Paramilitaries retain role in police oversight


I note from today’s Belfast Telegraph that since proconsul Hain rejigged the Policing Board, Dawn Purvis of the PUP/UVF no longer sits on this august body. She has been replaced by party colleague David Rose, so the loyalist paramilitaries will continue to be represented at the heart of policing.

 Also in today’s Tele, the unmissable Gail Walker column. This week Gail has a go at Channel 4 News presenter Jon Snow (59) for allegedly having an affair with a 34-year-old woman. To which I say, so what? It’s not like he picked up some teenage girl from Methody. Still, all’s fair when you’re having a go at the “liberal left”.

    You know, I am a whisker away from making Gail Walker Watch a regular Tuesday feature.
