Was Slugger right?

It doesn’t do to trumpet an accurate forecast too loudly, but this one on Slugger from last February is worth re-visiting briefly. In light of the Westminster results it highlights the success of Sinn Fein in limiting the damage to its election campaign – from the McCartney murder and the Northern Bank raid. Although it also seems the ‘yellow vote’ (of the as yet uncaptured middle classes) was indeed shaken rather than stirred by events earlier this year.
