While that has also been a warning from prior secretaries of state, this time it does not seem to be an dull threat.
It’s accepted a basement of an agreement is there that will need all parties to get quick on board.
Before Christmas a DUP was indicted of holding back, though it pronounced it had concerns over an Irish denunciation act and reforming a petition of concern.
But that was 2019.
Now it’s a new year, a British and Irish governments will be awaiting a new approach of thinking, given a 3 year anniversary of Stormont’s fall is quick approaching.
Before a talks were paused, Northern Ireland Secretary Julian Smith pronounced a parties and a British and Irish governments were “very close” to a deal.
