Less than a week ago, an Alliance Party Councillor ….Patrick Clarke (Down Council) made it all the way to the front page of the “Sunday Life” newspaper.
A sordid little story………seemingly involving his “Twitter” announcement of his engagement to a woman ……which was a bit er premature. Cllr Clarke…….so far as I am aware…..is still a member of the Alliance Party. All enquiries (according to Cllr Clarke) should be addressed to the Press Office at Alliance Party HQ.
Those Press Officers at Alliance Party HQ are going to be busy people. A Councillor in North Down has just resigned from the Party. Apparently Cllr Adam Harbinson has quit over the issue of Gay Marriage.
Apparently he has shown up at the DUP Conference and might be defecting. Ironically Harbinson was co-opted to replace veteran Cllr Tony Hill who died some months ago.
Apparently Andy Muir, the “leader” of Alliance in North Down thinks that Harbinson should now resign from the Council because he “has no moral authority”. I dont know how Muir feels about the Alliance Party having the moral authority to have TWO Executive seats from 52,000 votes while UUP have one from 90,000 votes and SDLP have one from 93,000 votes.
Of course Alliance Party are always proclaiming their position on the high moral ground. Hypocrites.
Ha Ha Ha…….Paddy Clarke HAHAHA.
