Moving on.. again?

Despite the apparent narrative, the likelihood is that having already sidestepped one deadline for revealing their blueprint, the Irish and British governments were not going to delay their much vaunted visit to Armagh tomorrow in response to the murder of an informer, however brutal and violent that murder was. Instead, as Mick suggested in a post on one conspiracy theorist, the competing narratives are left to battle for supremacy… not for the first time where Denis Donaldson is concerned.. and both governments, and at least one political party, have coalesced around a familiar, and particularly relevant in this case, ‘let’s move along now’ line.Whether the various dancers can continue can step away from potentially embarrassing events before those events receive proper scrutiny – and whether that will encourage, or further damage, the prospects for political progress – remains to be seen.. but colour me sceptical.
