Foyle is too close to call. The turnout is high, but we don’t yet have a reliable figure for that. Willie Hay the DUP’s man in Foyle told Radio Ulster that his vote has held up but that many unionists have voted on the basis of ‘anybody but McLaughlin – but it’s too early to say how much’. There’s an unofficial estimate that it may be up 1000 DUP supporters. Can Durkan do it? We don’t know. But check out the turnout figures, 65+ and he’ll be upbeat. Less than that and they’ll be singing down in Cable Street!
