SF claims it had secret channel to DUP…

Looks like Sinn Fein is prepared to throw the kitchen sink at the DUP to get them to concede the devolution of policing and justice powers before power sharing… This time they have ‘revealed’ (without revealing who, when, or for how long) that there was an ‘independent verifier’, outside the British government, who acted as a secret channel and took messages from one party to the other. A DUP spokesman denied the report. More here. One to keep an eye on.
