DISUNITED KINGDOM: Boris Johnson has stabbed Arlene Foster and unionists in the back

In Northern Ireland's centenary year, some in unionism are starting to debate collapsing Stormont in protest at the protocol.

It's the height of irony that the British politician bringing them to the brink is not Jeremy Corbyn - whom they spent the life of an entire parliament denouncing as a republican sympathiser - but the man many of them once praised to high heaven.

Not so long ago, it looked like Boris and Arlene would rule the realm in harmony for years to come as they stood regally on that balcony in Parliament Buildings. There's plenty in her party who would now throw him off it given half a chance.
