The justice deal was due to be announced @ 3pm but was then put back to 5pm at the earliest. And now I hear a meeting of senior DUP figures in Stormont has rejected the deal.
The Adams interview this morning which referred to the deal being a ‘staging’ post (to a united Ireland??) has caused problems.
An informed observer also tells me that at one stage the DUP were considering taking a secret ballot on the deal… and if Robbo lost that ballot then he would step down! I don’t know if such a ballot has taken place. But if the rumour of rejection is correct, then I suspect it might mean curtains for Robbo irrespective.
