Brian's assessment

The ever-excellent Newshound had Brian Feeney’s assessment of the forthcoming election,Few constituencies changing hands. He makes an interesting comparison as to how Mark Durcan and Eddie McGrady have courted the unionist community, a group who could have a major say in the battle between Sinn Féin and the SDLP on May 5 in the respective constituencies.
He finishes with seven, possibly eight nationalist MPs.

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.
