WHO would be a UUP MLA these days? No, it’s not a rhetorical question: who would be a UUP MLA?
You face potential de-selection, and then, if selected and fortunate to be elected you could have a party leader you neither agree with nor do you like.
Such is the background to the current turmoil in the UUP camp.
So much for modernisation! Perhaps it is time for a rethink all round, but there will have to be some serious sorting out over the winter lest the UUP be cast adrift by its already indifferent electorate.
