    Default Coveney (Eire deputy PM) found a reverse gear & licking up to DUP

    I see Simon Coneey is back tracking like mad now and licking up to the DUP

    "DUP demands the Northern Ireland institutions can not be brought down again by Sinn Fein should they be restored, is a reasonable expectation, the Irish Tanaiste and foreign minister Simon Coveney has said."

    Has any Eire politicians a back-bone?

    Not everything is about the Tundra you know. This has more to do with Coveney dogwhistling at the Sinn-Fein-afeared in Fine Gael than anything else.

    Keeping himself front of mind within the patio-party for when Varadkar's race is run.

    Éire? Are you recognising Minister Coveney as Deputy Prime Minister of the whole island? If so, welcome!

    If he keeps backtracking like this he might become the deputy PM of the whole of Ireland united under British rule, the only way that would happen.

    Simon is worried that nationalists in the north will not get the assembly up and running again.

    Shouldn't you be keeping an eye on Holyrood? Last igloo on the left.

    But you must admit it is a bit of an about turn.
    One thing about the recent DUP, at least now after Paisley, it does try to do what it says.
