DUP leader Edwin Poots resigns citing an internal party revolt.

Responding to the news, a Sinn Féin spokesperson said the DUP leadership was “a matter for that party”.

Living the dream

His DNA was DUP, but nobody could have predicted how quickly the dream turned sour. 

Edwin Poots was living the dream, for 21 days at-least. leading the DUP party his father helped found, was a life long ambition. A cause he had been committed to for most his life. He even joined the party as a teenager.

But ironically, his downfall was sealed when those same MLAs were ignored by their new leader.
