“We do have equality and we do have power-sharing..”

Stormont Live returned today and the main studio talking point was the will they/won’t they Executive meeting.. and the apparently related topic of the devolution of policing and justice powers. First up were two Northern Ireland Executive Ministers – the SDLP’s Margaret Ritchie and the UUP’s Reg Empey. The co-ordinated outrage came across as a bit little forced..

More combative, with each other, were the next two MLAs – the DUP’s Peter Weir and, once again, Sinn Féin’s John O’Dowd.
