What in world has changed for Robinson?

Published 25/03/2013

Recently the First and Deputy First Ministers, Peter Robinson and Martin McGuinness, have been traipsing around the world in China, Brazil and Washington.

I recall vividly a DUP branch meeting in east Belfast, where Mr Robinson stressed the importance of DUP voters getting out to vote, in order to prevent the very same Deputy First Minister, Mr McGuinness, from getting elected with the greater number of votes and becoming First Minister.

His quote then was: "After all, do we really want Martin McGuinness travelling around the world as the Prime Minister of Northern Ireland?" What's changed? And why is Mr Robinson so comfortable in Martin's company now?
