McNarry says reshuffle a missed opportunity

David McNarry MLA, UKIP’s leader in Northern Ireland, has said that the latest DUP ministerial reshuffle was a missed opportunity to build unionist unity.

“Peter Robinson talks about unionist unity but when an opportunity comes along to build confidence in that idea, it gets conveniently forgotten. By appointing a Minister from another party, the DUP could have created the kind of atmosphere in which unionist unity could be fostered.”

“Moving the chess pieces about within his own party is all very well but it lacks the stamp of a really big idea. It, quite simply, does not fire the imagination.”
