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

    No Paisleys this time but the DUP vote should be solid enough. The big thing here is if Jim Allister, as we are led to believe, stands for the TUV, will he take a seat. The Westminster election suggests he would have a good chance.

    The Ulster Unionists are unlikely to make any advance and SF have a solid seat and that's it but do stand a good chance of topping the poll with it.

    SDLP should be assisted by the TUV entering the race but will be happy just to hang on to the one seat they have.

    Made up from much of the Ballymoney, Ballymena, Ballyclare and Moyle Council areas.

    Considered the heartland of the DUP but with sizeable Nationalist areas from The Glens through Dunloy to Rasharkin and large parts of the Bann Valley.

    Turn out - 54%

    No Paisleys on the ballot paper.

    Looks like SF's Daithí McKay could top the poll with Gollum Allister taking a seat.

    Declan O'Loan of the SDLP could have trouble holding on for the 6th seat against the UU.

    Fisticuffs last night at a polling station in Gracehill. TUV v DUP

    Paisley óg reckons Allister will take a seat commenting,

    Audrey Patterson TUV 668 1.7%


    Frew and Storey (DUP) and McKay (SF) elected.

    Jim Allister far from safe, a colleague says if he fails to be elected the TUV are dead. Sounds good to me.

    Paisley was elected easily last time despite a lot of noise from Jim Allister in the TUV. With an unknown candidate this time, Paisley will be under no pressure.
