Meanwhile in other news…

THE leadership contest in the SDLP has disappeared off whatever low-level political radar it was on for all but party members and political anoraks.

The early surge for Margaret Ritchie seemed to have her well placed, but Alasdair McDonnell has fought back. Despite a lukewarm reception for his manifesto in some quarters, the announcement that Alban Maginness has thrown his support behind Alasdair will make the SDLP party conference in February at least interesting!

Unfortunately the reality will be that whoever emerges victorious will have to deal with the question: “So what do you think about this week’s controversy?”
