Political non-developments…

THE British Irish Inter-Parlimentary Body meets in Wales today, where political developments in NI will be discussed. Over the weekend, Bertie Ahern said that while fundamentals must remain, he could countenance some changes to the operation of the Agreement.

Expect words like ‘limbo’ and ‘drift’ in various newspaper columns if the politicians don’t get a chance to reject something by Friday, although an optimistic Dermot Ahern, who’s meeting the Secretary of State on Wednesday, suggests it could be closer to the end of the month.

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.
