Slugger hears, though it has yet to be confirmed, that Ministers from three parties did not accept the Minutes of the last Executive meeting as a true statement of what passed there. Both Ulster Unionist ministers and Ritchie voted against. Intriguingly, Michelle Gildernew abstained. The rest of Sinn Fein and the DUP stood by them as accurate.
Update: Even more intriguingly, BBC reports that she did vote with SF, UTV reports she didn’t!
– Someone is blowing smoke!
