DUP leader with Paul Givan who should become Northern Ireland First Minister.

The new DUP leader is on course to finally get his man over the line as First Minister today, but he is paying a much higher price for it than he will have reckoned when he set out to topple Arlene Foster.

The only positive for him from the deal announced early today to save Stormont is that he avoids an autumn election. In every other respect, it’s a disaster and shows the law of unintended consequences following the Poots’ putsch.
