UKIP announce candidates. World shakes.

UKIP have announced, apparently only some, of their 2011 Assembly Candidates.  Yet more spurned UUP members show up.  Trotter was Harry Hamilton’s campaign manager for UCUNF and was rejected for Assembly selection by both East Belfast and Upper Bann, while Reilly went to UKIP in 2007 after losing out to John McCallister in South Down.  He ran then as the only UKIP candidate and picked up a respectable 1200 votes, or put another way, exactly what he always gets at Council elections.

Anyone heard of any of the rest?
