Maginnis bows out before race begins

Ken Maginnis [that’s “Lord Maginnis of Drumglass” – ed.] has bowed out of the race for leadership of the UUP as the jockeying for position begins. That’s Ken Lord Maginnis who said previously – “Let me be frank, if I could find somebody that was 20 years younger than I am, who had the same objectives, the same experience, then I would not be up for the leadership.”.. and did he? Well, he’s now saying “I will most likely support Sir Reg Empey..”.. So that’s a ‘No’ then?

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.
