  • Extended description

    Eddie McAteer talks about the future for the RUC in light of the criticism in the Cameron Report and feels that they can have no future and describes them as one of the chief ingredients in the "hell-broth" that has been bubbling in Northern Ireland for so long. McAteer feels that a new police force, which is acceptable to all of the people, is required to defuse the situation quickly. Despite this, McAteer is pleased with the report which he feels highlights the inadequacies of the Stormont government.
