Nigel Dodds said,

“Sinn Fein is under pressure and on the backfoot as people on the doorsteps demand the restoration of the NI Assembly so decisions about roads, schools and hospitals can be made.

The DUP has put forward a reasonable proposal to immediately restore the Assembly but in parallel with a talks process to deal with Sinn Fein demands such as the Irish language.

Most political leaders agree with the DUP.  Even Fianna Fail Leader Micheal Martin recognises that Sinn Fein’s blockage of the Assembly and Executive is not justified.

We recognise that Irish is important to some people but its not more important than waiting lists or properly resourced schools. Holding Northern Ireland to ransom over the Irish language is not acceptable.  Whilst Sinn Fein now raise other issues on their shopping list, people know there was only ever one priority for Sinn Fein which mattered.

When the ‘new’ Sinn Fein leadership is rolling out Gerry Adams, you know they’re under pressure.”
