In a radio interview this morning Basil McCrea was declaring his interest in the affairs of the North-West and the importance of Party HQ listening to the needs of that area. He then declared there were 19,000 Unionist voters in Foyle (13.56 secs in).
From the recent elections this seems a very hard figure to justify with the Unionist vote being between 5700-9000 votes in elections held from 2005 to 2010. However, from the census figures that isn't far off the Protestant population. So was it a lack of local knowledge, a mistake or was Basil being not quite so civic?
