One of David Trimble’s most prominent internal critics has said that the former First Minister was “a great leader” who history has proven to have been right in most of his major decisions.

Former South Antrim MP David Burnside said that the Good Friday Agreement was a key victory for unionism, which the DUP still cannot publicly admit but which it knows to be true as it uses the Agreement to argue against the Northern Ireland Protocol.
