I would not on principle, however, be voting for Lord Empey.
Here's what he said not that long ago:
Double-jobbing and kick-backs are not what this Party is about.I don't know how many Tescos' vouchers the Lords are able to claim but I do know that it meets for 140 days every year. Which means if Lord Empey does retain his Assembly seat, then he will be trying to be in two places at once if he hopes to do the two jobs he has been elected and selected for. Or is there another interpretation that I'm missing out on here?
We are about public service - putting the people of Northern Ireland first.
During 2009 the Ulster Unionist Party fought and won the battle over double jobbing.
We set the pace, exposed the unjustifiable behaviour of those trying to be in two or three places at once, munching their way through £400 of food every month.
