Belated admissions from both of Northern Ireland’s top politicians…

Things I thought I’d never hear in public… 1, Peter Robinson admitting that unionists were too slow on accepting power sharing; and Martin McGuinness admitting that he and his party dobbed Trimble in with those unfulfilled promises to decommission IRA weapons before the November 2003 Assembly election…

Nice to hear it, finally, from the horses’ mouths… now the danger’s passed…
