  1. Comment on Independent unionist ‘gentleman’ MLA David McClarty dies
    on 20 April 2014 at 1:39 pm

    Given how popular he was with almost everybody why on earth did the UUP deselect him?

    He came first in the constituency member ballot. He was deselected because a committee from the association, comprised of officers and party hacks thought the found somebody better. Some people had old scores to settle.

    Drumlin’s Rock,

    As for the de-selection, I don’t why the local branch made the decision, it was clearly wrong from the start,

    Don’t go fobbing off the local party as scapegoats here. The UUP executive committee approved the decision.

    “Hume was a lesser man. He screwed over his own party because he wanted to get all the credit for building the peace. He wanted his name in the history books.”

    I would never had you down as a critic of St John Hume CS.

  9. Comment on The dogmatically honest Northern Irish journalist John Cole dies
    on 8 November 2013 at 1:02 pm

    He was a bit before my time but I’ve seen him in reruns of the ’92 election. Seemed like a good egg. Sorry to hear he’s passed on.

    I’m in my twenties, and the last thing I want is to be governed by people my own age.
