McCrea interview

David Vance has conducted his first election interview with the UUP Lagan Valley Candidate Basil McCrea on A Tangled Web.Basil’s comments regarding his chances in Lagan Valley are interesting:

With regard to the numbers (rounded for simplification) there were 26,000 UUP voters at the last Westminster elections and only 6,000 DUP. In simple terms, (it is not worth long arguments, Alliance etc etc.) Mr. Donaldson needs a personal vote of 10,001 to win the seat. That is a challenge and my experience on the door step is that he will not achieve this. Many people are deeply unhappy and offended about his decision to jump ship.

Has Jeffrey taken his support for granted? We shall see.

I used to write and get paid, now I read and don’t.
