Let battle commence..

A sudden flurry of activity within the elderly ranks of the UUP. We asked – Who else is there? The answer came today. David McNarry officially joins the race for leadership of the UUP, Ken Maginnis is hanging in there hoping for a younger candidate with more experience *ahem* .. John Taylor, AKA Lord Kilcloney has offered himself up as interim leader (until when?).. and Reg Empey is, still, to officially declare.. but he is expected to do so on Thursday. Gentlemen… Start your engines!

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.
