Thread: Alliance councillor resigns and to jump ship to DUP?

  1. #1

    Default Alliance councillor resigns and to jump ship to DUP?

    DUP will be delighted with this one not sure about Alliance voters though.

    Looks like there is trouble in Alliance over gay marriage, abortion and flag issues.

    North Down Alliance Cllr resigned last night. Expected at DUP conference today

    Adam Harbinson confirms he's left Alliance but not that he's joining DUP 'thinking about it'

    He was only co-opted to be councillor so without electoral or party mandate he'll surely have to step down from council?

    With all that's going on in the world how can you get so exercised over "gay marriage" that you feel the need to resign? Pretty skewed priorities.

    You'd have to wonder what he was doing in Alliance in the first place.

    Oh there is quite a few anti-gay marriage types in Alliance, they just don't say much on the issue.
    Love me. Cherish me. I'm a unionist.
