“major problems ahead..”

That’s the prediction of the deputy First minister, Sinn Féin’s Martin McGuinness, on what will happen if the devolution of policing and justice powers is not completed by May in his interview with UTV’s Ken Reid – Direct streaming link here [wmv file]. He also denies having that conversation with Jonathan Powell. Of course, the deputy First Minister is still referring to May 2008 as a “deadline” rather than a ‘target date’.. And, as well as pointing to these comments, and these, he states that “It’s a big issue for Sinn Féin.” Indeed. Although he doesn’t predict what the SF leadership will say in response to that Ard Fheis motion..
