Google Plus Hangout on the Queens visit and ‘that’ handshake…

Despite the seeming slightness of the issue Martin McGuinness’s handshake with the Queen has probably inspired more political analysis in the last four days than the whole of Northern Irish politics has since the elections last May. So, for those who can, we’re inviting you to a Google Plus Hangout (a sort of a video chatroom) on the subject.

There’s space for up to nine other people to take part, but you should be able to get a look if I can figure out how to make it public…  If you are not sure what a Hang out is, try this… You can pick it up from my G+ homepage here. It won’t be live until 4pm, and it may take a bit longer if there are technical difficulties…

My role will be purely as chair… providing we get enough in there to have a discussion… you should be able to watch without having your own G+ account, but you will one if you want to take part in the chat room…
