    Default policing vindication of sinn féin peace strategy

    Anyone hear Matt Baggott's Radio Ulster interview? He is the new Chief Constable in the Six Counties. He comes across as a really sincere guy. He was selected by SF reps on the policing board of the Six Counties.

    Interview with Matt Baggott:
    BBC News - Dissidents 'like London street gangs' - Matt Baggott

    Crime in Six Counties falls every single month from Oct2009:
    BBC News - Figures show decrease in Northern Ireland crime

    Road deaths at 50 year low
    BBC News - NI has first month without road death since 1986

    And now of course in the last week policing and justice powers are voted to be devolved to the six county government.

    All of these dividends have followed in the light of Sinn Féin's policing support, a fundamental part of the peace strategy

    Sinn Féin deserve credit for this.

    BBC - BBC Radio Ulster Programmes - Seven Days

    For those of you who can access this, Six County Chief Constable Matt Bagott's interview is on the above link.

    He seems a very sincere guy, and Alex Maskey of Sinn Féin helped appoint him.

    I believe it is a vindication of the 'Republican' and 'Loyalist' 'stop committing crimes' strategy. Novel, really.

    Glad you agree that the peace strategy is working. And that list is a nice read to see such things have dropped in %, happy days.

    A man was shot in Meigh, co Armagh last night by 'robbers'. The strange thing is that there are claims that he and his brother had bested some 'good republicans' the previous night in a fight. Coincidental, isn't it? Maybe kneecapppings simply have a different title now.

    Report what you know about this criminal behaviour to the police.

    Ach now, picador, sure some of those involved (in the fight, that is)might well be much closer to the police and dpp members than I am.
