Hearts and Minds: Blair on the Belfast Agreement, and after…

There’s been a deluge of stuff coming out on the anniversary of the Belfast Agreement, some of it thought provoking, some of it less so. Hearts and Minds will carry a lengthy interview with Tony Blair tonight. The BBC1 version comes after the Golf – at midnight or beyond, but the BBC2 version will go out at 7.30pm is usual. Slugger understands that Noel Thompson quizzes him, after his former Chief of Staff, Jonathan Powell attempted to dish some dirt on the so-called ‘DUP back channel’. He also talks about Adams’ relationship with the IRA being a bit more complicated than British intelligence would have said.
