The Chief Constable of the PSNI has attended his first Sinn Fein conference.

Matt Baggott had to enter the ‘Belfast: A City of Equals in an Island of Equals’ event at the Europa Hotel through a side door after a group of loyalist protestors heckled Sinn Fein members as they arrived.

UUP leader Mike Nesbitt pulled out of the conference, at which he was to give a keynote address, after John O’Dowd’s remarks earlier this year on shared future negotiations.

When the Education Minister was challenged on television as to why other parties aside from the DUP and Sinn Fein had not been included in the talks he said ‘So what?’.
