A new, if disputed, border in the Irish Sea, bringing delays in deliveries and complicating our food supplies, is not the rosiest environment for marking a year on from the New Decade, New Approach agreement.

But 12 months after the deal that restored power-sharing following a three-year hiatus, Secretary of State Brandon Lewis insists the very fact we still have an Executive at all is to be cheered.

"From several years of having no Executive at Stormont, I think having the Executive back up and running is a very good thing," he said.
