Hearts and Minds: “If the will is there we can deliver on Policing and Justice…”

Hearts and Minds… Pretty good panel discussion at the top of the programme.. Alex Maskey puts in a good performance… things not quite as bad as people have may have thought… Ian Junior places the blame for the failure of OFmdFM on Basil McCrea… Alex Attwood blames everyone (including his own party)… Stephen Farry suggests rather sensibly that there needs to be a removal of ‘poison from the system’… A real change of tone compared to what we’ve been hearing in the last few weeks…
