Watching from the wings

LIKE a brooding presence, former MEP Jim Allister and his TUV cohorts will try to use any political deal here as a means of attacking the DUP in the upcoming general election. In a weird logic game, Jim Allister said that even if his party win no seats it won’t affect its strength as a political force.

Furthermore, Mr Allister likes to remind us that even though he lost his European Parliament seat, the TUV were the real winners in the Euro election.

You don’t need to be statistician, mathematician or political scientist to come to the conclusion is that if you don’t ‘win’ any seats, then you haven’t ‘won’ the election. Just wanted to be clear on that…
