Party manœuvres, fighting the last election, and who knows what will happen over coming weeks.

November 6, 2019

Political Parties are on manoeuvres, heading into an election. In Northern Ireland local Parties all try to beat (up on) the DUP as a means of making themselves relevant, not actually offering anything new, positive or coherent. While across the UK the outcome of the election might offer a Conservative Government that rushes the Boris version of Brexit through before the 31 January, or not. The election to 'deliver' on Brexit might not deliver on very much.

The leader of the Ulster Unionist Party announced he was leaving his role in due course. The Rabble Alliance in Westminster, all powered up and nowhere to go? Party Conference season's one big issue, barely mentioned in the news reports or election pitches.

@3000Versts and @thedissenter take on politics and stuff in Northern Ireland, and elsewhere. Unionist perspective of course, but hopefully a bit wider and worldly view . 

Episode one very much a trial (total experiment), with an unarticulated word or two here and there. 

Inevitably, topics are 'Backstop or go' and 'David Cameron, hero or villain?'. Only about 20 minutes. Let us know what you think.
