Mmm, I don't want readers to concentrate on the main thrust of this story. Micro-ethnic cleansing has been a feature of interface life in Ulster for a very long time. What concerned me was the response of the local police commander, Gary White:
'The area will continue to be monitored. However, this is not an issue that can be resolved by policing alone, and officers within the DCU are keen to meet with the local community and other agencies to work together to find a solution.'
Oooh, I wonder who the 'other agencies' are? The Provisionals and the UVF, perhaps? You may be subtle, Mr White. You aren't subtle enough if indeed it is the help of illegal, murdering terrorist organisations that you seek.
