UUP line up Nesbitt for Robinson's seat

Mike is party's choice

Victims Commissioner and ex-UTV presenter Mike Nesbitt is being lined up to stand as a UUP candidate to fill Iris Robinson’s Westmintser seat.

Ulster Unionists have dreamt up a plan for him to run for the disgraced MP’s seat in the Strangford constituency at the general election — if he agrees.

A senior party source last night confirmed that Nesbitt, who now sits on the Victims Commission, was their first choice for the race.

Nesbitt — married to UTV presenter Lynda Bryans — was tight-lipped when quizzed about entering the running.
