WHAT’S GOING ON IN DUNDELA AVENUE?
Who is directing the DUP’s communications nowadays? Is it me or are they losing their bite?
The weakest, flimsiest attack yet mounted by the DUP on UCUNF arrived in the News Letter today courtesyof Michelle McIlveen. Well, here goes:
The DUP had accused the Ulster Unionists of being in disarray, claiming a policy document on the transfer of justice and policing had disappeared from the party’s website.
Seriously, that was it.
The DUP voluntarily reinforces the ‘little Ulster nationalist’ attack line when they do stuff as poorly as this. The DUP are big and outward facing, but they are communicating the opposite and amplifying the attacks of rivals with this silly material.
They must soften up on the UUP/Tory merger. The Tories have said they are not neutral on the Union and that a Unionist could be in the next UK government. It must be right to support this lest you never use the words ‘unionist unity’ again.
