“Clearly it was a mistake because it caused so much controversy…”

Gerry Kelly’s on HardTalk tomorrow (you can get here online H/T Kathleen). I was struck by his view that the suggestion in the Eames-Bradley report that £12,000 should be paid to all victims was a mistake, because it caused controversy. That’s code for making it too hot to handle inside the OFMDFM Castle. Fear of controversy is a problem more broadly… But in Northern Ireland’s cramped manditory coalition, it would seem to be the kiss of death

    Mick,
    I see you give a hat tip to Kathleen.
    I notice she hasn’t posted in a while. I hope she hasn’t been driven away by personal abuse like Miss Fitz.
