Exclusive: and then there were six DUP candidates…

Okay, there’s some speculation on this morning’s thread about how long the list is and who might be on it. Slugger understands there are six so far and that, despite the speculation in press these names have been lodged with party headquarters for some weeks now. The names we have are as follows:

Deirdre Nelson
Diane Dodds
Robin Newton
David McIlveen (The son of the Rev McIlveen)
David Ryan
Roberta Patty-Coffey
