SWOTing the parties: Threats to the SDLP…

Okay, we’re just processing all the material we’ve gathered on the DUP and hopefully will be producing a shorthand analysis on that for further comment later today. The idea is to get away from careless opinion and to provoke more thoughtful long term responses. Today and tomorrow, I want to focus, in reverse order this time on the SDLP’s strategic position. Please note, this is a controlled exercise. So the comments on this thread are not for debate or discussion, just for on topic contributions. Apart from anything else even short casual asides makes things difficult to process when we try to crunch the ‘data’ so to speak. So please don’t take it personally if I remove of edit your contributions… So give us your bullets on the Threats to the SDLP:
