The DUP’s newly ‘resurrected’ power-sharing arrangement with Sinn Fein signals a new and more dangerous constitutional situation in Northern Ireland. The present political scene in Stormont is decidedly worse than the previously shameful set of circumstances, that were brought in by the DUP’s 2007 sell-out to power-sharing with Sinn Fein, as this BBC news report indicates.
The joint visit by ‘Prime Minister Rishi Sunak and Taoiseach (Irish PM) Leo Varadkar’ to meet with the leaders of Sinn Fein and the DUP, surely must indicate that we have ‘joint control’ operating over northern Ireland by the London and Dublin governments! I am sure that Sinn Fein’s Michelle O’Neill, the First Minister, would doubtless have insisted on Varadkar being here as an indication of Dublin’s role in our affairs! The DUP’s Deputy First Minister Emma Little-Pengelly and Assembly Speaker, DUP man, Edwin Poots, were both photographed standing by lamely as this republican ‘advance’ of its political objectives was confirmed!
Having failed to get rid of the ‘post-Brexit trade rules’, despite loudly proclaiming that he had, Jeffrey Donaldson has led the DUP, and Unionism generally, into a further degrading of our constitutional position within the United Kingdom. This is indicated by the Dublin Prime Minister, the self-confessed sodomite, Leo Varadkar, being welcomed to Stormont alongside the British Prime Minister by the DUP, thus signifying that he has a place in the directing of the affair of Northern Ireland.
Far from leading Unionism into ‘good times’, as he has declared, Donaldson has only managed to ‘grease the downward slide’ and accelerate the demise of our Protestant heritage!
“O Israel, thou hast destroyed thyself . . . O Israel, return unto the LORD thy God; for thou hast fallen by thine iniquity.,” Hosea 13:9, 4:1.
“Yet the LORD testified against Israel, and against Judah, by all the prophets, and by all the seers, saying, Turn ye from your evil ways, and keep my commandments and my statutes, according to all the law which I commanded your fathers, and which I sent to you by my servants the prophets. Notwithstanding they would not hear, but hardened their necks, like to the neck of their fathers, that did not believe in the LORD their God,” 2 Kings 17:13-14. (Please read all of 2 Kings 17)
“The shew of their countenance doth witness against them; and they declare their sin as Sodom, they hide it not. Woe unto their soul! for they have rewarded evil unto themselves,” Isaiah 3:9.
“Hast thou not procured this unto thyself, in that thou hast forsaken the LORD thy God, when he led thee by the way? . . . . Thine own wickedness shall correct thee, and thy backslidings shall reprove thee: know therefore and see that it is an evil thing and bitter, that thou hast forsaken the LORD thy God, and that my fear is not in thee, saith the Lord GOD of hosts,” Jeremiah 2:17, 19.
