Ian Butler -Alliance Party- Mid Ulster 2010 UK Election

From the 2010 Westminster Election. An election leaflet from Alliance Party candidate in Mid Ulster Ian Butler. Ian Butler polled 397 votes and lost his deposit.
It was though a successful election for the party as they had their first MP Naomi Long Elected. Of the material I have from the election (I’ve stuff from all the parties that contested in the North) the Alliance were the only ones to have anything other than English or Irish on their leaflets (I didn’t see any Ulster Scots anywhere). There are a number of languages on their leaflet, of which I think includes some Chinese (Cantonese?) and Polish.
Many thanks to the sender



David Harding -Conservative and Unionist -Foyle 2010 UK Election

From the 2010 Westminister Election, a leaflet from Conservative and Unionist candidate David Harding running in Foyle. David Harding polled
1,221 votes (3.22%) and lost his deposit.
In the leaflet a lot of emphasis is put on the partnership between the UUP and the Ulster Unionist Party and how ‘for the first time in a generation, people in Northern Ireland can have a decisive say in who forms the next UK government.’
Problem of course being that it may now be the DUP who have that say.
Harding is pictured all over Derry with a grey haired lady, anyone know who she is?
