Edwin Poots will be happy. The Maze site is to be developed after all. Although the Terrordome sports stadium is to be shelved for at least four years, the DUP has granted republicans a terrorist museum as part of its deal to get devolution back on track. With Irish American funding to be ploughed into its development, and Sinn Féin as its consistent champion, obviously the ‘Conflict Resolution Centre’ will be a bastion of good sense and objectivity.
Another triumph for the DUP’s fabled defence of unionism.
