Paisley: SF decision a step forward
Sinn Fein's decision to get involved in policing is a step forward, the Rev Ian Paisley has acknowledged.
But the Democratic Unionist leader insisted the republicans have to deliver co-operation with the police on the ground if there is to be political progress at Stormont.
He also stated his belief that Assembly Elections scheduled for March 7 would go ahead.
The North Antrim MP said: "We have made headway. I wouldn't deny that. If you had told me 20 years ago that they (republicans) would be repudiating the very fundamentals of Sinn Fein/IRA, I would have laughed but that is what they have done.
