The sniping at Trimble continues as Sammy Wilson of the DUP suggests, “Trimble and his political allies repeated time and time again that the Agreement provided the Government with the powers to exclude those who did not genuinely give up violence. Four years on, he is now admitting that those powers do not exist and need to be introduced”.

Father Des Wilson hits Trimble from the ‘other side’, pouring scorn on the idea that he may resign. The Belfast Telegraph suggests that the problem is one not simply for Unionists, but for all the pro-agreement parties.

A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
