'There is a different climate for leadership.'

An interview with Peter Robinson, incoming first minister of Northern Ireland and Democratic Unionist Party leader, is presented. According to Robinson, the central feature of any government is that there must be trust between the parties. Asked how his leadership style would differ from that of Ian Paisley, he affords himself a wry grin. He says that he operates much more in terms of the processes within the party and bringing people along. He adds that he is probably more involved in strategies rather than the sort of barnstorming type of leadership.
