SDLP facing stern Westminster test

Interesting speculation as to what answer Gerry Adams might expect in the last week of the election campaign from the IRA. Whatever it is (provided there is serious substance to it), it could be the final knock out blow to the SDLP, who arguably have not fully capitalised on Sinn Fein’s two/three months on the political ropes.
However David Trimble (and, by extension, the UUP) may prove to be the most notable scalp in this election.
