of West Belfast, was presented as evidence of an improvement in circumstances. The report is notable for the absence of any elected representatives, despite the repetition of the ubiquitous ‘community’ label.. and it’s notable for the prominence given to the opinion of a “community worker” – the Suffolk & Lenadoon Interface Group are currently the recipients of a 36 month period of funding worth £2,000,000 from Atlantic Philanthropies which began in January 2007.
