Ervine rounds on independent Kennedy

David Ervine rounded on Liam Kennedy, who is standing on a Human Rights platform in Gerry Adams’ West Belfast constituency, saying: “Liam Kennedy seems to be saying, in his professorial tones, David Ervine has ability but must try harder. That man does not have the ability to mark my work, because he wouldn`t know what I do in a day”. Slugger will be seeking a ringside seat at what looks like it could be a lively debate on Thursday.
