Basil McCrea MLA and John McAllister MLA both quit the Ulster Unionist Party a couple of months ago. At the time there was a lot of talk about the pair setting up a new moderate Unionist party. I believe April was given as the month this new party would be launched. We are now of course three weeks into April and there is no sign of a new party. So have they abandoned the idea or is something else afoot? Could the duo be planning to join another party such as Alliance or the NI Tories. With only seven days left liberal unionisms likely lads will need to get there skates on in order to launch a new party this month.
