UUP wipe out?

Ian Paisley upped the ante in the Unionist battle for seats in the election by predicting that no UUP seat is safe. Personally I will be very surprised if the DUP are the only Unionist party with Westminster representation come May 6th however given Martin Smyth's refusual to back the candidature of Michael McGimpsey in South belfast, the Ulster Unionists could well be in for a difficult election in all their seats. Reports in today's Irish News that UKUP leader Bob McCartney is unlikely to stand in North Down gives the DUP a fighting chance in every seat currently held by the UUP.
