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

    It's all about the final seat here.

    Should be 1 seat comfortably for each of the 5 big parties but the SDLP are far from guaranteed to hang on to their second.

    Alasdair McDonnell took the Westminster seat comfortably but he would have been the beneficiary of many Alliance votes to keep Unionists/SF out.

    SF will aim to get Maskey elected on the first count, potentially making the SDLP's chances slimmer. He came close last time but so transfer unfriendly was he that it took until count 10 for him to secure his seat.

    Conall McDevitt contests the seat he took over from Carmel Hanna for the first time.

    Ruth Patterson is the second DUP candidate here, she blotted her copybook recently by feigning a coughing fit in Belfast CC because someone was talking Irish. This may however help her cause.

    My favourite stat from SB; Imagine getting 22 votes and not being last!

    How's this for an alternative Ulster?

    Brian Faloon, the original drummer with Stiff Little Fingers has announced he is standing in South Belfast for People Before Profit.

    Went to see the Stiffs in the Ulster Hall in November '82, their last home gig before the first break-up and got in to see the band afterwards. Although Faloon had left them 3 years earlier, he was there and they signed everything we had including DMs which were never worn again.

    Sinn Féin

    SB has a Unionist majority but splits have allowed the SDLP to hold this seat for over 10 years. SF have their most popular candidate outside the Republican movement, Máirtín Ó Muilleoir the former Lord Mayor standing here who could damage the incumbent's chances. On the Unionist side it's all change. Jonathan 'Clanger' Bell has his first go for the DUP and the Alliance and UKIP candidates are both ex-UUP. Alliance votes have often helped the SDLP here too.
