SDLP sending mixed signals…

Just had a report that in one Glengormley suburb the SDLP’s vote management strategy is getting dangerously loose, with posters calling for No 1 votes for Noreen McClelland and Thomas Burns on alternate lamp posts… That’s not the way to do it guys!! Interestingly, Eastwoods are refusing to give a price on either candidate, but are giving David Ford an evens chance to take back his seat, and have Derry import Mitchel McLaughlin at 5/3 on…

Adds: I’ve been told that the reason there is no price is because Eastwoods are reluctant to give prices on candidates who substantially rely on vote management.
