#AE11 Prediction competition…

For years Nicholas Whyte’s prediction competition has been a fixture in every Northern Irish election… For the second year in a row, he’s working with Stratagem who are offering a prize to the winner of their very own Ian Knox cartoon… You can make your entries for the Stratagem competition here, but if, like me, the big numbers don’t come so easily, you might try out this great site from whitebox.ie, which takes you carefully through each constituency and corrects your faulty maths as you go along. It is truly a thing of technical beauty.
