It seems that Sylvia Hermon some interesting answers to a recent question (scroll down) in the House of Commons, regarding the affliation of people applying to become members of the Human Rights Commission. Interestingly, Labour and the Alliance Party come top of all original applicants with any party affliations: eight each. The SDLP scored 6, the UUP 4 and the DUP 3 applicants. Strangely, Sinn Fein had none. Even the Lib Dems (who don’t organise in NI) had 2. Thanks to Alan for the heads up.
