UUP leader Mike Nesbitt tries Eamonn Mallie impression

Mike Nesbitt has escaped the curse of a Devenport victory prediction and won by an even bigger margin than this humble scribe expected. My analysis of the challenge facing the new UUP leader appears elsewhere on the main website.
The Ulster Unionists knew they were buying a media personality, but did they know they were getting a trainee impressionist?
It seems to me that in this doorstep by the lifts in the Ramada Hotel in south Belfast, Mike decided to attempt an impromptu impersonation of veteran broadcaster Eamonn Mallie.
So did Mike get Eamonn off to a tee? Judge for yourself.
