Audio: DUP will not "roll over" for Sinn Fein, says Arlene Foster

First Minister Arlene Foster has issued a robust message to Sinn Fein: the Democratic Unionist Party will not "rewrite the past" following the next election.

Mrs. Foster who was ousted from the first minister position by the resignation of Martin McGuinness last week amid the renewable heat incentive scandal said her party would not “roll over” for Sinn Fein

after the snap election.

During a visit to Enniskillen on Wednesday Mrs. Foster was asked if she thought she would return to Stormont as first minister following the March 2 vote.

She said, “Undoubtably before that there is some work to do, particularly in and around the negotiations which will happen after the election.

“If Sinn Fein think we are simply roll over after an election when we didn’t allow them to, for example rewrite the past before the election, we are certainly not going to do it after the election. I think there will be very tough negotiations after the election,”
