On hearts and minds tonight…

Hearts and Minds tonight assumes the role of warm-up act to the biggest weekend in Northern Ireland’s politics, or another anti-climax. Not giving much away, we suspect, will be Sinn Fein’s Mitchel McLaughlin, there’s the latest commercial competition between Belfast and Lisburn, and the return of David Vance in the If you ask me slot.

A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
