I’m putting together a presentation of Northern Ireland devolution within the UK context. It’s fascinating to me that whilst we have had a long history of demanding some form of ‘home rule’, both the Scots and the Welsh were comparatively lukewarm, yet they have been up and running, making decisions and developing ever fitter civil society, whilst we’ve been talking about why we’re not talking. A reminder of the journey so far.
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.
