DUP could lose few more to UUP.
So when you say "anti Brexit party who will represent the people", even if your predictions come true, you're just talking about in two constituencies. They'll be even less representative of "the people of Ulster" than the DUP ffs.

The whole DUP UUP dynamic could be very interesting but I think Alliance will win a couple of seats.

Remainers will hold the majority of seats in the north

A lot of moderates not standing citing online abuse of themselves and family.
Soubry on NewsNight last night detailed her own harrowing experiences.

Going to be a very nasty campaign.

Nasty indeed.


Under the FPTP system the Tories could lose almost 20% of the vote but still gain seats.

Well, having spent a few years in the UK until four years ago, I still have a vote there so will be voting for the party that I think has the best chance of beating the Tories.

Who'd that be in your constituency BBJ?

Don't you have to be British citizen to vote if no longer resident there??

British citizens living abroad may vote in UK general elections, referendums and European Parliament elections for up to 15 years after leaving the UK. However, they may only do so if they were registered to vote in the UK while living there.

DUP putting pressure on UUP to stand aside in north Belfast to protect Dodds from Finucane, it is possible UUP may demand DUP give Tom Elliott a free run v michelle gildernew Fermanagh sth tyrone, Colum eastwood could retake Foyle seat from SF,

Aiken will fold. He clearly is trying to dictate terms to the DUP by scaring the living proverbial out of them. An electoral pact even if only in specified seats is still on the cards.

Even if they do, Dodds may be in trouble anyway. No UUP candidate in 2017 either and the margin was tight enough.
Foyle there for the taking for SDLP. Aontú fielding a candidate here will make only small difference but could be significant in such a tight constituency.
