Feeney on Westminster elections

Nuzhound has a good article by Brian Feeney today on the outlook for the peace process in the run-up to the Westminster elections.

If recent opinion polls are anything to go by, the elections will confirm the status quo established in November 2003, that is, a completely polarised society where the two communities are drifting even further apart. If anything, the elections will show a hardening of attitudes with the UUP likely to lose East Antrim and Trimble’s own seat in Upper Bann under threat. On the nationalist side Sinn Féin will gobble up Newry/Armagh and the SDLP leader faces a do or die struggle in Foyle.

It’s also picked up my own article for the Irish World on the implications for the process of the election result on this side of the water.
