European Tribune - Brexit Mania
Expect much wailing and gnashing of teeth when Sinn Fein (the other big winners in the N. Ireland elections) refuse to reactivate the Stormont devolved institutions unless it receives guarantees there will be no hard customs border with the south.

Despite reading your eminent reporting on North Ireland politics, I scratch my head and ask why those institutions are not active today? I know they had an election and that the DUP was involved in a scandal but I thought coalition building in North Ireland was a matter of simply voting and applying the D'Hondt method?
