God Old Unionism!

I see that the DUP are set to run in South Belfast when the sitting UUP MP Martin Smyth resigns despite calls from the UUP,who are expected to put up the pro-Agreement Michael McGimpsey as their candidate,for a vote pact to prevent Sinn Fein gaining the seat.

DUP leader Ian Paisley has rejected the call saying that: "It is the principles of the election that are important,not the personalities,and if the principle is that a person goes down the road that Mr McGimpsey has in foreswearing traditional Unionism,then the people are demanding that the Democratic Unionist candidate runs in the neighbourhood."

Good old Unionism!It is nice to note the continued failure of unionism to get past its present difficulties.
Hopefully now the seat will go to a nationalist!
