Law and Order

The UUP have tabled a motion noting the levels of ‘Republican activity and violence’ and condemning such activity and supporting the rule of law, etc. This initially looked like a clever ruse by the Ulster Unionists to make Sinn Fein appear in the Chamber and endorse the police through gritted teeth – although in reality most would probably have avoided the debate or turned up and ignored the motion. The SDLP have tabled an amendment to broaden the motion and in reality everyone will probably turn up, join hands, and condemn the troublemakers.
