Still short of a comprehensive agreement…

The late (great?) Vincent Hannah once described the peace process as ‘forever dancing on the brink’. Jim Gibney believes the IRA is almost ready to move on: “The leadership of armed republicanism has outlined the circumstances in which it will encourage its activists and supporters to employ purely peaceful strategies this side of British withdrawal”. Martin McGuinness hinted on Newsnight last night that the Westminster elections may see some renewed efforts.

    “We are potentially on the cusp of a new set of political circumstances in this country which we have never before experienced.”
    Problem is we just seem to get stuck on this damn cusp. I agree with some parts of the article, the IRA offer in December should not have been taken lightly and I don’t beleive it was. I think it was just too scary for the DUP and now after all that has happened they are feeling vindicated and that offer has been removed from the table.

    Damn Cusp strikes again!

    Is this the Cusp Final?

    Could be Henry – I think it might go to a Replay, Extra Time and Penalties. Although that depends on whether or not some parties can stop with all the own goals.
