Unionist Turmoil

The battle for the hearts and minds of the Unionist people in South belfast took another twist last night as an entire branch of the Ulster Unionist party disbanded in order to back Mr. McGimpsey's rival candidate, Jimmy Spratt. Of all the seats across the north, this seems the most unpredictable as it is not only among the closest but also has more than two possible victors. I had initially backed McGimpsey to hold the seat for the UUP, but as the campaign wears on it seems like Mr. mcGimpsey is losing ground and could be in a very vunerable position.
