Less heat, more light needed

No doubt the current flurry of activity with Tony Blair – or whoever’s availableBertie Ahern and Ian Paisley is intended to create a sense of momentum in advance of the ‘imminent’, or not so ‘imminent’, statement from the Provisional Movement.. a momentum that the media seem more than happy to be carried along by.. but I get the distinct impression that less heat and more light would be a better way to go about it. Now, of course, with the recent “not secret at all” meetings between Bertie Ahern and Gerry Adams, the same cast is once more assembled... Update Although Fianna Fáil Senator Martin Mansergh said that he is hopeful of ‘some important developments’ in the North by the end of this Oireachtas session at the end of the month, RTE is reporting that Bertie Ahern has said that he believes the IRA is more likely to make known its intentions during July or August.. Still waiting then.
