No interim solution in sight

The Newsletter encapsulates the stage of development, or rather non development, of the Peace Process™. To their reckoning it is the fault of both Nationalist parties for holding out for a complete deal, when the DUP and UUP would only be happy to run with a shadow Assembly – “the only viable prognosis” it argues. Sinn Fein puts the impasse down to the DUP’s unwillingness to talk to it directly. Meanwhile (whatever the truth of either of those views), our own local lawmakers leave the harsher decision-making to “unaccountable Direct Rule ministers”.
