Maybe I was unfair to Shaun

I’ve just heard Shaun Woodward saying on Radio 4’s Any Questions that he asked Gordon Brown “some weeks ago” to stay in Northern Ireland “ to complete the peace process” ( I assume he’s 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).
