Jeffrey Donaldson’s first official speech as DUP leader was measured and low-key: no rabble-rousing to please those organising the recent anti-protocol meetings and no promises about things he knows are probably undeliverable.

Nothing about the Irish language, either, just a sentence about the DUP’s ongoing commitment to delivering the stuff contained in the New Decade, New Approach deal. It was exactly the sort of workmanlike, safe-pair-of-hands speech at which he excels.
