That officers meeting still going on….

Our understanding is that the following MLAs are still in the crisis meeting over ‘the Robinson Affair’… Stephen Moutray, David Simpson, Willie McCrea, Jonthan Craig, Ian Paisley Senior, Arlene Foster, Sammy Wilson, Nigel Dodds, Edwin Poots and Duncan Morrow. There may be others, but that’s what we know about… There’s likely to be a fair mix of opinion in there… They’ll need to come to some fairly robust conclusions… I doubt the devolution of Policing and Justice is taking a top priority…
