Upper Bann is the one to watch…

Mark Devenport is on the money, when he takes a nod from the bookies and suggests that David Trimble’s constituency is the one to watch. We agree, and when Slugger hits the ground running this week, the Trimble constituency is one of those we’ll be keeping the closest eye on. The UUP leader himself is rather sanguine that in his own back yard he can buck the poll trends and actually increase his 2,000 majority.

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.
