There’s no justice, there’s just us

According to Sinn Féin, the creation of a Northern Ireland Department of Justice took a step closer this week with the Assembly’s “endorsement” of the creation of the said department.

Sinn Féin’s Alex Maskey said the debate on Assembly departments was a further milestone on the road to devolving policing and justice powers.

Mr Maskey added that the point-scoring of the unionist parties had failed and that the Assembly was soon to be in a position to progress the issue.

Such positioning could be seen by a cynic as Sinn Féin trying to prove that entering power-sharing was worthwhile in advance of the European elections.
