Negotiations: close to substance of deal…

Interesting and thoughtful analysis from someone on the Independent staff. In particular it notes the presence of a group of academics last week who “…were amazed that parties should get so near agreement and fail to make the final connection”.

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.
