Until now, it was widely believed Daithí McKay would be staying schtum. He had taken a bullet for Sinn Féin by shouldering the blame for the Jamie Bryson coaching controversy.

Mr McKay was swiftly suspended from the party when the story broke. But the word on the political grapevine was that he would - after a decent interval - be reinstated and boxed off with another paid position.

Some suggested he may even end up back at Stormont as a special adviser. Now, it appears, Daithí McKay may not be prepared to go quietly after all.
