Executive's 'big two' need to be honest

A PARADOX in our political world means that the more DUP and Sinn Fein politicians actually succeed in co-operating, the more the fear of losing their own support-base grows among them.

So, after praise for their success in overcoming differences, we get what some would refer to as the 'staged' disputes, mostly between Peter Robinson and Martin McGuinness. Their supporters would seem to prefer they were doing damage to their partners rather than working together.

How about some honesty from the DUP and Sinn Fein?
