Two politicians visiting the middle east with the aim of helping the Palestinians and Israelis find a peaceful solution. I wonder if there is any chance them ending up chained to the same radiator? (Or how much cash it would cost to achieve this outcome?) But seriously... Is there any likelyhood of Israel and the Palestinians reaching a peace settlement along NI lines? Are either of these politicos likely to have credibility or influence? Would the Treasury pay a ransom for their release?
