Sinn Fein unilaterally withdraw posters in #FST11…

I’ve not seen anywhere near as many posters this year as in previous years. Parties seem to be either investing their cash in the kind of bespoke pitches that Chris reports of Sinn Fein’s charm offensive in the loyalist Village area of Belfast (or more likely, just avoiding the high winds).

Now the party is entering a non proliferation strategy by withdrawing posters in two electoral areas, Erne East (#LG2005) and Blackwater (#LG2005).
