Negotiations: next big date

The 12th February has been named as the day for large scale meetings between the two governments and all the NI parties. However David Ford, leader of the Alliance party, warned against the inherent dangers of the favoured bilateral pattern for continued negotiation:

“If these meetings are going to be any value, we simply have to get away from hidden side deals being made with individual parties. For that reason, I would call for the Prime Minister and Taoiseach to co-chair a round table meeting the following day at Hillsborough to allow everyone to take stock of the process so far.”
