"Efforts continue" Part 681…

THE DUP and Sinn Fein are in London, as efforts continue to restore the political institutions.

  • The Renegade

    “Efforts continue”- surely for that to happen, effort must be made. DUP and SF can hardly be said to be making efforts to restore power-sharing under the terms of the GFA

  • Butterknife

    Stop their saleries, that will focus their minds.

  • Ciaran

    More bluster and charades! all in an attempt to hide the fact that none of them want back in before the hard decisions are taken over Water Rates, Civil Service Reform and the like. Our local incumbants are happier if its left to Labours 2nd raters to do the work for them.

    If they won’t make a deal, stop the MLA salaries and put the money into Water Services to keep our rates down, at least some good would come of it!

    The DUP and SF will hang on for as long as possible in the hope that we reach the elections and they can recall the ‘increasing our Mandates regardin the Agreement’ jargon for another go at the ballot boxes – will the boy cry wolf?

  • John McIlveen

    Very pessimistic folks!!
    Lets give this last push a chance and see what happens, this could all potentially be bigger than the GFA, so lets hold off until the big fat lady sings till we roll out the negativity!!

    What happened to Murphy’s promise to close down the Assembly in the autumn if no agreement were reached?

    It’s autumn. No agreement has been reached. Why is the Assembly still there?

    Unless the IRA murdering scum totally surrender and apologise to all they murdered and maimed these talks are going nowhere.

    The UUP treachery and hunger for office will not be repeated by those God fearing loyal Ulstermen leading the Protestant Nation.

    We are on the march.

    ONE UNITED ULSTER PROTESTANT AND lOYALIST VOICE.
    A force for the better.
    NOT ONE INCH.
    NOT ONE BLADE OF GRASS.

    A PARTY FOR ME,
    IS THE DUP.

  • Cahal
  • Moderate Unionist

    Humourous Yes,

    But I am beginning to think he believes it…. and he may not be alone!
