This is ground control to Major Ian….

Friday’s post ‘Libya and irony…important lessons’ missed the biggest irony of all. Whoops…

While the DUP condemned the decision to send PSNI officers to Libya to train its police as “totally inappropriate and offensive", it was revealed that Ian Paisley Jnr was among those who’d signed off on the decision. According to Mr Paisley, sending local police officers on the Libyan jaunt was good for gathering intelligence.

Yet he didn’t pass on the intelligence to his own party leadership that PSNI officers were providing support to a State that had once been one of the biggest suppliers of weaponry to the Provisional IRA. You couldn’t make it up.
