Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The salient feature of her tenure, lest we forget, was the cash for ash affair, which she (mis)conceived before becoming First Minister -- no doubt just shonky pork-barrel politics rather than corruption on her part, but her refusal to assume any responsability enabled Sinn Fein to take the high moral ground and close down the devolved government for three years.

Thus demonstrating that she was a midget among midgets. I have no idea what difference it might have made if Stormont and the executive had been operational during that time -- an extra layer of chaos, most likely, but just possibly some real constructive debate about Ulster's future at such a vital time?
