‘No reason why UUP couldn’t be in Tory cabinet’…

HOPEFULLY, there will be some debate on the subject of an Ulster Unionist serving in a future Tory cabinet during the Conservative conference. Shadow NI spokesman Owen Paterson says there’s no reason why it shouldn’t happen. Others would disagree, although oddly the DUP seems more concerned with trying to prevent a UUP-Tory link-up than allowing it to happen and reaping the rewards they claim would be there for the taking when it falls apart. Of course, the UUP would need to ensure they manage to get at least one MP elected – the only current one being the pro-Labour Lady Sylvia.
