Four Ulster Unionists, including Health Minister Michael McGimpsey’s brother Chris, have written to Reg Empey opposing the UUP’s link up with the Tory Party. The four accuse Reg of a lack of vision in seeking a short-term fix to the party’s problems.
Whilst none of the 4 are in themselves big hitters, it is undeniably embarrassing for the Health Minister that his brother is among the critics of the parties direction. Especially since anyone who knows anything about Michael McGimpsey’s political background will know that he is no Tory. Are his brother Chris’s views representative of his own? Did Michael have foreknowledge of his brother’s party conference day attack on the party leader?
