Donaldson: it’s not the DUP holding back progress

Jeffrey Donaldson takes exception to the SDLP’s targeting of his party as an obstacle to further progress. He argues instead that “Sinn Fein/IRA’s refusal to meet the absolute democratic bottom line of a total end to all IRA paramilitary and criminal activity and complete, visible, and verifiable decommissioning” is the effective block to further progress.
