Lee has taken leave from his current job at DUP Headquarters to work on this campaign.

    I’d like to see Lee take his campaign to Strabane, Belleek or Newry and tell people why Leaving the EU is a good idea and explain all the uncertainty associated with Brexit and the future of the border

    It’s very useful to read contributions like this – it shows that you don’t know what you are talking about and don’t know who the major backroom figures in local political parties are.

    I’m sure he would be only to glad to refute the FUD regarding the Northern Ireland/ Ireland border.

  • Graham Parsons

    Anyone know his views on cutting corporation tax?

  • On the fence!

    Disappointing. Given that leaving the EU is one time when I most certainly am not “on the fence”, it does nothing at all for the campaign if it’s just looking like it’s DUP vs “the rest”.

    Makes Sinn Feins job so much easier unfortunately.

    Love to know if this is going to put an end to the DUP’s flirtations with the rival Grassroots Out movement.

    The big personnel difference between this and the Good Friday Agreement referendum is that David Trimble and Kate Hoey are on the Rejection side this time. Not sure if there’s anyone who was anti-Agreement but is also pro-EU in anyway.
