Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
with elections next year, I'm not sure collapsing Stormont would help the unionists very much at all.

Every display of all or nothing absolutism makes them increasingly distasteful to a majority of the working population. If they get creamed in the elections, they'll be locked out of govt forever. This is an existential crisis for unionism and they don't seem to get it.

The future and change always create problems for conservatives and the more conservative, the more they try to prevent change. But the harder they try, the greater will be the deluge that wipes them out.

And once they're out of government, the police will have no excuse for not clamping down on the paramilitary bullshit they surround themselves with
