The SDLP used to take this seat and unionism has no chance of winning the seat. If sf Órfhlaith Begley wins then their will be virtually no chance of taking the seat away from SF. Is this not the moment that Unionism puts their support behind the sdlp candidate?



2017 election result:
Party Candidate Votes
Sinn Féin Barry McElduff 22,060
DUP Thomas Buchanan 11,718
SDLP Daniel McCrossan 5,635
UUP Alicia Clarke 2,253

The SDLP has never won the seat. It would make no difference if the Unionists didn’t stand & why would they want someone in Westminster to vote against their exciting plans for a brutally hard Brexit anyway?

This is unionism chance to take one of SF seats away from the party. If they do not do it now (even now it would be a hard task) then it will be a very very long time before any opportunity will come in such a strongly nationalist seat.

The individual unionist in the area will now be having second thoughts on Brexit and its a opportunity for those to possible get a candidate who may make their situation better after brexit.

SFIRA will run its campaign on the usual poisonous bread and boltcutter issues.

I would agree
Isn’t it just great to see when a decent person inadvertently creates a “duplicate” thread that they have the decency to admit it and agree that said thread should be merged into the original ..

Pity certain resident crackpots don’t have the same decency ... but not surprising unfortunately :?

Nope, the sad badtids duplicate as often as possible to try & flood the forum with their slanted sectarian bigoted nonsense ,..
