Pretty much, that's his play, and it's been better executed than one night reasonably expect. Getting rid of Arlene is almost a given at this stage, she's been blaming the 'ra and sexism rather than the fact she offered a 160% subsidy for the crisis. The trick being pulled is in timing and volume. SF are trying to get an election moving whilst DUP and UUP are still cutting lumps out of each other, and do so without drawing too much attention to the idea that any swing within unionism leaves SF as largest party, most ministries etc. Getting the almost rehabilitated, sickly looking Martin to step down in seeming exasperation at the defiant, belligerent, madly spinning Arlene is a much more savvy move then I expected.
