Tears of joy in February 2010 … now turned to tears of sadness?

February 2010 leadership campaign post from Margaret Ritchie - the ink ran in the rain - Note that this photo is under a Creative Commons Attribution, Noncommercial, No Derivative Works License - http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/2.0/ - The original photo in better quality lives at http://www.flickr.com/photos/alaninbelfast/4336355274/Can’t believe Mick didn’t use this classic image from the February 2010 leadership election vote at the SDLP party conference to illustrate his earlier post about Margaret Ritchie’s announcement that she is to step down as party leader and also as MLA for South Down.

Apologies to Margaret who I know hates the picture 🙁
