John Hume does not see that the replacing of Captain Terence O'Neill will offer any hope to the civil rights movement. Hume argues that this resignation will lead to further tension as the speculation will now be about a successor.
Hume states that "wherever our source of hope lies, it certainly doesn't lie in the Unionist Party". Hume also says that he has no confidence in a party that overthrew a man on such an important principle.
