Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
You're even more of an incurable optimist than I am. 😊

In the election of 1994, the ANC got a clear mandate with 62.6% of the vote and 252 seats in a 400 seat parliament.

The NI situation is a religious conflict centuries old. As I understand it, the division is carried over from father to son. There is no peace but a truce. I haven't seen much of a reconciliation and the two camps were quite ready to and capable of confrontation recently. Same location as history dictates. First feat would be to "tear down that wall" and symbol of division. That would be a start for reconciliations and conversation between parties. Downing Street with Tory leadership won't be much of any help. Perhaps under leadership of an Irish-American? A long process that will take years.
