'From fanaticism to barbarism is only one step' - Diderot

Bertie accepts what anyone with any sense already knew ...

... that it is unlikely (more like absolutely beyond any reasonable belief of what might happen, in the real world!) to be a breakthrough in the political process in Northern Ireland before Christmas. Of course, if it does happen, wouldn't it be great - but then cold hard reality impinges. Well done, Bertie, for telling your staff to take time off over the festive season, rather than indulging in yet another round of late-night brinksmanship simply to give both sides of this interminable argument further media exposure.
