Ulster Unionist leader Mike Nesbitt has raised the possibility of an electoral arrangement with the SDLP ahead of next year’s General Election.

In an interview with News Letter columnist Alex Kane, one of Mr Nesbitt’s sharpest critics, the former journalist said about the possibility of electoral deals: “Would there be a conversation to be had with the SDLP? Yes, possibly.”

He also offered an olive branch to nationalism, suggesting that Stormont should contain some symbols of nationalist history alongside the famous statues of Lords Carson and Craig.
