“not as independent as many think…”

UTV’s Ken Reid makes an interesting point regarding the independently minded MP for North Down, Lady Hermon, and her positioning against the party she, currently, belongs to. But that’s politics… From Ken’s blog.

Almost certainly Lady Sylvia’s name will be on the ballot paper with an independent label. But not as independent as many think. The DUP is unlikely to field a candidate which will make the sitting MP the hot favourite to retain her seat. It was noticeable, the cordial relationship between the DUP MPs and the sole remaining Ulster Unionist MP at Westminster on Monday night.
