UUP: the main runners for Saturday…

Have a look at last week’s Hearts and Minds before it comes off line tomorrow. It contains a set piece between Alan McFarland and David McNarry, two of the main contenders for the Trimble succession at the UUP. We’d been interested in hearing your thoughts on both performances, and whether either has a decent chance against the more senior Reg Empey. Noel MacAdam in the Belfast Telegraph last night gave his run down of the main candidates.

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.
