It wasn’t so long ago that you might be able to recall the comment which was made by Sinn Fein MLA and education minister, John O’Dowd. He retorted “so what” in reply to complaints from the UUP and Alliance that they had been kept in the dark about shared future Government plans.
On Sunday you may – or may not – of seen Sunday Politics. In the episode John O’Dowd was probed about Peter Robinson’s letter from America which outlined the DUPs U-turn on the Maze. O’Dowd complained that Peter Robinson’s letter did not “help the situation” and he should of brought the Maze issue to the executive table for discussion. Minister O’Dowd went on further to complain about “How a partner in government handled the relationship with another partner in government.”
Hmm. Very keen for executive discussion all of a sudden now are we, John?
