Hearts and Minds has Jim Alistair and one of Sinn Fein’s coolest performers, Mary Lou McDonald each fielding some of the key issues that will dominate politics over the next six months. Allister lays out some of the keynotes from his party’s 64 page dossier handed into Downing Street – “there is no going back to the agreement of December 2004”. For her part McDonald plays every screw ball very deftly.
