Open Unionism


A forum to discuss new ideas and perspectives on Unionism…

UCUNF: 15 UUs; 2 Tories; 1 name to come

I posted this up earlier today on bobballs, thought this would be of interest here too.

Eight UCUNF candidates have been selected today.

  • Antrim East – Rodney McCune
  • Antrim North – Irwin Armstrong
  • Belfast North – Fred Cobain
  • Belfast South – Paula Bradshaw
  • Down North – Ian Parsley
  • Fermanagh and South Tyrone – Tom Elliott
  • Foyle – David Harding
  • Londonderry East – Lesley Macaulay

South Antrim will be last constituency to be decided.

As predicted earlier, only a couple of Tories were among the names: Parsley and Armstrong.

Here’s a reminder of the nine previously selected:

  • Strangford – Mike Nesbitt
  • Lagan Valley – Daphne Trimble
  • Newry and Armagh – Danny Kennedy
  • South Down – John McCallister
  • Upper Bann – Harry Hamilton
  • Mid Ulster – Sandra Overend
  • West Tyrone – Ross Hussey
  • West Belfast – Bill Manwaring
  • East Belfast – Trevor Ringland

That looks like a total of two Tories and 15 UUs, with one left to run.

PS. Paula Bradshaw is well organised. I’ve already been invited to become a fan of ‘Paula Bradshaw – Vote for Change in South Belfast’ on Facebook.
