Another one bites the dust

The sole elected representative of the Newtownabbey Ratepayers Association, Billy Webb, has announced that he is joining the Alliance Party. Given that the press officer listed on the Association's website, former councillor John Blair, has also (re)joined Alliance, I reckon that's it for one of Northern Ireland's smaller (and more harmless) political groups. Alliance has not been doing badly for new recruits recently.
