Stormont spy case collapses...

Bad news for the PSNI. The case against the so-called Stormont spy ring, the impetus for the collapse of the local devolved Assembly, has itself collapsed in court. See the BBC News site for the latest details.

How strange!! All the Unionist furore all the psni statements and private briefing to damage these mens creditibility all for nothing.

And the TV directed raid by heavily armed PSNI men and their 20-30 landrovers, all for what.

How can anyone expect Nationalists to truely believe that the PSNI works in an impartial fashion.

Maybe now the Psni should listen to one of the few within the Nationalist community who gaves credence to this force, Alastair McDonnell who recently stated that the Psni was starting to lose the support from the Nationalist quarter which supports it.

Political policing, it hasn`t gone away you know.

Now remind me who robbed the Northern Bank!!!!!

Ahh, yes,...that would be the good ol’ PSNI that we are all to put our trust in.

So, there was no Stormont spy ring.

It was all a concoction of the police and media?

My ,my, whoever would have thunk it? Should we ask for an apology that they have been engaged in blatant political policing? Should all those unionist politicians and others who so happily bleated about republican guilt come out now and apologise? Will they now admit that the basis of them pulling out of Stormont was fallacious?

The PSNI tried to save David Trimble’s bacon. It’s as simple as that. It didn’t work. We now have had years of political stagnation as a result as well as the DUP crowned as the largest unionist party. So, all in all, I’d say the raid was a success… Public relations as policing, the 6 county way…

Are we still to believe that the PSNI has reformed? This just adds more weight to the argument that policing and justice powers be transferred immediately to local control.

I see also that this story is tucked away from public view...a bit different from the media circus that appeared at Stormont on the day. Funny that…

After several years of “over-hype” by the media regarding the “acheivements” of the Chief Constable, it will be interesting to see how this farce will re-define media and public perceptions of Hugh Orde. Let’s not forget it was Orde who admitted afterwards that the public ‘storming’ of Stormont by the PSNI during their searches had been a mistake. Well that is but small fry compared to the collapse of this entire enquiry. This is an enquiry that brought down a government. Somebody will have to pay for this.
