The Stormont Assembly sat for the first time in nearly three years yesterday and was treated to an uninterrupted 51 minutes of the DUP collectively bellowing “NO!”, before everybody went home again having resolved nothing.

The recall came about after legislation was passed in Westminster which decriminalised abortion and same-sex marriage in Northern Ireland, as everyone was keen to learn what the DUP might think about the matter. But after just less than an hour, proceedings ground to a halt with the Assembly having failed to elect the team of speakers, agree on the order of proceedings, decide whether the window should be open or closed or whether to have custard creams or chocolate digestives with the tea and coffee. Asked whether they were always these obstructive, the DUP members collectively shouted ‘No!’
