Sun is shining, the road is clear?

In contrast with the mist and rain of 24th November, it’s a glorious day in Belfast this morning. A good sign? Things were slow early this morning in Holywood but there was already a trickle of early morning voters. The question remains for those at work, will the draw of Coronation Street and the Celtic match prove greater that the call to decide the fate of our politicians. Rumour has it that Sinn Fein are sending buses to the pubs of West Belfast to nip supporters to the polls.
