In South Antrim , voters have only two serious candidates for Westminster. The Reverend Doctor William McCrea, politician, blow in from Mid Ulster, pastor, singer and invisible man.
The other is Daniel de Burgh Kinahan, Big House Unionist.
McCrea, in my personal experience , has done nothing for victims and precious little for anyone else.
Empey got within 1183 votes of him the last time.
Kinahan appears to have been a busy MLA. He voted for same sex marriage though his response to me on abortion was vague and evasive.
It’s dispiriting that in the twenty first century , choices are still as limited as fifty years ago.
So, with not a pro-union left wing candidate in contention, it’s Castle Upton for me, rather than Clan McCrea.
