DUP preparing for seismic shift- Feeney

In his most optimistic piece to date, Brian Feeney traces the not too subtle evidence in the public domain that the DUP might be inching towards a position of entering government with Sinn Fein: the conducting of ‘internal party consultations,’ demands by Paisley for a post-deal election and, of course, supping with a certain associate of the Anti-Christ.
He concludes by observing that those best positioned to benefit from a Paisley volte face over compromising with Sinn Fein are the potential future successors to Ian Paisley within the DUP, who would doubtlessly struggle to deliver a historic compromise in a post-Paisley scenario.
