Some Do Like Polls….

SOME more SDLP Westminster candidates have been announced – and not many surprises. SDLP Deputy Leader Alasdair McDonnell is to stand in South Belfast against the UUP’s Martin Smith (or maybe Michael McGimpsey). In Upper Bann the SDLP is standing Dolores Kelly against David Trimble (UUP) and David Simpson (DUP), who might cause a major upset. Dominic Bradley will carry the can for the SDLP in Newry and Armagh if he loses to Sinn Fein’s Conor Murphy.
