Credit where credit is due

So Ian Paisley and Gerry Adams have shared a table and agreed to go into Government together. And so far no demons have been spotted ice skating to work.

I will leave the historians to judge (and endlessly argue over) exactly who gets how much credit for bringing this about, but I think its fair enough to say that Tony Blair will get a reasonable chunk of it. Although John Major laid the ground work, my impression is that it needed somebody with Mr Blair's ability to charm a hind leg off a donkey to get the Good Friday Agreement and make it stick (to all intents and purposes).

So these last ten years haven't been totally wasted then Tony.
