    McGuinness will no doubt be pretending he is not, nor ever has been, a member of FF.

    McGunniess' spiritual awakening magically started when he lost his ministerial position.

    Keep an eye on this episode. Labour always manages to wriggle itself out of answering tough questions and I've no doubt tonight will be just the same.

    Before this turns in to another anti PS rant thread. Please observe where the PS waste is occuring. Ask yourselves at what level could it be controlled and prevented. Please dont compare Ministers and their senior advisors to public sector workers. If you work in the private sector think what you would be able to do if your boss was a complete moron who got to their position through seniority and professional arse licking. Please focus on what part of the PS is to blame. We are not all the same just like the private sector does not consist of Bankers and developers.
    When you look for 25-50% cuts across the board remember that you are talking about people who are mostly on less than 40k with mortgages and families.

    +1 as a private sector worker, I agree what you are saying.

    It is the waste and overstaffing/duplication of work/quangos excess/use of agencies/consultancy "experts" and of course overpaid high earning civil servants/politicians etc that needs reform...but does this mean the end of croker..me thinks yes, which includes compulsory redundancies with reform done fairly, with an emphasis on efficiency and best working practices.

    PS I am not a PS basher, just want a good service for our buck and in these times the UNIONS domination and CROKER aint the way forward (going forward of course as we turn the corner).
