DUP have put a woman in so none of the men had to play second fiddle
Also as it gives them the progressive optic - woman heading up a lead role
They've also deliberately put ELP forward despite being unelected specifically as a f**k you to Nationalists and to try and cheapen/dilute the achievement
At the end of the day they took the soup, and they will continue to do so as they only thing they care about is their own salaries, expenses and getting re-elected to stay on the gravy train
Their lack of real leadership, plan and the unionist brain drain will be their downfall

Hard to argue with any of that, but what is their strategy for the next election or do they not think that far ahead?

ELP has proven unelectable in the past, so chances of her getting in through a vote are slim enough.

100% nail on the head!

Surely that will backfire with ELP having no real creditability at the elections and with such a seasoned campaigner like MON that she will wipe the floor with her? 

I wouldn't have ELP down as a door mat either, and she could surely see through the "lets put a woman" in there attitude (which I don't think it is)
None of us are getting out of here alive, so please stop treating yourself like an after thought. Ea

I'd say they'll stick ELP in a safe seat to get her over the line.

Plus this will help her raise her profile.

I think you know the answer to that already. It seems that for a long time now they are only capable of thinking about a day in advance. Hence the mess they made of Brexit and everything else since. And it is glorious to watch.

Poots will go at the end of the term and she'll be back to the safe DUP South Belfast seat.
Doc would listen to any kind of nonsense and change it for you to a kind of wisdom.
