The leader of the Alliance party yesterday suggested that the UUP and SDLP mirror image constituted a party political paradigm to be pitied – parties searching for a core purpose forever pulled down by a waning support base. David Ford then built on his analogical rhetoric by calling the DUP and SF parties mirror images of one another; qualifying however this proposition by suggesting that these party political duplicates are very much to be feared.
This compelling line of argumentation from the leader of the third party of half of Northern Ireland got me thinking about the dynamics of the DUP/SF coalition and inspired the image you see above. Your captions are welcome!
