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.
