INTERESTING terminology used on BBC World Service’s World update yesterday (might be gone now, but the audio was here).

The SDLP “claims the more moderate nationalist vote” and there’s mention of “republican Sinn Fein”, which the home audience might get worked up about.
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.
