LOW POINT
Some are confused; some bemused; and some of us are just incredulous that given the rioting resulting from recent Historic Enquiries raids on northern loyalist homes, the Police Service of Northern Ireland seems to have been prepared for peace but not for war when launching a similar raid into the Rathcoole area this week, one of the UVF’s “safe seats”. When they sent in a couple of local cops, in a car of course, who was it they thought was hijacking up to 12 tons of Ulsterbus in order to beat the driver and burn it? Igglepiggle or the Milky Bar Kid? So when it came to trundling a taxpayer’s helicopter into the Western Mourne Mountains also this week and injuring several of its officers, few of us were surprised that it had failed to identify the pattern set only last week by the occupants of a private machine in precisely the same conditions, ploughing into the same Western Mourne Mountains and rendering the same occupants stone dead. There are many reasons I am glad I am not a serving officer with the PSNI although two will do: being the target for a loony fringe dissident – and being the laughingstock of the combined population - something we all appear to be agreed on. The good thing for hillwalkers in the Mournes is that we now know there are no gunmen in these hills, because if there were, the PSNI would not have gone in. (Check out its reasons for not going in to protect life and limb at the Rathcoole debacle.) In the Mourne Mountains this weekend, take a tin hat with you. Who knows what could fall out of the sky...., but you can guess.
