No olive branch here!

Despite it being the season of goodwill there is no love, tolerance or understanding in the election of a new Grand Master of the Orange Order of Ireland. In a totally uncompromising tone the new Grand Master, Strabane farmer, Roberts Stevenson said,
“There is no fear of me attending a GAA (Gaelic Athletic Association) fixture because too many GAA clubs are still named after convicted terrorists and for that reason they carry too much baggage for me,”

He went on to call for
"unionist unity to prevent Sinn Féin gaining the post of first minister in the Northern Ireland Executive after next May’s Assembly elections."

So much for the Good Friday Agreement and the joint governance of the North of Ireland by the DUP and Sinn Fein over the last 4 years.
