Many unionists complain about Stormont, without offering a detailed workable alternative.

The Rev Ivan Foster (Rtd) writes that unionist leaders were foolish and blinded for political power when they entered into a ‘power sharing’ coalition with SF/IRA and its nationalist allies (‘Sharing power with those who want to destroy Northern Ireland,’ April 16, see link below).

Bearing in mind that political unionism no longer holds a majority in Stormont, I would like to ask Rev Foster what the workable alternative was that excluded Sinn Fein/IRA and its nationalist allies and voters?
