Haven't said this about a Sinner in a while but fair play to him, he must have relocated his bollocks.

I wonder is it more related to his health than the RHI scandal or both.

Foster has some arrogance, and playing the misogyny card is pathetic, especially since her own party make some misogyny comments from Poots and Wilson.

If there now is an election then it'll be very interesting to see how people vote - Will the UUP be in a position to pick up DUP votes ?

That is the way I see it with SDLP increasing their seats too.

The DUP are dinosaurs...

NI needs a general election. 

I voted SDLP last time 1 and 2 and Alliance, as this was obvious to anyone who opened their eyes nothing has happened in the North since the early 2000's its time for a change. Eastwood has give an alternative over the last few months he carries no baggage, there is also the Alliance and UUP, Naoimi Long is superb and possibly the best politician in Northern Ireland.

Helpfully the electorate vote the alternative. Foster won't move, she'll be confident in an election. Hopefully this is the end of her and their party.

Yah UUP and SDLP to pick up seats. Foster more or less said earlier 'if their's to be an election bring it on' better be careful what she wishes for.

Indeed. Seem to recall him stating previously he voted SF in NI and Tory in England bizarrely

No, i repeatedly said on here SF/DUP cannot work and i voted the alternative in the recent election.. SDLP. I like Eastwood a lot, i think he's young and bright and offers NI a chance of working, the fact he went to the UUP conference says a lot about the chap.  

I previously voted SF, until the last election however as i did indeed state on here.

He said throughout the last elections in the north that he voted SDLP
He also likes the Tory party.
Strange, but how many times does he have to explain his reasoning?

McGuinness hasn't confirmed if he'll run if there is a snap election. Some journos ssaying this suggests to them he won't

McGuiness is seriously ill I reckon, he doesn't look well and hasn't been on a few trips he's lost a dramatic amount of weight also.

I think this is when NI politics turns on it's head, which is needed ASAP

There are ninety minutes for someone in the DUP to knife her and get her to step aside.

Let's see what happens.

That said, while it may *appear* to be an inopportune time for an election for the DUP, they'll be happy enough to go with it if they actually have something to hide.

Their options are this:
1) The DUP fight an election on the current public knowledge, and suffer some electoral damage, on the basis of speculation about RHI, or
2) The DUP force Foster to stand aside, there's an inquiry soon enough and
i) if the DUP and Foster are found to have engaged in wrongdoing, they get hammered publicly and in elections, which are unlikely to be long in coming; or
ii) if there is no wrongdoing, or if it is just a civil service f**k up, they emerge closer to unscathed and there is minimal electoral damage because it's a few years to an election.

So if they've done wrong, it's almost in their interest to have the election now, when the full picture isn't clear, and won't be clear.... but Foster personally will be f**ked and they'll lose a few seats as a party for the duration of the next assembly. I wouldn't be surprised if she hung on, because it is almost in the party's interest not to have the full picture clear before an election, assuming this is as bad as it looks.
