Ive just heard Shaun Woodward saying on Radio 4s Any Questions that he asked Gordon Brown some weeks ago to stay in Northern Ireland to complete the peace process ( I assume hes referring to the devolution of justice and policing). As I was having a bit of fun at his expense earlier, I thought it only fair to report this. I still think he’s pretty oily, though).
