Speaking on this morning’s Nolan Show, Sir Reg Empey made a good point about the DUP boycott of Stormont.
By making Northern Ireland unworkable, they are helping to destroy the very thing they claim to hold most dear.
Amongst my friends, there is extreme ambivalence to Stormont coming back. The consensus is Stormont does not work and has never worked.
There is absolute clarity that reunification is coming. It is just what happens in the interim period that matters.
Does Northern Ireland just become a failed state? Is 10 am too early to drown our sorrows?
I help to manage Slugger by taking care of the site as well as running our live events. My background is in business, marketing and IT. My politics tend towards middle-of-the-road pragmatism, I am not a member of any political party. Oddly for a member of the Slugger team, I am not that interested in daily politics, preferring to write about big ideas in society. When not stuck in front of a screen, I am a parkrun Run Director.
