Earlier this week Jim Molyneaux the former Leader of the UUP died. He was Leader from 1980 something to 1990 something (I couldnt be bothered looking up Wikipedia). He was a politically quiet man and (seemingly) personally a courteous man. His sole function seems to have been to keep the UUP relevant against the rising tide of Paisley’s DUP. He was MP for South Antrim for many years.
He was really a relic from 1950s and 1960s unionist supremacy. He had the look of a particuarly depressed undertaker.
