Sinn Fein would win according to UTV poll

At least that’s the way it is at the moment. This UTV online poll is nothing more than random straws in the wind, but it’s currently putting Sinn Fein on 56% and a McCartney sister on 37%. For once on the UTV site, the comments are worth perusing to pick up to the ambivilance felt by some nationalists over the apparent politicisation of the McCartney campaign. Mind you, the previous poll reckoned Ireland was going to stroll the Six Nations!

Thanks to John for the heads up!

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.
