Two good for EU

Back in April comments on this thread about the now unlikely FF/SDLP merger touched on potential European election candidates. Reader ‘Crow’ correctly called Diane Dodds as the DUP contender and also put Nuala O’Loan in the frame as the SDLP candidate.

Of course Alban Maginness was actually selected by the SDLP but Suzanne Breen has claimed in the Tribune (using unnamed ‘sources’ so take whatever salt dose you feel appropriate) that he was very much 2nd choice and Mark Durkan personally approached Nuala O’Loan on becoming their candidate.
