I think I broadly agree with Ian James Parsley, the politician and business man and currently a member of the Alliance Party ( previously Alliance and previously Conservative) who opines on Slugger O’Toole that spouses are often very good advisors and excellent employees.
Mr Parsley is of course married to Mrs Parsley…Paula Bradshaw (currently Alliance Party and previously UUP) who is I understand on the Alliance Party Executive.
In the unlikely event of Mr Parsley getting elected (say it aint so) as MLA for East Antrim, he can surely only benefit from being married to Mrs Bradshaw and her excellent portfolio of skills.
In the unlikely event of Mrs Bradshaw-Parsley being elected (if not co-opted) as MLA for East Antrim, she will have Mr Parsley.

Hard to keep up.

Saw that and tweeted about it, as did Squinter. Chris Donnelly told us both that he’ll be posting about the attack later.
Certainly seems that Fealty is on an anti SF Jihad
Probably trying desperately to think up a reason to contextualise it and then blame it on the Shinners. In the meantime the silence from that quarter is deafening.
Mrs P likes to present herself as a moderate but look at her defence of attacks on Eastern Europeans and the young Catholic TV extras, both in the “village” area.
Ian seems dead on enough and refreshingly unpredictable.
Let me say this straight up: it doesn’t matter that a person changes party.
Look at Mary Lou for instance. Or Arlene Foster. Both considered highly within their parties.
Dr A McDonnell started political life in a different party from the SDLP.
Now….lets not get silly.
oh wise up.
Glad to see you saying something nice about Ian P for a change.
A stopped clock is right twice every 24 hours.
Good performance from
TEXT REMOVED. YOU CANT JUST QUOTE TWEETS AS EVIDENCE OF ANYTHING.
IF YOU WERE THERE, THEN THATS EVIDENCE.
Alan in Belfast is about to write it all up in his blog.
TEXT REMOVED. ALAN WAS INDEED THERE.
IF MARY LOU COMMENTED KON ISSUES, THEN I ASSUME OTHERS DID TOO.
