We noted the DUP candidate Jimmy Spratt’s comment when he described a statement from the UUP’s Michael McGimpsey in South Belfast the other day as a “sign of increasing desperation”.. the same “increasing desperation” could be said to apply to SF Gerry Adams’ “analysis” of the situation in that constituency – I think that [SDLP candidate] Alasdair McDonnell has no possibility of winning south Belfast and I think that any nationalist that votes for him is a wasted vote, said Mr Adams... he declined to say whether he thought that was more applicable to SF candidate Alex Maskey’s campaign.
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.
