DUP and UUP Fail to Agree

The DUP and UUP have failed to agree on an anti-Sinn Fein electoral pact ahead of the upcoming British general election.

Representatives of the two parties attended talks arranged by the Orange Order (the Orange Order?So much for them leaving behind politics!) today to discuss the possible pact, which would mainly be aimed at preventing Sinn Fein from becoming the largest Northern party at Westminster, which remains a possibility in the May election.

Despite failing to reach a deal, the DUP did agree to study UUP proposals for a joint unionist campaign in the May ballot.

Although I have no time for Sinn Fein and feel they are keeping the border in place through their criminality, I will shed no tears over unionism's failure to reach a deal!
