I may be having Burns' Night keeping a track on events in Northern Ireland, good job my tatties are in the form of colcannon then.
Prime Minister Gordon Brown and his Irish counterpart Brian Cowen were meeting in London earlier this afternoon. But as 45 minutes of talks between Peter Robinson and Martin McGuinness only appeared to make matters worse the two Prime Ministers decided they needed to be in Northern Ireland for face to face intervention, they are not in Hillsborough Castle and the parties are coming to talk with them.
No doubt I will have updates when they come along. I expect a long night.
