Bertie to propose cross board Dail committee…

Looks like Bertie’s taking out an old kite to see if it can still fly. PA: “It is understood the ground breaking proposal set to be put before the Dail would see the formation of a new joint committee on the peace process made up of members of the Irish parliament, but with seats available to Northern Ireland`s Westminster representatives”. No votes, no actual power… and a subject matter that’s about as woolly as they come… so it might just stand a chance of getting through the southern house…
