As Alan notes, Paddy Power (the people who brought you Martin McGuinness at 3/1 for the Aras) now has Alex Attwood as favourite to win. To be fair that probably reflects a good campaign for Alex, and would considerably turn the table on our crowd sourced predictions from a few weeks ago. Indeed the Irish bookmaker has brought him a hell of a long way from 14/1.
In any case, we’d like to put a standard four questions to all of the candidates, and will hope to publish those we have responses to by Friday, the eve of the election. So we’d like to hear your toughest and most challenging questions for the future leader of the SDLP. I’d like to select the four best and have them off the candidates by close of play today.
Just post them in the comment zone below
