“All credit to the Policing Board..”

While we’re on policing and justice matters.. The Chief Constable, Hugh Orde, appeared on Hearts and Minds tonight – look away now if you’re waiting for the repeat. He was answering questions mostly on political matters.. It doesn’t start well with Noel Thompson apparently also confused about target dates and deadlines.. He’s not entirely accurate on the IMC report either. There are questions about policing the past, and about robust responses. One other quick note on Hugh Orde’s initial point, there’s nothing to stop the Secretary of State from introducing legislation on non-devolved matters.
