No matter what my thoughts are on Gerry Adams - and believe me, they're not for repeating on this blog - we must all be happy at today's outcome in Belfast. Let's just hope that this time the power-sharing administration will be more enduring. Congratulations must go to Ian Paisley for acting in a responsible and statesmanlike manner throughout this process. It's something many of us didn't think he had in him.
And while I'm at it, I'll pay tribute to John Major for starting the whole process and also Tony Blair for seeing it through. Blair has done many things throughout the last few years in Northern Ireland which not only stuck in my throat, but I suspect his too. But there is little doubt that we wouldn't have got to where we are today if he hadn't done them.
