I am sure you are all up to speed with the debacle the tories and UU have got into in South Antrim. If not look here.

But it appears that the tories have surrendered and are preparing the path for Adrian to stand. Lesson? Never ever underestimate the feelings of people on the ground. Especially if they are rebellious Irish.

I thought the same myself when I heard this last night.
Watson doesn't seem to think so though. He's still on the attack calling the Tories hypocrites.

May have just been a clumsy attempt to get him to support the UUP/Tory candidate as he's on record saying he won't and urging others not to.

I reckon he'll be in the DUP soon enough.

How many have resigned from the UU in South Antrim now - what a debacle considering this was one of their greatest hopes for success

Just had a look at what Watson is saying - he is slapping it up Cameron - he is making sure everyone knows he is standing by his guns.
