“The talks are likely to stretch into September..”

Secretary of State Shaun Woodward has invited the political parties to talks next month on how to advance the controversial Eames/ Bradley proposals on dealing with the legacy of the Troubles.

Good luck with that one, Shaun.. And don’t forget about those “patently inadequate” safeguards, nevermind whether all the groups involved will actually participate.. Although, I haven’t been able to find confirmation of those invites and the quotes, such as they are, appear to come from this Public Service Review article.
