RUC are no role models
I see ex-RUC supermo Ronnie Flanagan is being sent to Iraq to attempt to deal with the policing crisis there. One of Ronnie's responsibilities will be to tackle the growing concerns about the infiltration of the country's police force by insurgents. Nothing like making the man feel at home since of course during his time in charge of the RUC, Special Branch enjoyed a cosy little relationship with UVF "insurgents". The last thing Iraq needs is a corrupt secterian police force dedicated to serving one side of the community while murdering those who they are supposed to protect but with ex-RUC men in charge that's probably want they are going to get.
