Hermon's stand on merger is perfectly clear

Published 12/11/2009

J S McKeown from Bangor writes (Write Back, October 30) that Lady Sylvia Hermon has petulantly refused to quietly and logically explain her reasons for not supporting the Ulster Unionists' link-up with the Conservative Party.

Well, perhaps J S McKeown has been on holiday for the last two months, but I was under the impression that Lady Sylvia had made it abundantly clear on a number of occasions what her reasons were.

For example, she would lean more towards the Labour Party rather than Conservative, she was unhappy at not being consulted about the merger and she thinks it is a stupid name (which it is).

I think those three reasons make it perfectly clear why she is not happy with the merger.
