Laura! Was I supposed to call someone?

Having finished his Thanksgiving burger (must have been the size of Texas), George Bush has, finally, spared Gerry Adams’ blushes and got someone to find that phone number – although the call is reported more like a monologue than a conversation.Despite the optimistic comments from Mitchel McLauglin that are also in the report, Adams claims to have promoted the idea of further White House intervention “I told him that we may need help at the White House to deliver”.

But, as predicted yesterday by Mark Devenport, certain murals weren’t mentioned, although I don’t think diplomacy had much to do with their omission.

No mention either of Sinn Féin’s recent call for US military planes to be barred from Shannon Airport

I would have thought it was a perfect opportunity to have a chat about that particular Sinn Féin policy.
