Minister Sammy Wilson in Need of Some Retail Therapy?
As rumours circulate about Sammy's possible departure from the Department of the Environment the Minister met today with members of Bushmills Townscape Heritage Initiative, Moyle District Councillors and public servants.
The party then went on a walking tour of the Main Street, talked to local shopkeepers and had an opportunity to witness neatly maintained properties as well as the ravishes of developer blight: the good, the bad, and the ugly.
I couldn't help noticing that not one of the 'DUP 4' from the 'I know of him' debacle of 2007 were in attendance. I bumped into Seymour Sweeney, developer and DUP member, later in the day but there was no sign of local DUP councillor, David McAllister, or the Paisleys, father and son. Might this indicate a possible break in the DUP mould?
