Stormont crisis; DUP walks

The DUP has pulled out of the Executive. Presumably this is stage one in the process towards suspension. Tony Blair calls for calm. David Trimble tells Donaldson to be quiet:

“Mr Trimble also said his anti-Agreement party colleague, Lagan Valley MP Jeffrey Donaldson, was not helping and a period of silence from him would be welcome.”

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.
