Over the past number of days we have seen two members of RUC/PSNI British crown forces being appointed top positions within An Garda Síochána. Paula Hillman has been appointed Assistant Commissioner and Stephen McCauley has been appointed Superintendent.
While we know An Garda Síochána has always been nothing more than the colonialist offshoot of British rule in Ireland, these appointments represent realignment and strengthening of direct control of An Garda Siochana by British Intelligence. These RUC/PSNI figures not only have a history of collusion with loyalist death squads and the covering up of state sponsored massacres, they are also still bound by British laws and continue to operate alongside British intelligence services. While these appointments are unsurprising, they further highlight the wider strategic intentions of British intelligence and the neo-colonial reality of An Garda Síochána.
