    vote for the guy who wouldn’t stand up to spads or ministers? when it counted.

  • Jag

    and vote for the guy who is now calling for 2nd preference votes to be given to the party which designed & implemented the RHI scheme.

    I know it’s not their natural constituency but I’d love to see People Before Pellets standing a candidate.

    On Nolan he said he was still a member of the DUP, yet he’s standing as a independent.
    You couldnt make it up.
    I have a question, i seem to remember that. the election after Arlene and Jeffry jumped ship from the UUP all DUP candidates if elected had to leave a substantial sum with the party.
    This sum was to be kept by the party if any MLA done. Arrlene or Jeffry and jumped to another party.
    Is my memory correct or playing tricks on me.
    If i am right maybe Johny wants sacked.
