DUP's dinosaurs to embarrass us at Westminster

Published 06/05/2015

Objectively, I believe that the Union is good for Northern Ireland and invariably I vote unionist.

But, on this occasion, because, as a liberal-minded person, it pains me to think that my representation in Westminster from next week might be almost exclusively by men of the religious Right who have a reputation for homophobia, an ambivalence about women's rights, and some of whom appear to have doubts about the existence of dinosaurs.

I blush at how the English might view us.
