Not so "imminent" then..

After Peter Hain’s reported comments on Sunday – although I’ll just note that, Hain’s optimism aside, the emphasis on the timing seemed to be added by the BBC – the Belfast Telegraph reports that the Irish and British governments are urging caution on the timing of the expected statement from the Provisional Movement.. caution on the content is, of course, a given.. Hmm.. What would Vladimir say?

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.
