Personally I think that it would be a great misfortune for the SDLP to lose Pat Ramsey. In my experience I have always found Pat Ramsey to be a dedicated, helpful and hardworking public representative. It would seem strange to cast aside a man who is so assiduous in his work and a popular local figure within the local community.

Presumably something is happening behind the scenes ?

Pat Ramsey, popular local figure, local community.
All of the above is correct but like most of the Foyle crowd PR is very Derrycentric.

Derry politicians in particular take parochialism to extremes and thats going some for NI.

Maybe the Derry SDLP membership feel PR drew too much attention to them from the Bogside GFA losers.

"We know where you live" springs to mind.

I think Mary Bradley has announced she is standing down. SDLP will face a strong challenge from Eamonn McCann for their third seat.

EM is not getting any younger.

Probably 2011 will be his last election.

Trotskyism in the North West will never be the same after he retires.
I back Derry's Trotsky to win a seat and go all constitutional.

AFAIK Ramsey and Durkan couldn't stand the sight of each other - its more of a surprise that Ramsey got shafted in Ritchie's time rather than by Durkan himself

Ramsey won't be lost, he'd be a senior councillor at least.

Perhaps, but the second Sinn Fein seat may also be vulnerable.
