Time to cut Sylvia adrift

Jeff Peel, no supporter of the Conservative and Ulster Unionist alliance, has produced this report of Sylvia Hermon's speech to the North Down branch of the SDLP.

Given that the UUP has a Westminster electoral pact with the Conservative party you can see the significance.

Hermon is rabidly anti-Conservative. It is not out of principle. She is New Labour through and through. A champagne socialist whose tribal hatred of the Tories has obscured the fact that they now carry a more progressive vision for Britain.

This woman has been indulged for long enough. It is high time that she is cut loose and called for what she is. If Hermon has any honesty at all she will make clear her affiliation to the discredited New Labour government.

From the outset of UCUNF I've expressed some sympathy with genuine socialists like Chris McGimpsey, who are nevertheless unionists, but whose traditional Labour affiliations will not reconcile them even to the modern Conservative party. I have no sympathy for Sylvia Hermon, a part time MP infatuated by Tony Blair and Gordon Brown.

Whether the electorate in North Down has a reputation for independence or not, it is surely not sympathetic to the current Labour party. Indeed, I believe that North Down has been exceptional in Northern Irish politics precisely because it is similar to other British constituencies.

So let us not concern ourselves any more with Sylvia Hermon's take on UCUNF. We have heard enough from her overwrought, Dianaesque theatrical falsetto.

What is the delay? Deal with Sylvia Hermon.

well if hanging out with 'themmuns' doesn't put her out of favour with a UU constituency association I don't know what will.

Will it be likely North Down gets a three way choice between left wing Lady Hermon, Tory Parsley and the DUP?
