UUP leadership contenders…

With only one candidate officially standing for the leadership, there’s plenty of rumours about who else might be standing. Reg Empey is one such. David McNarry is also considering running. But I’m not sure Jude Collins will get many takers on his outside tip of the day – his name sake Colonel Tim Collins.
