One thing that’s been passing as common knowledge amongst some of our nationalist commentators here is that Bill Lowry is a member of the DUP. It’s largely based comments he made at Paisley’s famous/notorious (delete as appropriate) sackcloth and ashes meeting in Larne last year that apparently broke the deal. Well, we at Slugger can’t confirm or deny it, but from this Daily Ireland story it would seem unlikely!Gonzo adds: the full interview is here, and is well worth a read.
Mick is founding editor of Slugger. He has written papers on the impacts of the Internet on politics and the wider media and is a regular guest and speaking events across Ireland, the UK and Europe. Twitter: @MickFealty
