Causeway champ Arlene

How very encouraging it is that Minister Arlene Foster has entered into the fray to overcome that constipation which is endemic in all Northern Ireland Government departments.

I also believe that the National Trust, for all its claims to virtue, has never exercised responsibility in creating protective measures for the Causeway despite its declared status.

The Assembly must realise that, under direct rule, departments were happy to stagnate and tick over.

If we are to progress that attitude must no longer be tolerated. It is quite absurd that, as a result of the long, drawn out debate, there is no longer a possibility of a stadium being economically completed in time for the Olympics.
