Re: Democracy at work....
Without getting too political, I can understand Republican politicians not wanting to go to Westminster and pledge alliegance to the Crown, but refusing to attend your own Parliament (Republican or Loyalist) because you don't agree with/hate the opposition is beyond belief. I don't have a particular liking for Paisley, Adams, McGuinness or the like, they're all a bunch of ex-terrorists and nutters but the whole point is that they have to start talking and working with each other to lay the path so that the next generation of NI politicians can make real progress.
And while we're on the subject, I guess the only thing that's stopping David Trimble being knighted is the fact that it would p*ss off the Republicans. He always shone out as a beacon of reason when there seemed so little hope.
