I had suggested it might be time for another educational set-piece.. Today the DUP’s Mervyn Storey and Sinn Féin’s John O’Dowd duly obliged – their re-appearance on Stormont Live is below the fold along with an interesting contribution from the UUP’s Basil McCrea. The occasion was a leaked memo from the Northern Ireland Education Minister, Sinn Féin’s Caitríona Ruane, ahead of Thursday’s scheduled NI Executive meeting. For starters though, a copy of the leaked document ended up with BBC NI political editor Mark Devenport [and which “dishonourable person” was responsible for that? – Ed]. Mark’s not taking any bets on it getting much further..
The DUP’s Mervyn Storey and Sinn Féin’s John O’Dowd discuss the NI Education Minister’s leaked proposals. Again.
Last word, for now, from the UUP’s Basil McCrea
