Feeney: Let’s get real folks…

I have to say that whilst we were all invited to look towards Stormont last week for the sight of history being made, the thought occurred that the real history was actually being made just across the water in Scotland, when after generations of fervent loyalty to the Labour cause, and ten years of local administration, the electoral finally switched allegiances. The history is not so much about a step towards constitutional independence, but towards a degree of fiscal independence from Westminster, or irather Whitehall. This is one of the key elements missing from Stormont. And ‘thank God’ says Brian Feeney, who is less than impressed with the puffery surrounding our newly invested bosses on the hill. The NIO, he claims, is still king!
