Charles Kennedy, former leader of the Liberal Democrats, flew into
Belfast today to demonstrate his support for Alliance Party candidates.
There was a media scrum in front of Belfast City Hall, before a team of
us candidates and supporters walked down Donegall Place for some midday
popped out of my office for the occasion, with my work colleagues
unawares of my mission. I was glad to be able to attend to show
support, and to meet regular shoppers to get the Alliance message
I was pleased with the media turnout and coverage we received for
the event. If only Charles hadn’t brought the rain showers with him!
