Peace and Goodwill… negotiating up to, through and beyond…

The most senior member of the DUP that the Westminster Hour could find to speak against the party line was Councillor Jack McKee, a consistent opponent of sharing power with Sinn Fein. In the meantime, public negotiation stances continue as obstructively as ever. Sinn Fein sticks stubbornly to its call for a date for devolution of policing and justice, before an Ard Fheis to ask its membership to support the police. So now the DUP wants a downgrade in the status of the minister handling the Justice portfolio. And the British have removed local oversight of ‘national security’ to MI5. Hmmm… Has anyone any idea of who is actually winning?
