Poll findings on protocol stance will make reassuring reading for Sir Jeffrey, but risks still lie ahead

6 10 9

DUP politicians returned home happy from the Platinum Jubilee celebrations across Northern Ireland.

As Boris Johnson was booed by royal supporters in London, Sir Jeffrey Donaldson’s party reported a much warmer reception for its representatives at events on this side of the Irish Sea.

While its political opponents are united in fury at the DUP for blocking a government being formed at Stormont, the party isn’t overly concerned.

It’s the home crowd, not outsiders, that it is currently focused on pleasing.

LucidTalk’s poll for the Belfast Telegraph will confirm to Sir Jeffrey Donaldson what he, his MLAs and MPs have heard on the ground.

Unionist voters support the DUP’s stance on not entering an Executive until the issues with the Northern Ireland Protocol are resolved.

Three-quarters said there should be no movement until the protocol is scrapped or undergoes “significant change”.
