Thanks to the BBC (and Aaron and Mark) we can give you chance to watch and comment on the various party election broadcasts. The first is the UUP’s (video file). It gives the whip had to the leader David Trimble with a short economic breif being delivered by his deputy Reg Empey. Memorable lines include the suggestion that the DUP was ‘only one grubby polaroid away from actually forming a government’, but that they had no appetite for it. His party is “anxious to finish the job of building a decent society”. Their manifesto launches today at 2pm.
A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
