Speculation is useless. But whoever put this skit together obviously thinks there may only be two UUP Westminster seats come some time late time tomorrow. Most of these guys will be glad to see the end of what’s been a tough election road, that didn’t start well (with Michael Copeland’s office being searched). McGimpsey is by temperament and by background a businessman. He was drawn into politics through his involvement in the peace movement. He seems at times bewildered at some of the visceral flack he’s had throughout the campaign. Thanks to reader Mark!
