SDLP follows UUP into ‘opposition’ May 19, 2016Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.
The SDLP has announced it is quitting the power-sharing administration in Northern Ireland to form part of the newly established opposition.
The move by the SDLP comes a week after fellow architects of the 1998 Good Friday Agreement, the Ulster Unionists, also opted to take their seats on the opposition benches.
But surely SF were also ‘fellow architects’ of the GFA/BA?
On the broader issue, sure, it seems to force SF and the DUP ‘together’ – which is presumably the intention of the UUP (and the SDLP to a lesser degree). But does that play quite the way they might expect?
