“Ulster Unionists and the SDLP were unhappy with parts of the legislation”

The BBC won’t allow me to post the video of the on-camera row between the UUP’s Basil McCrea and the Alliance Party’s Stephen Farry after the latter accused the former of having the “same agenda” as “dissident republicans” – there may be something in Hansard later. And, having apparently signed up to the DUP/Sinn Fein agenda on the devolution of policing and justice powers [and got been promised the ministry], the Alliance Party voted with those two parties on the second reading of the proposed Department of Justice Bill today. Both the UUP and the SDLP voted against. The Bill was passed anyway. But what was that about community confidence? And what was that about “the other parties have to display equal confidence”. Perhaps Ian Junior said it? Update During the debate the reference by the Alliance Party’s Stephen Farry was to a “common cause” and “a common objective” – “which is to frustrate the devolution of policing and justice.”
