THE more cynical of online commentators have been having a pop at Mike Nesbitt’s announcement that he was to be the Ulster Unionist Party’s preferred candidate in the general election.
The former BBC radio presenter, UTV front man, Sunday morning TV host, PR consultant and most recently Victims Commissioner broke cover on Wednesday after a week of speculation.
To those that would criticise his range of jobs would do well to remember the word, ‘career’.
Nesbitt’s career hasn’t been that varied, given that he is no spring chicken. But boy will he be effective in getting coverage of his campaign, should he be selected as the Conservatives and Unionist candidate. Ohh! He’s already done that.
Mind you a former Strangford MP got a lot of coverage too.
