Linked.In…..or whatever its called is handy enough. Sometimes its handy to type in a name and see what comes up.
Take the Slugger O’Toole team.
As far as I can gather this seems to be “the team”.
1 Mick Fealty.
2 Paul Evans. English and as I recall former advisor to a Labour MEP. He was previously a regular on Slugger and a bit snippy (at least with me) but I tend to bring out the worst in people.
3 Quintin Oliver . awww you guessed that one. Nuff said. Advisor on Norn Iron matters to the Joseph Rowntree Foundation (based in York) since 2010. Top man in Stratagem.
4 Trevor Ringland. A leading man in Platform for Change (a lets get alongerist forum). Ex Rugby international. A very genuine person. Previously stood for UUP-Conservatives in East Belfast (East Belfast 2010) and now a member of the Conservative Party.
5 David Steven…..co-writer with Mick Fealty and Trevor Ringland of The Future of Unionism…….a paper published by you guessed it……the Joseph Rowntree Foundation.
6 Richard Delevan….seems to a former journalist now in PR and seemingly based in London.
7 Abigail Davis…..appears to be on the staff of ……..Joseph Rowntree Foundation.
The Joseph Rowntree Foundation based in York…..that chocolate money, innocent money, Quaker money.
Of course the Joseph Rowntree Foundation has no connexion to that Joseph Rowntree Reform Trust which is also based in York. The latter donated £97,000 to the Alliance Party since 2007.
IMPORTANT EDIT…..I would direct readers to the comment from Mick Fealty who takes issue with me on the accuracy of this post. As I stated “as far as I can gather this is the (Slugger) team”. My source being Mr Fealty’s LinkedIn profile. Turns out Mick Fealty does not update his profile. Actually my Facebook profile says that I am “single” but in fact I have been married since 1982. I just havent got round to updating the profile that I set up on Facebook in 1974.
I am however happy to point out that Mick Fealtys “Slugger Team 2002-present” includes an abigail Davis who was in fact inly involved in web design in Sluggers early days. She is NOT the Abigail Davis who works for the Rowntree Foundation. Glad we got that sorted out.
