Here we go again..

The BBC report that our beloved leader the Secretary of State for Wales and Northern Ireland, Peter Hain, has announced that there will be talks in October away from the glare of the troublesome public.. *ahem* And the Prime Minister [whoever that is at the time – Ed] and the Taoiseach will be in attendance. There is one good quote from Hain in the report, “Critical negotiations will take place outside of Northern Ireland. We need to concentrate minds. I think it’s much better to get away from the day-to-day issues and daily pressures that face all politicians.” Indeed… Now, where to send them?.. Hmmm.. Updated according to RTÉ “a location in Scotland” Ermm? Further detail on Peter Hain’s comments here
One additional point.. This does mean that the second session of the temporary assembly – due to begin next week – is, in effect, redundant. Not that all parties were going to participate… again..
