While Sinn Féin were issuing statements ahead of meeting the Prime Minister on devolving policing and justice powers, the DUP’s Peter Robinson waited until after he had met Gordon Brown. As the BBC reports
Mr Robinson said Sinn Fein were doing nothing to resolve outstanding issues. He said there were three remaining issues which needed to be agreed. They were identifying the name of the Justice Minister, outlining what their powers would be and solving the issue of parading. The DUP leader was speaking after meeting the Prime Minister, Gordon Brown. Mr Robinson claimed Sinn Fein were refusing to come to meetings and he said there would be no date for devolution until the outstanding issues had been resolved. He accused Republicans of huffing and said they should “roll up their sleeves” and get on with it.
