I see Brian Walker the unionist (I hesitate to say “liberal unionist”) commentator on Slugger O’Toole has drawn attention to an article by potty-mouthed “liberal unionist” journalist Newton Emerson in one of todays papers.
Seemingly Newt welcomes the collapse of the UUP and SDLP as a means of bolstering the “middle ground” (that would be the Alliance Party).
It has long been my belief that there is an agenda …shared by key Slugger contributors and their allegedly influential backers to bolster the Alliance Party. Walker’s dwelling on Newt’s article does little to make me re-consider my analysis.
I think we can look forward to more of the same kinda attacks on the SDLP by Emerson.
The game plan of the letsgetalongerists is to undermine SDLP and UUP.
Clearly the UUP is imploding……..and it was certainly true that SDLP was in decline. SDLP, I think most would agree have had a pretty good year. While Newt cries crocodile tears for Samuel Brush (DUP councillor), I wonder if the SDLP revival is really whats needling Emerson.
