Interesting kite flying from Brian Feeney this week. He reckons that the DUP and the PDs were the intended targets of Dermot Ahern’s remarks that if the IRA were to decommission they might well find themselves in government in Dublin.
It’s a dynamic he thinks has further to go:
“In due course also the DUP will find it in their interest to put out feelers to parties in the Republic to support certain arguments and positions in the Dail. If not, they’re going to find northern and southern SF ministers singing off the same hymn-sheet. So maybe the DUP and the PDs have more in common that you think”.
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.
