Post election Hearts and Minds…

Hearts and Minds worth watching for a number of things. One, watch the four cornered debate at the beginning. I may have heard something wrongly, but I’m fairly sure there’s a row at one point because one speaker (Dermot Nesbitt, I think) believes that one of his rivals got to make a point and he also wanted to make it. It’s possibly what made the next item a blessed relief. It features Lynda Gilbey and Eammon McCann on what keeps them going when they have little realistic hope of election. And, there’s a musical farewell to David Trimble.
Good analysis on same from Fionnuala O’Connor.
