The DUP leader Arlene Foster has chosen a column in today's


Irish News to "reach out to nationalists."


She said the perception by some that she is hostile to the feelings


of nationalists and republicans couldn't be further from the truth.

a new spirit of co-operation with all the parties at Stormont.

the Irish language being treated as the same as English.

this election, the Shoebridge course this election was the scandal which


followed, and all that followed from it. The DUP appeared to be in denial


over that. I welcome that, but what the people need is action.

number two, which was again Keith Earls went over the line again

with the weather forecast Good evening, the overriding feature


this weekend is the cold air, accentuated by the breeze picking up


today. It will remain breezy even windy


around the coast into tonight. A few showers drifting in on that


easterly breeze, some quite wintry. Quite a few places avoiding them. A


lot of dry weather through the night. Variable amounts of Cloud,


some clear spells, and temperatures will get close to freezing. With


Frost later. Lowest temperatures in clear spells. Generally, a lot of


cloud tomorrow, a lot of dry weather. Again, that cold easterly


breeze. Wintry showers through the morning but many parts dry. The


Republic of Ireland will have a few more showers particularly in the


east. Wintry showers pushing into eastern Scotland, northern England,


another 15 centimetres over parts of the Pennines which could be


disruptive. Some sleet and snow showers pushing into East Wales.


Drier towards the south and south-east but that easterly wind is


the main feature for all parts. Temperatures, single figures,


feeling much colder. This is Northern Ireland tomorrow


morning, mainly dry, a lot of cloud, highs of 5 degrees, called it in the


breeze. Some rain starting wintry pushing in into the evening


particularly over the hills. Monday, and Tuesday, the isobars are closely


packed together. Until Wednesday when the winds eased down and


temperatures get into double figures. Until then, cold, apart


from the odd shower, mainly dry. That's it from us until


5.50pm tomorrow evening.
