And the following day began on an even worse note. Ireland woke on Wednesday morning 13 May to find the SDLP proposal published in its entirety in the Irish Times. The leak had, presumably, come from the UUP, and they certainly were blamed by the SDLP when the Structures Sub-Committee reconvened that morning. Durkan demanded a leaders’ meeting to discuss the leak, but it was agreed that this could not happen before Friday morning, because of absences due – ironically enough – to EC business. The party leaders, as well as Mayhew, were due in Strasbourg that day and the next to attend the opening of a promotional exhibition on Northern Ireland at the European parliament.

The idea of an Irish Commissioner, they argued, was far beyond what the SDLP found acceptable in the Council of Ireland proposal of the Sunningdale Agreement of 1973. It was the DUP’s belief that incorporating the Nationalist identity in the settlement was more properly the business of Strand 2, and they urged the SDLP to drop the idea and agree a more mundane Strand 1 formula with the safeguard that, if they did not receive satisfaction in Strand 2, then the banking principle would save them from implementing anything against their will in Strand 1.

Paisley too was annoyed even to be seen to be involved in discussing any such heresy which implied the possibility of tinkering with the constitutional status of the North within the UK. Following the formal exhibition dinner, Mayhew met in private with Hume and Paisley, notably excluding senior UUP members who were at the dinner, to mollify the two men and win from them a commitment to continue with the talks process. Back at Stormont on Friday morning, Mayhew discussed the leak with each party leader separately, and then with all four together, as scheduled.
