Same-sex marriage has now officially become legal in Northern Ireland

  • Boris Johnson and Arlene Foster at Stormont last July

What Mr Johnson said - and what he didn't say - not only failed to answer that question, but may have raised some concern in Stormont's Department of Finance as to how the deal's gargantuan wish list is going to be funded.

"The only circumstances in which you could imagine the need for checks from GB to NI, as I have explained before, is if those goods were going on into Ireland and we had not secured - which I hope and am confident we will - a zero tariff, zero quota agreement with our friends and partners in the EU", Johnson told reporters in Belfast on Monday. North-south cooperation is going to resume.

"Leo Varadkar has never been called a bigot for refusing to sit in government with Sinn Fein".

Some public services, notably healthcare, are in crisis.

He added: "We also want to thank Ministers in the NIO, particularly the Secretary of State Julian Smith, Lord Ian Duncan, and their officials, who have worked with us to give effect to the law within a tight timetable".

Mrs Foster spoke of "significant and sustained investment, not just this year but over a number of years" while Ms O'Neill said "quite simply, we need the money to make it happen".

Black Widow new teaser: It is Natasha vs Taskmaster
The trailer for Scarlett Johansson's upcoming film debuted past year and gave us a few ideas as to what to expect from it. Titled as special look, the Scarlett Johansson starrer reinforces the thought that Black Widow will be high on action.

In a joint statement, Arlene Foster, the DUP leader and first minister, and Michelle O'Neill, Sinn Féin's leader and deputy first minister, said they had had constructive meetings with Johnson and Varadkar, but stressed that funding "must follow quickly". "This is crucial in ensuring transformation in areas such as health and also our road and water infrastructures".

"I'm not pretending it is an easy bit of work but we are fully aware of what needs to be done".

The new agreement contained provision for "proper responsibility for the use of public funds", he said.

He said the Northern Irish political parties had done a good job balancing that with giving confidence to victims of violence who were seeking answers.

Northern Ireland's ban on same sex marriage and abortion was lifted on October 21 after the Northern Ireland Assembly failed to restore devolution.

Stalled mechanisms backed by Northern Ireland's parties in a 2014 agreement are due to be implemented as part of last week's accord. This could set up a potential conflict with the Tory party's recent election pledge that there would be no unfair prosecutions of armed forces personnel where there was no new evidence.
