Horseman contends that Gerry Adams probably has shorter odds than any other candidate in the western world. I thought that was a pretty tall order, but turns out, he might be right. Gerry actually has better odds than Gordon Brown of getting back to parliament, and is no more likely than David Cameron to lose his seat.
The question of what benefit West Belfast has derived from making Gerry one of the UK’s safest MPs, is of course one we could debate for hours.
