No Comment from McClarty

Mark Devenport | 16:31 UK time, Thursday, 25 November 2010

Rumours reached us from the North Coast today that the veteran Ulster Unionist Deputy Speaker David McClarty may be considering running in next May's Assembly election as an independent. Mr McClarty wasn't picked by his party to stand again in East Londonderry. Instead the UUP confirmed their former Westminster candidate Lesley Macaulay and David Harding as their official candidates.

In the interests of reporting fact, not rumour, my colleague Martina Purdy gave Mr McClarty a call, but he wouldn't clarify the matter, responding simply with a "no comment".
