  • Martin McGuinness: 'A united Ireland is inevitable but I won't put a date on it' - BelfastTelegraph.co.uk
    concluded the Stormont House Agreement much of it was done between the DUP and Sinn Fein Other parties of course were involved and then there was confusion But there was no confusion in my mind whenever Conor Murphy in the immediate aftermath of the Stormont House Agreement made it clear that our position was that we would fully protect those people who would have payments damaged by the approach of the British government Not one unionist politician not one member of the British government contradicted what Conor Murphy said So we end up with a situation where there is confusion In March Peter Robinson and I had a day long engagement around finding a way forward We agreed what that way forward could be Thus far there have been difficulties in trying to bring that to a conclusion but there are ongoing discussions taking place and this isn t about one upmanship This is about trying to put together an agreement which everybody can live with Q What are relations like with Peter Robinson A Well I have never had a bad relationship with Peter Robinson There are colleagues of yours in the media and they are a tiny minority who use phrases like they hate one another I don t hate Peter Robinson and I don t think Peter Robinson hates me We have worked together in the Office of the First Minister and Deputy First Minister since 2008 This is 2015 If relationships were as bad as they are portrayed then I don t think the institutions could have survived so long I understand where Peter is coming from I think Peter understands where I am coming from My view is that we are both trying to do our best Q What happens if Peter Robinson retires before the next election A It is pointless speculating about other people s plans I will work with whoever is leader of the DUP I have been honoured to work with both Ian Paisley and Peter over several years but do you think we agreed on everything No they have their own allegiances to what they call the United Kingdom My allegiance is to Ireland Yet we are in government together delivering important agendas for citizens We have come through what has been the worst economic downturn in history Our visits to the United States have brought huge benefits by helping attract foreign direct investment on a scale not previously seen in the north of Ireland We have steadily reduced unemployment figures over the past couple of years I think that and dozens and dozens of other decisions that have been taken have been actually good for society here Q It seems to me from what you have said that you are not offering any flexibility on the part of Sinn Fein You are saying the British government has to be flexible in how it gives money A No What I am saying is that in trying to find a way through the present difficulties there is a duty and responsibility on all of us I am not placing the responsibility just on the British government I think that we all have a responsibility to deal with the difficulties which we face because of a very clear agenda from the British government which is to use the words of a former member of the same cabinet that David Cameron sat on about destroying the Welfare State Q But they got a majority so it is hard to stop them A We have to try and find a way forward I think that some of the comments that have been made in the course of the past couple of weeks by people within the British government gave some indication that they recognise that we are going to have to forge an agreement which they will contribute to How they contribute to it of course will be the trick Q Are you suggesting that they give money for something else that will free up our budget for welfare A I won t go into any detail on how we negotiate these things but you are around an awful long time When I use phrases like people need to be creative and imaginative and whenever the Taoiseach goes to meet David Cameron and agrees with me that shows that the British are getting clear messages from a lot of people about the need to contribute to a resolution of this difficulty Q You were in America The DUP said you were wasting your time but Theresa Villiers didn t agree Do you think you have made any progress there There was no statement from the US administration A The person who said I was wasting my time was Arlene Foster the Finance Minister With respect to Arlene I am the best person to judge whether or not I have wasted my time and the Americans are the best judges of whether they were wasting their time in meeting me Q Who did you meet A I met with Mike Carpenter who is a very senior official within Joe Biden s office Joe Biden is Vice President Mike Carpenter is Special Advisor for Europe and Eurasia I met Drew O Brien Special Representative for Global projects at the State Department and I met Katie Nutt Ireland desk State Department Drew O Brien as you know is a very very close associate of the Secretary of State John Kerry I thought it was a good meeting Q Have they promised to do anything A They have a major role and there is no doubt in my mind whatsoever that they are exercised about the present difficulties and that they want to see a resolution I believe that message has been delivered everywhere Q What do you think should be done about funerals and parades with paramilitary trappings A People need to remain peaceful people who are marching in protest and people who are protesting against them

  • Survey: Most Northern Ireland Catholics want to remain in UK - BelfastTelegraph.co.uk
    that DUP support was 18 well below the 38 the party secured in last month s Assembly elections By contrast the UUP scored 16 in both the poll and the actual election On the nationalist side the SDLP on 17 was comfortably ahead of Sinn Fein s 11 In the election the roles were reversed with Sinn Fein scoring 29 and the SDLP 14 One explanation may be that the poll covers both voters and non voters It may also be possible that some people are more reluctant to tell researchers that they vote for the DUP or Sinn Fein than the UUP or SDLP as they may wish to appear more moderate to a stranger In the past Ark has said it believes that people surveyed have also been reluctant to give entirely accurate information on issues like income voting intentions or their sexual orientation Fieldwork for the 2010 survey was carried out between October 1 2010 and December 18 2010 1 205 adults were interviewed From the web Sponsored Videos Your Comments COMMENT RULES Comments that are judged to be defamatory abusive or in bad taste are not acceptable and contributors who consistently fall below certain criteria will be permanently blacklisted The moderator will not enter into debate with individual contributors and the moderator s decision is final It is Belfast Telegraph policy to close comments on court cases tribunals and active legal investigations We may also close comments on articles which are being targeted for abuse Problems with commenting customercare belfasttelegraph co uk Powered by Livefyre Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Livefyre Read More Boycotting Israeli goods to become criminal offence for public bodies and student new By Oliver Wright A controversial crackdown being announced by the Government in Westminster plans to ban councils public bodies and even some university student unions from boycotting unethical companies Northern Ireland legacy unit could clear cases in five years By Noel McAdam Northern Ireland s Lord Chief Justice has set out a five year timeframe for dealing with controversial inquests which have remained logjammed for years Date set for appeal against incompatible Northern Ireland abortion law ruling By Alan Erwin Appeals against a ruling that abortion law in Northern Ireland is incompatible with human rights legislation will be heard in June Ford warns of abortion law limbo as Northern Ireland MLAs vote against amendment By Noel McAdam Northern Ireland s abortion laws are likely to remain in limbo for some time Justice Minister David Ford has warned Most Read Most Shared Most Commented Northern Ireland legacy unit could clear cases in five years Politics Fury at Sinn Fein boycott Israel call Politics Martin McGuinness A united Ireland is inevitable but I won t put a date on it Politics Complaint after Jim Wells appears to make sexist remark in Assembly Politics Survey Most Northern Ireland Catholics want to remain in UK Politics Woman s body found on the M2 in Belfast near Bellevue Bridge Northern Ireland
