    It's tactical voting.
    In the last 2 Westminister elections in South Belfast Sinn Fein never polled over 3,000 votes.

    Have you figures for the Locals? I'd be surprised to see SF come anywhere near 7500 first preference votes where there would not be much tactical voting.

    Here are the figures for the 2007 assembley elections - SDLP 8,127 (26.8%, +3.9%) 2 seats , SF 3,996 (13.2%, +0.6%) 1 seat

    So if we take that into account onbly 1,000 SF voters will vote McDonnell for Westminister - or it could be said that 1,000 SDLP voters will vote SF for the assembley elections

    Note to self : must check figures before sounding like a know all while actually being wrong !
    Must check the locals though. I'd say you would be right about less tactical voting and would give a more accurate picture of the numbers.

    Stop apologising for rudeness and wrongness moss, you're destroying my vision.

    If dreams were lightning, thunder was desire, this whole place would have burned down, a long time ago.
