BBC News - UUP reject Paula Bradshaw Stormont selection bid
Not that I am the greatest fan of her but I am opposed to what not selecting her means.
I presume she has not been selected for a number of reasons - the association with the Conservatives, being a woman, not being Orange, backing McCrea over Elliott and not properly feeling the mood of the area she wishes to represent.
The UUP have no female MLAs. This might change at the next election with Overend but that would merely be the starting of a new dynasty.
Is this the beginning of a lurch to the extreme?
