Prodiban at the Polls

Today will see the first electoral test for the "Prodiban" AKA Traditional Unionist Voice (TUV) Movement.

This motley crew of flat earthers and bigots, led by the morally questionable Jim Allister, are contesting a by-election in Dromore.

The by-election was caused by the resignation of former Rugby player Tyrone Howe.

This is the same Jim Allister who was not opposed to power sharing with Sinn Féin; he just wasn't prepared to do it before last August.

So with that testing period a thing of the past what does the Prodiban actually stand for exactly?

Keith Harbinson is the Prodiban candidate and he will be facing Carol Black of the UUP and Paul Stewart of the DUP. Those three are the main contenders for the seat.

I have no idea who will win this irrelevant contest and to be quite honest I don't care.

This place has moved on and the sooner the Prodiban and others like them learn to accept that the better.
