According to a UUP source, the Fermanagh Unionist Association in Enniskillen runs a drinking club. It is understood to be the only one of its kind in Northern Ireland. The drinking club has apparently played a crucial role in the recruitment of the abnormally larger number of members within the UUP who are from the Fermanagh and South Tyrone Constituency.
Perhaps there is something for other parties to learn from the Fermanagh Unionists about membership recruitment. Cheers Tom!
It appears that “the Devil’s milk” and party discipline do not go hand in hand. I have it on good authority that the perpetrator of the assault at the first UUP executive meeting was under the influence of alcohol at the time.
