Sir Jeffrey Donaldson is right in saying in his first address as DUP leader that 50% plus 1 is no basis for stable government.

It’s a pity he omitted to mention the even bigger obstacle to democracy, namely mandatory coalition with those whose primary objective is to end the existence of the state.
