No grasp on reality.

The completly rudderless approach of the UUP in the wake of their electoral humiliation was shown today with a call by David Burnside for their party to oppose a deal with Sinn Féin under any circumstances. Any leadership which pays a blind bit of attention to this rant is showing little heed of political reality.

Does this mean that Mr. Burnside is suggesting that UUP abandon a policy of pursuing devolution because, as he knows well, if there is to a deal, it MUST involve Sinn Féin. No other deal is acceptable to the Nationalist people.
