As a law and order party the DUP are presiding over two tier policing, dwindling respect for the law and no control over disorder.

People appreciate that leadership is not easy and with the pandemic it is particularly difficult.

However the Belfast Agreement, which was the expected pathway to peace and a better Northern Ireland, is being summarily dismantled by Sinn Fein.

So come on Arlene, shake yourself and reflect on recent DUP leadership performances.

Spell it out! Are you promising that the outstanding issues surrounding the Storey funeral fiasco, the Nortern Ireland Protocol and an Irish Language act are or will be resolved to satisfy most unionists?

If so how and when?

You have called for the deputy first minister and the PSNI chief constable to resign.

But what is your next move should — as looks likely — they face you down?

What terms and conditions will you impose which enable you to continue in good faith working with and having confidence in Michelle O’Neill and Simon Byrne.

David McNarry, Comber, Co Down
