DUP yet to cross power-sharing rubicon

The DUP leadership “is engaged in a do-or-die struggle with political dinosaurs in their membership who, because of a toxic mixture of religious and politico-ethnic hatreds, can’t contemplate sharing power with any nationalist or Catholic, never mind Sinn Fein.”

So says Brian Feeney, in his latest column in today’s Irish News. Feeney points out that, were the DUP to fully agree to implement the current deal in the offing, they would be doing the opposite to everything Ian Paisley “has ever proclaimed anathema.”

Typical barn-storming stuff from the heavyweight columnist, sure to be hailed or railed against, depending on your political outlook.
