by Tim Hughes

Tim is coordinator of the UK Open Government Network.

From The Detail:

“THE words `Stormont’ and ’Open Government’ do not sit easily together.

The political institutions are regularly found to be teetering on the edge of crisis.

The smaller parties on the Executive claim to be left in the dark about DUP/Sinn Féin deals.

And the British and Irish governments are accused of leading the round-table talks at Stormont in ever decreasing circles.

But despite this backdrop, groups from around Northern Ireland are being invited to use new UK commitments on ’Open Government’ to maximise the Assembly’s potential.”
