Allister takes advantage of DUP split over Maze stadium…

JIM Allister continues to put pressure on his former DUP colleagues. Today, he calls on DUP Environment Minister Arlene Foster to de-list the protected H-blocks at the Maze Prison site, which her DUP Sports Minister colleague Edwin Poots said on Saturday “will still be there, irrespective of whether there’s a stadium developed there”. Allister is capitalising on fears within his former party that the preserved prison blocks will become a “shrine” to the IRA hunger strikers. Will Poots be hung out to dry?
