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

    There will be a change here this time around with the news that Independent Kieran Deeney has decided not to stand. The local GP was once a poll topper and his substantial vote may help the SDLP to claim back a seat having missed out the last time with wildly over-optomistic vote management.

    Expect the 3 Shinners to romp home again.

    More shenanigans here; The SDLP messed up big stylee last time running 3 candidates and getting none elected.

    This time they were taking no chances and have gone for just the one, Joe Byrne.

    However, former MLA Eugenne McMenamin has left the party in protest and has decided to run as an independent pro-beard, anti-moustache candidate.

    Thon boy has a head on him that wouldn't have looked out of place behind Arthur Scargill on a picket line. His appearance alone makes him more radical than the shinners.
    "Do not be misled by the promises of politicians. Remember that the whole history of Ireland is a record of betrayals by politicians and statesmen, and remembering this, spurn their lying promises and stand up for a United Ireland - an Ireland broad based upon the union of Labour and Nationality." - James Connolly.

    BBC reporting that SDLP could lose seat to SF.

    That would be remarkable as the SDLP don't have a seat to lose.

    SF tally has

    Buchanan 4483
    Bresland 4257
    Hussy 3585
    Byrne 3147
    Alliance 917
    McGowan 1035
    McMenamin 997
    McElduff 5966
    Doherty 5718
    Boyle 5539
    McAleer 3377

    Again, I don't know the quota but it's fierce tight going on those numbers. The SDLP needs the transfers to fall their way. Byrne behind all 4 SFers on 1st count.
