To be unlocked at 10pm - they'll presumably be counting later than that, but that's not the point.

I may conceivably reconsider.

Knowing me it's more likely than not.

General rumours/reports of the UUP performing poorly.

Rumour that Mr Robinson may top the poll in Belfast East.

Anno Lo (Alliance) may top poll in Belfast South.

SF reported to be outdoing SDLP in South Down and heavily so in Fermanagh-S Tyrone.

Suggested that more than a few SF transfers in West Belfast are going to the DUP rather than SDLP.

...And reports of vice-versa happening in West Tyrone (!)

Will have to be seen in the results to be believed, for me.

Possibility of SF gain in North Belfast.

UUP struggling in South Belfast, possible DUP gain.
SDLP second seat might be in danger there as well.

4th SF seat in Mid Ulster a possibility, likely to be competing with UUP and TUV for the final seat.

Listening to the BBC NI livestream. Mostly because I just happen to find Ulster accents quite beautiful.

Nope. Same candidate as last time (2.7% in 2007).
Possibly benefitting from the UUP's apparent general downturn.

And we finally have some first counts!

But the BBC has decided in their infinite wisdom not to publish them in a usable format, so I don't have them.

First Declaration in NI today...

First Count in Newry & Armagh


Should be a fairly straightforward 3 SF, 1 UUP, 1 SDLP, 1 DUP

Rather poor vote split by SF, but one presumes the Murphy surplus will wind it's way to Brady over the coming counts.
