Yup. I was talking to a FFáiler a while back and I took him to task about misrepresenting SF's position on a number of issues, including their repeated claim that SF have demanded Arlene Foster stand down as DUP leader (they haven't). He admitted that there is a difference between such an unreasonable demand and asking Foster to stand down as First Minister while the RHI Enquiry does its work. He was even prepared to acknowledge that SF had initially suggested that to Foster in private so as to allow her to claim the initiative. "Thing is, if we can attach blame to SF for bringing down the Executive, we will." Facts, the future of the Executive, all must take second place to FF's turf war with SF.FF now see defeating Sinn Fein as their only political objective and every interest including the national interest is secondary to that objective.
