The DUP have lot to learn about communicating with their base…

I’ve a piece coming out on CIF later today, focusing on the DUP’s not inconsiderable difficulties arising from this result. But it seems Chris has hit the mark for the party’s leader and Northern Ireland’s First Minister, who quotes him on this interview on the BBC:

“The reason it (the election results) has happened is that very high profile people within the party have been in government. I’m not one who regularly blogs but I did read one comment which I thought was pertinent where it said Sinn Fein have an awful lot to learn from the DUP in terms of governance but the DUP have an awful lot to learn from Sinn Fein in terms of communicating with their base. There’s a lot of truth in that.”

High Five Mr Donnelly!
