In a phrase that has become dulled with repetition by Sinn Fein leaders and, as in this case the DUP, Peter Robinson recalls the Republican Movement’s alleged peccadilloes, before appealling that we move on without them.Whatever else happens as a result of what seems to have become a massive crisis of confidence in Sinn Fein, we can be fairly sure that no one will be moving on without them, or the DUP for that matter. Even if it means direct rule from Westminster/Whitehall until 2016!
