It?s funny how tropes become tropes. Effectively they?re simplifications. So for example, one will often read that the Northern Ireland Assembly and Executive are a ?glorified county council? (check it out. Google that phrase, it?s an interesting exercise) but then one reads this from the ever excellent Tony Connelly of RTÉ and one realises that, […]A
