Cunningham: split vote line is nonsense…

Martin Cunningham, who is looking for a seat in South Down has said that accusations that his candidature is endangering a nationalist seat is ludicrous:

Going by that logic the SDLP and Provisional Sinn Fein shouldn’t run against each other as their policies and political positions are virtually identical. The two constitutional nationalist parties are running on totally different platforms than I am, they are running in support of British policing, I am running in complete opposition to it. They are running to restore the institutions of partition, I am running against partition and the institutions set up by the latest partition treaty.
