Co-operation present and future

Chekov and Ignited both give their views today on Stephen King’s revelation that David Cameron rejected approaches by the DUP for a deal similar to the one Sir Reg Empey got.

Interesting that in their published accounts last week (PDF), the Alliance Party paid an affiliation fee of £65 last year for their tie to the Liberal Democrats. Funny they didn’t mention that more when the UUP made it’s announcement. Are they not proud of their link to mainland politics? If not why keep it?
