Wells has been deselected according to media reports, so he has little choice other than to stand as an independent should he wish to run.  He has no concerns anyway, as he seems to be a constant contributor to the Nolan show, along with Bryson and Jim Allister.

Jim will probably continue with Nolan get introduced as former DUP MLA and commentator/DUP member and commentator to sound relevant.

Not that its any odds.

Did Gareth Gordon not say towards the end of The View last night that it wasn't completely confirmed yet. Something to do with having to go to the relevant committees in south Down for approval.

Could be (and hopefully will be!) and messy one yet, if the local electorate back Wells.

He may join the growing queue of them. McCausland, Little-Pengally, Tim Cairns and now possibly Jimbo.  Not sure what value any of them add with their 'insight'. Just trot out the party line.

BBC saying Poots is putting his name forward in South Down.  Squeezed out of his own patch by Jeffrey, and Jim Wells will go nuts. They are like rats on a sinking ship.

Wells might make room for Poots, he would not budge for Jeffrey.
Wells backed Poots leadership plot so there’s a friendship there, or is it a betrayal by Poots?

Whichever, there are elements in South Down that might see Poots as a fitting replacement for Wells in a way Jeffrey would not be.
It is still strange though if Jeffrey cannot run in his home place and has to drive Poots out of his home place.

They don’t add any value, in fact they are worse.  Pengelly and Cairns come on spouting the DUP line, and if they are asked a tricky question, they say “well of course I’m no longer with the party so can’t comment”.  Waste of time.

If he crawls back to Lagan Valley that will be shameless.

Sure Arlene is retiring, is she not? He can try Fermanagh.

Indeed, what does Pootsie do now ... was prepared to walk from his home constituency, but now isn't wanted in south Down ... they're some outfit.  This election can't come soon enough.

I am surprised he didn’t try North Down, Alex Easton stepped down from the party an is sitting in stormont an independent I think?? Tho I do think if DUP ran 3 in Lagan Valley they could get them elected with Donaldson on the ticket. Donaldson has always had strong personal vote in that area.

Alex Easton is not the sharpest knife in the drawer but he works incredibly hard for his constituents and for that reason he is very popular and a poll topper. I would expect him to get elected because of his strong personal vote and this constituency’s past history of electing independents.
Careful now

Irish Sea border checks to cease from midnight tonight under instruction from Edwin Poots and the DUP. Another shit show.
