What did the Assembly ever do for us..?

FORMER peace talks chairman, George Mitchell, has said Northern Ireland’s parliamentarians held their own as political leaders on the world stage while they were in power. “In the short time that they did have authority and engage in self government, I think it’s universally recognised that they did a good job,” he said. The European Court of Justicce would beg to differ. Perhaps I’m being uncharitable by singling out one area where the Assembly failed to act responsibly, so I’m sure Slugger fans will be happy to set the record straight and list the ways in which it made a real difference to their lives. If anyone tells me that hundreds of people are still alive because of it, at least I’ll know that that the NIO really does post on this site.
