Creating the Good Economy Live Blog…

The cuts are coming, no matter who says what in Stormont. To turn over what that means, NICVA have convened a range of leading commentators from business, politics, trade unions and the voluntary and community and social enterpise sectors will be joining David McWilliams and Will Hutton in the Stormont Hotel.

I’ll be live tweeting, audiobooing along with a Star Chamber of other bloggers including Ivor Whitten of Hand of History, Geoff McGimpsey of Open Unionism. I’m hoping Mooch will be joining us too…

MOst of the content in this live blog will be generated through Twitter… If you want to follow the proceedings (and participate) today follow the #NICVA hashtag… And keep an eye out both here on Slugger and on the other blogs for follow up content over the next few days…

It’s a rare opportunity to talk about the real politics of the new austerity in both a UK and an island context…
