Statement by TUV leader Jim Allister:-
“Arlene Foster’s speech tonight demonstrated, again, a lamentable failure to face the irrepressible reality that this Stormont is doomed to failure because the partner she depends on for power, Sinn Fein, has no interest in making Northern Ireland work, quite the opposite. Yet, pitifully, the leader of unionism begs for a return to the guaranteed failure of the Stormont system.
“Now, just a few months after recognising the dangers of crocodile feeding, she even offers to legislate for the promotion of the Irish language. This is the politics of climbdown, not leadership.”
