Your sound tracks to the crisis, please?

The first suggestion is Tom Waits’ “What the hell are they building in there?” comes from long term commenter Plum Duff. Is it really all going pear shaped? Is Sinn Fein running scared of an election/revolt/a summer they can’t handle whilst backing the cops? Is it a reverse pass to unsettle Paisley, or did the Doc drop the ball by missing some unnamed verbal sequencing (and what the hell was he supposed to have said?) Is the once seamless message machine of DUP going up in smoke? And is that smoke just the whirring of gears as they shift direction, or is it coming from deeper, down in the boiler room?

More importantly can Tony fix it? Or does he have a friend who can?
