North Antrim set to be an election battleground

AS mentioned recently, smooth-talking ex-DUP member, ex-practising Barrister, and ex-MEP Jim Allister is poised for a fierce challenge to the DUP hegemony in North Antrim.

Allister has dared Ian, father of Ian.

Ian, son of Ian, has dared Allister back

And Allister will no doubt double dare him. And so on, you get the picture.

And we may then ponder what other TUV candidates will stand in the General and Assembly elections.

Even if Allister is thwarted in his parliamentary ambitions he could be in the Assembly by 2011. This could make moribund Assembly debates a little more interesting.

However, his stated ambition is to bring the mandatory coalition to an end. Well, everyone needs a hobby.
