Upper Bann split vote a real danger

Published 17/04/2015

In spite of the UUP's protests to the contrary, the statistics don't lie. The results in the last Assembly election in Upper Bann showed Sinn Fein 0.1% ahead of the DUP in the constituency.

With respect to Jo-Anne Dobson, unionism in Upper Bann could do without a split vote. I urge unionists to get behind David Simpson to ensure Upper Bann's voice is heard in Parliament and we don't end up with a SF MP who won't even take her seat.
