This chapter shows how the period that followed the end of the Convention was characterised by political inertia. It deals with the perception that under Roy Mason politics was pushed to one side in favour of a focus on the economy and security. This is extended to relations with the parties, including a congenial relationship with the Ulster Unionists and a steadily worsening one with the Social Democratic and Labour Party.

Keywords:   Ulster Unionists, SDLP, Political inertia
