Trimble wants spotlight back on republicans…

Fred Cobain has his own ideas, involving the UUP in official opposition – leaving the DUP in an Executive with the SDLP and Sinn Fein. Probably a non-runner though. In other Ulster Unionist news, Dermot Nesbitt has announced he will stand against Iris Robinson in Strangford in the next Westminster election.
