DUP in waiting game…?

LOOKS like my speculation (second post) about what might be happening in Westminster could have some foundation. The Observer reports that after the next general election: “The combined unionist bloc vote of 10 would be the Tories’ most likely allies if they needed votes to form a minority government. The DUP expects to pick up more seats in the next general election. DUP strategists are urging Ian Paisley not to jump into devolved government with Sinn Fein this side of the general election. They have advised the DUP leader to wait and see how it can use its parliamentary clout once Tony Blair has left office and a general election is looming.”
