McDonnell ahead in South Belfast…

Interesting stuff in South Belfast. Unofficial figures say McDonnell is currently head towards 12,000 votes. But Spratt is still close. Watch for a recount if it’s within 500 or so. McGimpsey was described as looking as funerial as his nickname ‘the Undertaker’ on BBC N. As we said earlier Maskey is holding his vote. I’m off to the cente of town with the laptop – hoping not to miss anything overly important in the meantime.

Keep us posted below if you hear stuff in the meantime!!
