Politics Show newsletter…

One useful thing the Politics Show has initiated is Jim Fitzpatrick’s newsletter, which gives you a heads up on what’s happening on Sunday. Reg Empey is his guest this week: “It’s a year since Sir Reg took over from David, now Lord, Trimble. So, how has he fared? Well, Gareth Gordon has been out speaking to the grassroots and the verdict is mixed”. Other Beeb output has Hain putting some pressure on the DUP over the November deadline, and Sinn Fein over policing on Let’s Talk. He’s on Inside Politics between 1pm and 2pm tomorrow too.

Mick is founding editor of Slugger. He has written papers on the impacts of the Internet on politics and the wider media and is a regular guest and speaking events across Ireland, the UK and Europe. Twitter: @MickFealty
