I posted a story yesterday on the Young Unionist Blog about Sammy Wilson’s decision to run for Belfast City Council on the same day as asking the voters of East Antrim to send him to Parliament. Comments have raised the issue of Alan McFarland and Dermot Nesbitt, however these are entirely incomparable as Sammy is standing for both seats on the same day.
The debate has moved on to an issue which I have little knowledge of, that of alleged paramilitary involvement in Larne DUP. I believe that the story was in the local press at the time, although I am willing to stand corrected.
I used to write and get paid, now I read and don’t.
