Northern Ireland - The forgotten crisis 

Almost unnoticed amid the multiple European cost of living and Downing Street crises, Northern Ireland is back in a political deadlock, with the resignation of the Democratic Unionist first minister in protest over the post-Brexit deal. However, official 2021 statistics show that the province has enjoyed its best economic performance, relative to the rest of the UK, for many years. Alex examines the issue with Jim Shannon, DUP MP for Strangford and Alasdair McDonnell, the former leader of the constitutional nationalist SDLP.
