The Politicians are not the problem in the occupied six counties of the North it has and always will be the RUC/PSNI – Just look at how they treated the two journalists who exposed collusion in the Loughinisland massacre
Police in the North have urged politicians there to settle their differences.
The North was left with drift and indecision following suspension of the devolved institutions, Mr Lindsay told delegates attending the Police Federation for Northern Ireland (PFNI) annual conference in Co. Down. He said: “The job of repairing fences and getting back to legislating and running Northern Ireland should trump all else.
“If politicians are to rebuild public trust and confidence, then they will have to move from narrow, sectional demands and instead consider the greater societal good.
“Settle your differences inside Stormont and not outside it.
It’s time to end shrill megaphone voices for what passes as local political engagement.
“Deliver what people want and what policing and society needs.”
The number of serving police officers in Northern Ireland has declined from 7,195 full-time equivalent in March 2010 to 6,643 in November 2018, the organisation has said.
Mr Lindsay said the under-car bomb attack was an act worthy of contempt.
He added: “They are bankrupt, heartless, maniacs. Politically irrelevant and deserving only of our condemnation.”
