Double dealing in Dublin…

THE pantomime descended into tragedy last week and this evening became a farce. After the Taoiseach’s meeting with Sinn Fein this morning, photographic evidence of IRA decommissioning was suddenly “unworkable”, and apparently off the table to Sinn Fein’s delight. However, after Paisley threatened to boycott future meetings with the Irish Government, Mr Ahern put the issue back on the table. Looks like we’ll have to wait until Ahern’s statement to the Dail on Wednesday to find out what his position actually is.
