Someone has been leaking NI Executive briefing papers to the BBC about the multi-sports stadium at the Maze site. Could it be the mild-mannered young-Earther, and former Sports Minister, the DUP’s Edwin Poots? In the Assembly yesterday he was asking some potentially awkward questions of the Office of the First and deputy First Ministers [see below the fold] – official record here. BBC NI political editor Mark Devenport discussed the “faithful and loyal member of the Democratic Unionist Party”s new role on the back-benches on Stormont Today last night, as well as that leaked briefing paper.

Deputy First Minister Martin McGuinness fielded those questions in the Assembly
And BBC NI political editor Mark Devenport on “strange bed-fellows” and leaked briefing papers.
