An opinion piece I read today by Suzanne Breen caught by eye, since it chimed with my initial reflections after the conclusion of the local elections in Northern Ireland.

Breen's argument is that Irish nationalism in Northern Ireland is 'lacking a Jim Allister". This is partially true, but glides over the unfortunate reality that someone who is to Sinn Féin as Allister is to the DUP would be big on the armalite and low on the ballot box. However, the headline was almost certainly written by a sub and would not have been the one Breen wrote for herself.
