DUP's Spratt Vs UUP's Brat?

With the DUP declaring a candidate for the elctoral fight in South Belfast, it seems any chance of a Unionist electoral pact is dead. Few who have seen the bickering between the DUP and UUP in recent times will be surprised at the news, though Michael McGimspey is none too pleased describing the former Police Federation chief as "Splitter Spratt". While I was very confident about Michelle GIldernew's chances in Fermanagh/ South Tyrone in any case, the Sinn Féin MP now seems a shoo-in to retain her seat.
