Why do DUP seek to share power again with SF?

The prime minister is right in her determination to robustly tackle extremism like that which once again terrorised London at the weekend.

We have a right to expect a zero tolerance of those whose acts are the outworking of evil minds.

Similarly, we must not be expected to respect or offer any recognition to those who encourage terrorism through vocal or tacit support.

In this election week, one question for the DUP is why they seek to re-engage in government with those who refuse to condemn all such acts of terror.

There is little difference between Sinn Fein’s position of support for IRA atrocities and that of the DUP who regard such support as no obstacle to coalition.
