Fianna Fail/SDLP courtship in ‘lovers tiff’?

Fianna Fáil is considering extending its consultation period about a possible move into politics in Northern Ireland. Having essentially ‘asked the SDLP out’, and the SDLP having batted its collective eyelids, it seems that FF are sensing that the SDLP are having doubts. The truth is that the SDLP is a very loose collection of capitalists, socialists and others with very little uniting them beyond their broad nationalist outlook. Any move into another party is bound to be painful but might it be worth it if it leads to a rosier future together.
