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.
