BREAKING SDLP opting out of Westminister race in North Belfast. For the first time in party’s history there will be no SDLP candidate on a general election ballot paper. Also opting out of contest in East Belfast and North Down. All aimed at maximising pro remain vote. @BBCgmu

Smart move that increases the chances of Claire Hanna taking seat in South Belfast.

Sinn Féin’s Pat Sheehan says the party’s leadership will meet today and will likely issue a “positive response” to SDLP’s decision not to run in North Belfast… keep an eye on SF not running in South Belfast

I think there is an important point worth making: the stupidity and bullying of those who put pressure on the UUP to stand aside in North Belfast has probably made it easier for the SDLP and SF to conclude their own arrangement.

There’s an argument to be made that Blair‘s brilliance as a politician was also a myopia: a complete lack of interest in economics. All he sees going wrong in Britain right now is politicians being opportunistic. But where do the opportunities come from? https://t.co/d1J1lyHlXb

Remarkable how other party leaders such as @joswinson @BorisJohnson & @jeremycorbyn can find the time to stand for parliament AND lead their respective parties, yet #Farage can't #GE2019 https://t.co/TK7TGD4ASM

Those who'd try to talk Trump supporters out of their "enthusiasm" often make the mistake of thinking the fact he's personally loathsome, sexist, racist, and a grave danger to the rule of law, the U.S. Constitution, and international alliances should be dissuasive enough. Nope. https://t.co/BBOCusc9LO

Trump comes across to Mideast leaders both friend and foe as a bandit President. The US will take the oil? Pay us and we will send US military forces? https://t.co/3mJSKDxS8J
