The SDLP are reacting negatively to the Armagh Initiative. They are demanding the recalled Assembly have powers . This seems an about turn as they rejected such positive suggestions when they were made by the DUP and UUP.
The SDLP went to the “right” of Sinn Fein over the proposed OTR legislation, forcing republicans into an embarrassing climbdown. Sinn Fein has agreed to participate in the reconvened Assembly already so is the SDLP doing the same again by playing hardball?
