Over the last few days whilst we have all been engrossed in all things electoral a couple of somewhat controversial announcements have occurred with relatively little notice.

On Wednesday just before the polls opened the PPS announced it was dropping all charges against flag protest leader Willie Frazer some 15 months after his initial arrest. Meanwhile on Thursday OFMDFM announced that John Larkin had been reappointed as attorney general.

    Larkin is only getting a two-year sentence. His re-appointment is a rare exmple of DUP/Sinn Fein agreement in OFMDFM. One gets a Catholic the other a stern Christian.
