Alex Kane: Partnership with Sinn Fein Unionism’s Best Available Option

UUP Strategist, Alex Kane, has gazed into the near future and doesn’t like what he sees for unionism. If unionism continues to turn against power-sharing with Sinn Fein, then the future will see ‘British-Irish joint management’ and a local government framework in which nationalism would ‘control’ the majority of the six counties.
Faced with this scenario, he seems to indicate that governing alongside Sinn Fein may be the only means of securing ‘the union.’
Are unionists beginning the hard sell of preparing their community for a Paisley- McGuiness led Executive? If so, then this may be the first sign of senior unionist figures beginning to grasp some harsh political realities.
