DUP: statesmanship or public diplomacy?

David Vance may have been the star turn of last night’s Hearts and Minds – but the set piece debate between Chris Farrington and Alison O’Connor is the best viewing this week, as they dissect the current situation viz-a-viz the DUP. Nice spot with Tom Kelly and Austin Curry on future of the SDLP. All in all, a great relief from the usual four man party scrum!

A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
