Media Talk: Northern Ireland What Next?

With John Ware (Panorama), Henry McDoncald (The Observer), John O'Dowd (Sinn Fein). Others TBC. Moderated by Peter Taylor (BBC).

With Sinn Fein agreeing to support a united police force in Northern Ireland despite evidence of past complicity between Special Branch and loyalists paramilitaries, the Northern Ireland elections are due to go ahead in early March. Will they work this time?

Sinn Fein’s decision to support the police brings devolution a step closer. Sinn Fein’s president Gerry Adams called it ‘one of the most important decisions in the recent history of our country'.

But could the report by the police ombudsman for Northern Ireland, which revealed the connections between Special Branch and loyalist paramilitaries still derail the move?

And will the DUP commit to power sharing?

Join us as we discuss what happens when power returns to Stormont.

Henry McDonald – Ireland Editor of The Observer and author of six books including three definitive works on Ulster's paramilitary factions, INLA-Deadly Divisions, UVF and UDA. He is currently writing a book on the impact of the peace process on Irish republicanism.

John O'Dowd - Chief whip of Sinn Fein Assembly team.

Moderated by Peter Taylor - award winning BBC reporter who has covered Northern Ireland for over 30 years and written six books on the conflict - including the definitive BBC trilogy, Provos, Loyalists and Brits.
