DUP knows that an election brings and end to its immediate access to the emergency brake of the petition of concern to prevent criticism by others or motions it does not want.  It will be returned with less than 30 seats and it will still require 30 signatures for a petition of concern that it can easily muster with its 34 seats.
Don't worry when it matters Mike will tow the line.
Mike will tow the line, that's why Tom Elliot in an MP.

Be more interesting to see if he toes the line though.

If he keeps up the good work he could sort the bedroom tax on his own.

At this rate in a couple of weeks he and Hamilton will have found enough money to fund a United Ireland!

The DUP do not want an election.
They have very good machinery for an election.
There initial polls have been poor reading. They have badly miss judged the electorate.

The currently have a veto within government. They will not want to endanger that.
Hence the move by Girvan.
It's too little too late as SF will probably be encouraged to go to an election after a climb down like that.
Wanted.  Forwards to take frees.
Not fussy.  Any sort of ability will be considered

Why don't the nationalists throw up a few GAA wallahs to get the vote out  if there is an election ?

I would hope more of the Nationalist electorate would come out to try and ensure they don't get saddled with another DUP Administration.
The last 6 months of DUP rule should have shaken them out of their apathy.

FYI:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toe_the_line

toe the line

accept the authority, policies, or principles of a particular group, especially unwillingly.
"he knew that he had to toe the official line because he couldn't afford to be put on the dole"

synonyms:conform, obey the rules, comply with the rules, observe the rules, abide by the rules, adhere to the rules, act in accordance with the rules, follow the rules, keep to the rules, stick to the rules;


The Oxford Dictionary of Word Histories (Oxford: Oxford Univ. Press, 2002; ed. by Glynnis Chantrell) says, "The idiom toe the line from an athletics analogy originated in the early 19th century" (514).  The specific sport referred to is foot-racing, where the competitors must keep their feet behind a "line" or on a "mark" at the start of the race--as in "On your mark, get set, go!" 
So one who "toes the line" is one who does not allow his foot to stray over the line.   In other words, one who does not stray beyond a rigidly defined boundary.

Nobody does apathy better than the Nationalist electorate in N.Ireland and what has happened is no big shakes to most.  'What else do you expect from the DUP' will be the general opinion. Life is hard enough up North without getting over wrought about another election.

Besides, even Jamie Bryson has got SF sorted on their latest tactic of throwing the toys out of the pram to get another round of talks and concessions that couldn't be achieved through the democratic institutions.

Sinn Fein and the DUP are the political extremes and receive thousands of votes above anyone in the middle. If they are both so obstinate that they can't work together then its back to direct rule from London
