In fact this (water) crisis is perfectly functional in that it has shown the politicians and the people that populism - "no water charges" - is a highway to nothing and that actually "the Brits" won't bail them out every time (an attitude that is every bit as prevalent on the Unionist side as that of the Nationalists). In short it is the first "real" political event to seen in the North since 1998/1969/1922 (tick your pick).
