In light of the information from Sinn Fein at their Dublin press conference and the subsequent statement from Denis Donaldson, it is time for nationalist Ireland to grow a spine and say "Ya basta".

Confirmation that the PSNI staged a coup d'etat in 2002 and have continued to spy on Republicans should be enough to spur the immediate resignation from the Policing Board of Vice Chairman Denis Bradley and all of the members of the SDLP District Policing Partnerships who naively placed their faith in the PSNI.

The SDLP have maintained that their engagement with the PSNI has influenced change. They are wrong.

This latest incident confirms the disregard the PSNI has for democracy.

Nationalists and Republicans need to send a clear message to Blair -

"Come back to us when you have the problem sorted"

Until then stuff your talks.
