Watch Wilson Paisley , Campbell and the rest trying to distance themselves from Stormont implementing the protocol, it’s going to be great fun.
    The Scottish situation will be interesting too. The Cons could be annihilated there.
    The young Paisley, while he hasnt much savvy is not as bitter as Sammy Wilson or Campbell. Is there no members from across the pond to throw in their 2 bobs worth

      He looked a pitiful sight in the rain with his begging bowl out for votes and blaring in the background " Things can only get better " , lol .

        The Northern elections will be interesting. Will the DUP be wiped out ,? Who will benefit, I would guess the UUP and Aliance will mop seats up.

          Gavin Robinson seat was under threat from Alliance even before Jeffrey suspected crimes broke. Could he remain leader if he loses?

                Kellier , I would have agreed with you a few years ago , but I think he’s changed in the last few years, especially since Brexit.

                  I think Jeffrey's career in politics is over whichever way things go

                    They can promise this that and the other [ not only there , all over ] and even assuming they have good intentions , their best laid plans are subject to potential outside consequences / events .......... so for me they can promise all they want , the lot of them .

                        No I don't think so, she was involved in Social Work, she might still be doing that

                          The hardline TUV who have about 7% Unionists support will split the rest of the less hardline unionist support of the DUP. In the first pass the post system used in Westminster elections this could lose unionists around 4 or 5 seats to Alliance or even Sinn F

                              Paisley Jr likes a good time, all those dodgy tax payer funded holidays and frequently drunk in public. Also persistent rumours about him and the deputy first minister. Too many skeletons to not exploit especially with his late father religious base.

                                TUV and DUP might be at odds with each other but they will still circle the wagons for the Union. They both haven't declared candidates for North Down(Hollywood, Bangor, Donaghdee), currently held by the Alliance and are backing Independent unionist candidate Alex Easton( ex DUP).
