Impasse continues

Last week we speculated that if Sinn Féin signalled their acceptance of the idea of an Alliance Policing and Justice Minister, it might resolve the current impasse. The next day Gerry Kelly, the Sinn Féin Junior Minister, did precisely that but the impasse continues. The Alliance Party's Naomi Long has said there has been no serious offer from the DUP or Sinn Féin about her party taking the position.

Despite Mr Robinson’s offer to return from his month long holiday in the USA if necessary, it doesn’t look if a break through is likely in the next few weeks.
