UKIP to blunfrt into Northern Ireland

UKIP has announced that it intends to put up candidates in Northern Ireland, contesting 7 seats in the Stormont elections in May next year.

UKIP's policy of replacing the 108 Northern Ireland Assembly Members with 18 dual mandate Westminster MPs would throw a stone into the pond of the province's fragile peace process.

Whatever one thinks of Sinn Fein, it would exclude Norther Ireland’s largest party from the governance of the Province and upset the careful step by step peace process that is still underway.
