The optimistic Secretary of State…

for Wales etc, Peter Hain has announced that “[He has] spoken to the Speaker this afternoon about convening an early session of the Assembly on Monday morning and the Programme for Government Committee will meet at midday.”Apparently, according to the NIO statement

He said: “The business of democracy will continue to ensure that we get the St Andrews Agreement implemented, with Sinn Fein signing up to policing and the rule of law as they’ve committed themselves to do, and at the same time the DUP committing itself to power-sharing in a devolved Government.”[added emphasis]

Riiight… good luck with that.. and the other, for that matter..
