Doug Beattie’s no Lundy, wise up

7 0 0

Unionism spends far too much time looking for Lundies. One was “found” in Lurgan on Friday night when a noose was put around Doug Beattie’s neck.

A Lundy is a cowardly, self-serving, untrustworthy individual. Someone who poses as an ally and defender, but privately seeks to surrender.

If loyalists were determined to label anyone a Lundy — and I think it’s a negative, time-wasting pursuit — Boris Johnson would surely fit the bill better than Beattie.

False friendship and betrayal are his calling cards.

The UUP leader is not responsible for the protocol. He didn’t campaign for Brexit. He didn’t lead or prop up the government that negotiated with Brussels.
