The bearable lightness of North Southery

Brian Feeney talks us through the significance of the non events of the last three weeks, and reckons it’s 1-0 to Nationalists courtesy of the “no show” of government proposals, courtesy of a veto from the Republic’s government. The significance he argues is long term rather than short term and demonstrates the degree to which southern involvment in Northern Ireland’s affairs is now accepted across the political board. North Southery is now a game for all of Northern Ireland’s querulous political families.
