Feeney: SDLP needs to address

It’s probably fair to say that Brian Feeney isn’t much liked inside the SDLP these days. He is however a shrewd observer of nationalist politics. He told the panel at Slugger goes Live! that Mark Durkan’s fate would depend on his ability to get the Culmore Road voters out to vote. In the end it did, and for once left the egg on the face of Sinn Fein who called it for themselves several days in advance. But Feeney argues, one heroic performance does not a revolution make.
