Everywhere but the Assembly..

While the Assembly debated the motion on the Paul Quinn murder yesterday, the BBC’s Mark Devenport tells us that his colleague Gareth Gordon spotted a clean shaven Alex Maskey at Belfast City Airport last night – apparently on his way to London “to brief MPs, representatives of London Embassies and the media on the current situation in the political process, and in particular the issue of Policing and Justice and the transfer of powers to the Assembly.” Meanwhile, Sinn Féin have announced that the party leadership, including Gerry Adams, “will be in Leinster House tomorrow discussing the transfer of power of policing and justice in the North.” Alternatively they could try talking to the Assembly Committee inquiring into those matters.. Or, perhaps, they could ask the Taoiseach how much ‘slippage’ he has in mind?
