The final ballots were hardly finished being counted when two big losers in the EU referendum, the SNP and Sinn Fein, began a rather transparent attempt to gain some political capital out of the result. The SNP argued that there should be a second Independence referendum in Scotland, whilst Sinn Fein demanded a border poll […]NI border has never been clearer- UK security is paramount following Leave vote

The Stormont Circus, LADFLEG When I first wrote this article in September 2016, I submitted it to a popular political commentary platform believing it to be worthy of consideration for sharing.

A former chairman of the Ulster Unionist Party has resigned from the party and accused it of “political mismanagement and amateurism”.
David Campbell had been a party member for 35 years, and served as former leader David Trimble’s chief of staff.
Mr Campbell is also chairman of the Loyalist Communities Council (LCC).
The organisation became part of a major controversy during the last election after it endorsed some unionist candidates.
The endorsement was rejected by both Robin Swann, the current UUP leader, and his predecessor Mike Nesbitt.
Mr Campbell issued a hard-hitting statement, carried in Friday’s News Letter.
Speaking to the BBC’s Talkback programme, he said the final straws for him were the UUP’s reaction to the LCC’s endorsement of unionist candidates and the “failure to consider a proper electoral pact with the DUP”.
“My personal view is that the party has gone past a tipping point, we did have a period before where we had no MPs before, but we had a strong assembly party,” he said.
“I think the electoral dynamic in Northern Ireland has changed irrevocably following the Sinn Féin success in the pre-emptive assembly election.
“That is pointing to two largely hegemonic parties in respect to nationalist and unionist communities and it is the prime reason that voters flocked to the DUP in this [general] election.”
Mr Campbell said there had been a drift away from traditional Ulster Unionist values, with former leader Mike Nesbitt and others declaring themselves liberal unionists.
“The typical Ulster Unionist voter is a church-goer who would be largely traditional conservative in their outlook and they were being presented with, in some cases, candidates espousing a very different view on serious moral issues,” he said.
“The comfort I take in the electoral decline of the Ulster Unionist Party is that the DUP has moved largely exclusively onto Ulster Unionist policy through their acceptance of the agreement and the subsequent power-sharing arrangements and the drift of Ulster Unionism into the DUP.
“I think in the eyes of the average unionist elector the DUP is largely what the Ulster Unionist Party once was.”
When asked if he thought the DUP was now the only viable party of unionism he said: “Undoubtedly, and that’s clearly [a view] shared by the electorate.”
Ulster Unionist councillor David Browne said he did not agree that the party was finished.
“I do believe that the party has changed drastically from the party I joined around 35 years ago and I do agree with some of the comments he made around the previous leadership,” he said.
“Robin Swann is only in the job and in fairness to him I though he’s done a reasonably good job.”

TODAY we launch an appeal for much-needed funds for loyalist paramilitaries and Loyalist Communities Council (LCC).
After giving up their criminal campaign, 20 years after they last promised to give up their criminal campaign, the Re-home a Red Hand and Adopt a UDA Man (RRHAUDAM) appeals urgently need your help. For just £50,000 a year could give idle buggers like Sammy from the Shankill a community worker’s job.
It would help to pay for the three holidays a year and the top-of-the-range car which he and his family so badly need. In return, he’ll promise to enrich the culture of his community and lay off doing anyones’ knees. Obviously he’d still be good for a bit of blow (weed) but keep it to yourself. But the suddenly contrite paramilitaries aren’t looking for charity. They will be bringing important job skills to any cushy number they’re offered. They have maths skills from years of working out if Jonty has a kilo of weed how many half ounces can he knock out if he expects a 50 per cent mark up.
Or if a local businessman refuses to pay his £80-a-week protection money how many bricks will it take to do his windows. They have invaluable people skills, honed over decades of dealing with the local community – the bookies, the bar men, the travel agents, the car dealers, the wee girls in the off-licence. And all they want is the chance to give back to their community by getting the jobs few of them have ever bothered getting before. They long to experience life on minimum wage and a zero hours contract because who needs qualifications when you have an overwhelming sense of entitlement. Our appeal so far has raised £1 million from the Tony Blair’s an Angel Who’s Still Fixing the World Foundation.
It’s a tiny amount compared to the £26 million which was raised by the PIRA in their Northern Bank fundraiser but it was either that or cupcake sales for the next millennium. It’s vitally important that the paramilitaries are shown our love because otherwise they might just keep doing what they’ve always done for the last 20 years. There will be some strays from the path of peace, like Tyrone, South East Antrim, East Belfast and the UPRG who aren’t ready to leave the old ways behind. They will be humanely arrested for blatantly breaking the law, even though they’ve miraculously got away with a life of crime up to now. So please give what you can – support your local loyalist so he doesn’t have to.
