I am indebted to “Hoboroad” for the link to the Alliance Party scandal. Basically a sub group of activists asking easy questions of their candidates on radio phone-ins. Many will find it difficult to believe that the Party of Saint Naomi, Blessed Paula and Archangel Stewart would stoop to such a shabby tactic.
The tactic might be shabby but it is the kinda thing that works. If an Alliance big wig is on the radio for an hour, it is agood idea to fill up as much air time as possible with friendly questioners and easy topics.
Obviously the callers dont identify themselves as Alliance Party members and a bad idea to ask a follow up question like “what are we having for dinner tonight….and call at Tesco and bring home a bottle of milk with you”.
In its own way, it is the same kinda scandal as the DUP NOT answering questions.
I am looking forward (possibly in vain) to the Slugger O’Toole thread on the Alliance Party scandal. No doubt the “secret” Alliance Facebook group would challenge any idea that this is a scandal….because Alliance dont do scandals.
At least thats one problem I dont have on this Blog.
