You wish, Mr. Robinson

Good to see that the taoiseach, despite his recent involvement in the attempt to criminalise 342,000 voters, is not falling for Peter Robinson's ridiculous idea that Sinn Féin cannot be involved in power-sharing for a generation. While Mr. Robinson's comments are an insight into the policy of exclusion that Unionists would like to see imposed, his wish is an absolute non starter. Sinn Féin represent the majority of nationalists in the north and if Mr. Robinson doesn't like that, then tough! Any power sharing deal, by its very nature, must involve Sinn Féin. The DUP must recognise this and return to the negotiating table after the elections.
