Bet’s on DUP for Sunday opening

I have been calling for a number of years for the Sunday opening of bookmakers’ premises in Northern Ireland.

You can imagine my pleasure the other day when I read that the SDLP now favours such a proposal. Sinn Fein are quite hopeless on this issue. Conor Murphy ignores any communication on my part.

I am seriously considering a change in the pattern of a lifetime’s voting. I have always voted for an anti-partition candidate, but I am writing today to Peter Robinson. Dependent on his reply, I will be voting for the DUP at the next election.

With the economic down turn this is now a serious issue.

It could create a significant number of jobs and bring Ulster into line with the rest of the

UK. I will let you know how I get on with the DUP.
