Belfast: “capital of procrastination..”

Great quote from Peter Hain on BBC Wales, via Seamus McKee this morning. The other great soundbite he had to offer was that it was “either devolution or dissolution”. Aha, the great game of political chicken continues. But it seems, if Mark Devenport is right, that he may actual dilute what is required today (primarily from the DUP) to ‘mood music’ so that it is weak enough to let said party off with a general intention to take up their posts in January, rather than naming their prospective candidates for First Minister and Deputy First Minister.
