“wants to put his seal of approval on devolution..”

More media management ahead.. Out-going US President George Bush wasn’t able to make the investment conference, he sent a video instead, but the BBC are reporting that he will stop by in June. The White House website tells us that the presidential travel plans for Europe are set for June 9 to June 16. And, interestingly, according to UTV’s Ken Reid, by then Peter Robinson should be the new Northern Ireland First Minister.. with a special sitting of the Assembly “being arranged for the afternoon of Thursday June 5.” Which means that we might get to see what the difference is between then and now.. There’s one other point to note from the BBC report

The details of the presidential visit are still being worked out. However, it is understood that Mr Bush wants to put his seal of approval on devolution.

Well, that would be partial devolution..
