The verifification process is going particularly well in South Antrim. Looks like they could be on schedule to call first in mid afternoon. DUP are confident, and the local UUP are keeping very quiet. One footnote, the UUP press team went out for a meal together last night. We’ll see later on if that was a well deserved break or an early compensation for what may have been a last meal in the restaurant at the end of the Universe!
