Jim Allister the latest prophet

How fascinating to see Jim Allister paying into rising expectations of a deal. He characterises J&P thus:

I must, therefore, warn unionists to prepare for a catastrophic roll-over by the DUP on meeting Sinn Féin’s strategic demand of ending British control of
policing and justice – the two most potent symbols of sovereignty in any nation.

So Jim has been an integrationist all along! But take a look at Scotland Jim, with its separate legal system lasting several centuries before the SNP devolved government. Scotland was still in the UK when I last looked . And note too that the NI judicial system peaks in the UK Supreme Court in Parliament Square Westminster, and that the Tories are pledging to introduce a Sovereignty bill to reaffirm the supremacy of Parliament he longs to sit in. So relax Jim, life is good.
