Will they start talking on Monday….

It ain’t over, till that big fat lady sings… Interesting snippet from Channel Four tonight… Brian Walker reckons that the British will shift the terms of its ‘Dissolution or devolution’ ultimatum, if the DUP will talk directly with Sinn Fein, and if Sinn Fein agrees. He doesn’t think that any of the players have a choice, if they are to have some credible egress from the current impasse… That would buy us (as if we really wanted it) another six week extension to the Process™.
