I was stopped at a police vehicle check point tonight, not two miles from my house, while going into town.
A real, blue lights flashing, landrovers blocking the road, old fashioned 'excuse me ma'am, do you have any identification?' genuine security vehicle check point.
It's been years, years since I've even seen one, never mind been stopped at one. So long, in fact, that I forgot to dim my lights and look out my licence in advance of my turn at the red baton.
Obviously they're expecting something big and nasty in Belfast ....
