DUP conference postponed again

The annual party conference is something of an institution; the DUP’s seems to be a fun affair as well with speeches from Dr. Paisley and Mr. Robinson apparently along with the possibility of farmyard impressions. Unfortunately this enticing event has been postponed repeatedly with the last one apparently having been in February 2006.

Whilst sources within the DUP seem to be suggesting that the delay may be because of the difficulties finding a large enough hotel, the need for a two day conference or indeed the problem of accommodating corporate sponsors, others have suggested that the DUP may have difficulties explaining their “Damascus Road” conversion to the rank and file.
