Well, at last, Basil McCrea and John McCallister have jumped the brush together and defected to…well, we’re not quite sure yet…but they’ve left the Mad Auntie (AKA the UUP).
Rumour has it that a new local political party is in the offing. A non-sectarian, secular, pro-Union party.
That seems to me to be a good idea. In the context of devolution, and given the foot-shooting antics of the “national” political parties, that seems like a good plan.
I wish John and Basil every success.
