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!
