Interesting kite flying from Brian Feeney this week. He reckons that the DUP and the PDs were the intended targets of Dermot Ahern’s remarks that if the IRA were to decommission they might well find themselves in government in Dublin.It’s a dynamic he thinks has further to go:
“In due course also the DUP will find it in their interest to put out feelers to parties in the Republic to support certain arguments and positions in the Dail. If not, they’re going to find northern and southern SF ministers singing off the same hymn-sheet. So maybe the DUP and the PDs have more in common that you think”.
