United we stand, divided...well we just don’t know

And so to the unionist quandary... is a united unionist poll stance a good thing, or is it a move to sectarian head counting, or even a diminution of the ‘broad church’ of unionism?

Ahead of the deadline for nominees for UUP leader such debates are taking up much mindspace within unionist circles.

But while they wrangle and discuss the pluses and minuses of such unity within unionism, the reality must surely be that for most UUP voters (and a fair amount of DUP and Tory voters) the main concerns are whether they will have a job come 2011 and how long they will wait for a hospital appointment.
