Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Stormont. Aye, there's the rub.
The fact that it was not restored during the period of a Con/DUP Westminster majority is proof that the DUP doesn't want it. Now they have less leverage, but can still refuse it... Leading mechanically to direct rule in November, if I have understood correctly.

It's hard to see the DUP in anything other than a wrecking role, if the Ireland economic zone goes through (as it must). Hard to see how either a Conservative or a Labour government could buy them off.

Troubles ahead...
