The actual Sinn Fein ministerial team…

Here’s the detail on Sinn Fein’s ministerial team. The ringer seems to be Michelle Gildernew. With the DUP preparing Arlene Foster, it would seem that Sinn Fein are keen to give their MP a fighting chance of some decent headlines before the next Westminster electoral ding dong. Gerry Kelly (a former IRA bomber) is moved from policing and justice spokesman to junior minister attached to the Office of First and Deputy First Minister.
