“This attempt to regain primacy was just too brazen”

Bob has his own take on the UUP/Conservative success in shaping the DUP front bench this week.

This attempt to regain primacy was just too brazen. I hear that when the News Letter got this statement they immediately called up a press office. The DUP press office? Nope. They called the UUP Press Office. Why? Because they couldn’t believe it, they thought the statement was a wind up – they wanted to know if someone was havin’ a laugh.

This statement from Peter beggars credulity because the DUP have been so flagrant in their opposition of the Tories. The DUP have revelled in being on the wrong side of the division lobby to the Tories – and they’ve been vicious in their declamation of Tories over here. (McIlveen might be right, might be wrong – but that the Tories/UUP are vote splitting rascals with a dislike of the OO is the DUP’s party line on this right?)

I used to write and get paid, now I read and don’t.
