Solid Proposals by the SDLP

The SDLP has unveiled a nine-month plan to scale down security in Ireland's north.

The document calls for the demolition of British army watchtowers and the de-fortification of PSNI stations. It also urges the British government to give the PSNI primacy in intelligence gathering and to drop plans to hand the lead role to MI5. The SDLP also wants proposals brought forward for the phased introduction of unarmed police officers.

These are very encouraging plans by the SDLP. It is high time the British government scaled down its war machine in Ireland's north and started to respect the rights of the Irish people in the North. The SDLP deserves credit for these solid proposals.
