Donaldson calls for Unionist unity

Jeffrey Donaldson, until recently an enormous thorn in the side of his leader David Trimble is now calling for wider unity within the Unionist camp, “I think a divided unionism, not just within the UUP, in fact the greater divisions within unionism are between the two parties.”

Though there is nothing particularly unusual about such a call before elections, the recent adoption of former Tory MP Andrew Hunter as DUP candidate in Donaldson’s constituency may have concentrated his mind on the personal challenge to him.
