Arlene Foster and Michelle O’Neill gave a joint press conference for the first time in 73 days (Presseye/PA)

On the Belfast Telegraph's website on Thursday morning I wrote; 'I detect a touch of choreography in the O'Neill/McDonald/Foster statements in the past few hours (and) it sounds to me like a door is being nudged open.'

Arlene Foster's response to Michelle O'Neill's statement regretting aspects of the Bobby Storey funeral was also nuanced enough for me to suggest she 'would probably welcome the opportunity for the Executive to look coherent and united at a crucial moment.'

A few hours later Foster and O'Neill confirmed my hunch by co-presenting their first joint press conference in 73 days.
