Let battle commence..

A sudden flurry of activity within the elderly senior 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! Update D’oh! As Duncan Shipley Dalton reminds me in the comments.. thanks!.. I forgot to, specifically, mention North Down MLA Alan McFarland, who is also reported to be considering running in the race for the UUP leadership.

We are reader supported. Donate to keep Slugger lit!

For over 20 years, Slugger has been an independent place for debate and new ideas. We have published over 40,000 posts and over one and a half million comments on the site. Each month we have over 70,000 readers. All this we have accomplished with only volunteers we have never had any paid staff.

Slugger does not receive any funding, and we respect our readers, so we will never run intrusive ads or sponsored posts. Instead, we are reader-supported. Help us keep Slugger independent by becoming a friend of Slugger. While we run a tight ship and no one gets paid to write, we need money to help us cover our costs.

If you like what we do, we are asking you to consider giving a monthly donation of any amount, or you can give a one-off donation. Any amount is appreciated.
