After many months of middle-aged male monopoly, the UUP has remembered that it has a female MP!
Of course, the UUP had other reasons to try to forget Hermon, not least her overt opposition to the UCUNF project.
But now she's back, it seems. What does this signify? Is she going to be reconciled with the UUP in time for the Westminster election next year? Has the UUP seen the light, and realised that without the popular Hermon, the North Down seat - their only one - is in serious danger? Without her, the UUP might have been obliged to bow to their Tory paymasters, who seem to be lining up the awful Ian Parsley as their candidate. If the UUP are reconciled with Hermon, then she pulls rank on any opportunist turncoat that the Tories can recruit.
There is still work to do, of course - not least on Hermon's own blog, which pointedly fails to inform its readers that she is, in theory at least, still a UUP MP.
