Looks like Sylvia Hermon‘s got a fight on her hands. Bob McCartney is standing down in favour of the DUP. Hermon could still win it, if she can squeeze the Alliance and take the Women’s Coalition and large chunk of the small Catholic vote in North Down. Her opponent will be local DUP MLA Peter Weir.
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.
