I was chatting to a security bod at a crown court today. He showed me a letter he'd received from PSNI. They are investigating deaths during "the troubles". They wanted to talk to this chap about a death in 1971 - over 40 years ago! From the wording of the letter the implication seemd to be (or at least the inference that I drew) was that they intended to look at all deaths during the troubles. WTF is going on? Are they really going to investigate deaths that are over 40 years old that occurred in an IS setting in NI? Which have presumably been the subject of reports at the time, and which do not appear to be the subject of criminal complaints now? And people are paying their taxes to fund this? Rant over.
