UK Politics

What no Northern Ireland spokesman?

Why have the Conservatives not named a Northern Ireland spokesman as part of their new shadow cabinet? asks Slugger o’Toole.

Its a fairly amazing decision but it has been welcomed by Sinn Fein:

” Today’s decision by the British Conservative Party to abandon the position of NI spokesperson in their Shadow cabinet is a recognition of the reality of post Good Friday Agreement politics. It shows the journey the Tories have been forced to travel since their former leader Thatcher declared the Six Counties ‘as British as Finchley’.
