Many breathed a sigh of relief when Sinn Fein and the DUP agreed a new deal to resolve the power sharing crisis at Stormont... but not the union Unite. It has branded both parties 'Tory puppets' and said the deal ties Northern Ireland into future austerity measures by the Westminister Government. At the weekend Unite activists staged protests outside Sinn Fein and DUP constituency offices in Belfast.. there were also protests in Ballymoney, Newry and Londonderry. Joining me is Frank Shivers from the Northern Ireland Conservatives and Ciaran Cunningham from the union Unite.
