The result from the GE in June:

Barry McElduff (SF)            22,060        50.7%
Thomas Buchanan (DUP)    11,718        26.9%
Daniel McCrossan (SDLP)     5,635         13.0%
Alicia Clarke (UUP)              2,253          5.2%   
Stephen Donnelly (All)        1,000           2.3%
Ciaran McClean (Green)         427           1.0%
Barry Brown (CISTA)             393           0.9%

Majority                            10,342        23.8%

Turnout                            43,675        68.2%

On these figures it would take something earth shattering for SF to lose this seat.  McElduff got more than 50% of the vote.

What would happen if the candidate was to be a victim of the Omagh bomb running on a respect/reconciliation ticket? 

The SF vote maxed out in 2017, while in WT many voters opposed to SF no longer vote as it is pointless on a split vote trying to have their preferred candidate elected, only core non-SF voters turn out. 

There is plenty of scope to increase the non-SF vote if there was a prospect of sending a strong message to the politicians that the sectarian nonsense has no future. Someone like Stanley McComb would be capable of drawing a considerable non-partisan vote and would highlight the case for the victims of the Omagh bomb in their campaign for a proper inquiry.

Like West Belfast, West Tyrone has gained nothing from its SF representation in government in Belfast and elected to Westminster.  It has lost the acute hospital to FST and the A5 will begin at the other end in Foyle instead of an extension to the A4 dual carriageway (another serious accident at Garvaghy on Saturday night) due to decisions by SF ministers seeking party votes in other constituencies.  No new employment to replace the downgrading of the lost civil service jobs and at the Education Authority.  Yet SF supporters continue to return representatives every time, strange.


Do you have any facts to back any of this up?

The loss of the hospital and the change in the building of the A5 are facts.  Decisions taken by SF ministers are facts.  No new employment brought to replace jobs taken away by DUP-SF government by borrowing money to make people redundant are facts.  EA downgrading of WELB employment in Omagh a decision taken by SF minister is a fact.  SF supporters voting in SF candidates every time despite gaining nothing in terms of jobs or roads to the West and losing health facilities is a fact. Highest votes achieved in an election by SF in WT in 2017 elections is a fact.  Speaking to others who live in the constituency who do not support SF they are despondent at the lack of progress in health and employment and many tel me they no longer see a point of voting, others say they vote to stop their vote being stolen, that a fact.

Stanley McComb or another similar person of integrity standing in election against SF as a victims representative would beat SF, that's my opinion.

Not a chance

That's very sad. A very good friend of mine is a Coventry fan, and I remember in the mid 80s the chant he used to sing incessantly.

"Nice one Cyrille, Nice one son,
Nice one Cyrille, let's have another one"

was that originally for Cyril Knowles of Spurs? Regis was good... very strong. Sad he is gone so young. RIP

No chance of a  DUP politician resign after many of their shameful outbursts.

By all accounts Tyrone still playing that defensive sh*te doesnt bode well for the real money in the months ahead.

+ 44 so far in 4 games. Conditions brutal for football today. Maybe u should go to a game and judge for yourself rather than rely on second hand info. That's if your even from Tyrone.

still recovering from the Dublin game...

Lynch mobs lynch.These groups rightly set traps for paedophiles,snare them,expose them to the general public and hand them over,unharmed,along with overwhelming evidence to the Police.

This has worked very well in the case of an RTE Sports producer and led him to losing his job and shortly a custodial sentence.If these groups didn't exist,this guy would never have been caught.

or if Sean Brady was their boss

Do it for self promotion, yet they assume false names and keep themselves well off camera!😂😂😂😂😂 Some totally stupid people here.

More like they're showing the useless police up. As I say they are shaming paedophiles and fully exposing them,giving good warning to the public at large,regardless whether  the useless police and farcical legal system ultimately fail to get a conviction.That's their main benefit.They have enormous public support,to the  extent now if the were banned there'd be a General Public outcry.

says he who defends the catholic church institution for the systematic cover-up of child rape. Ussuns and themmuns

Pundits eulogising about Moyes great record at Everton.... am I missing something? What did he win? Got to Cup final went ahead in first minutes and lost, Cup semi-final went ahead v Liverpool and lost, got to Champs league qualifier and lost. Moyes success at Everton is a myth and shows how ambition went through the floor... remember Wigan and Portsmouth won Cups despite the big four or five. Royle won a trophy, Kendall was a legend... Moyes was a bluffer who settled for mediocrity and Everton still have that mindset.

Why don't they target white collar crime?
Even murderers look down on paedophiles. Maybe it has something to do with that. And the serious stuff keeps on happening.

Worrying comment sir... paedophilia is as serious as it gets

"He has a history of putting things on his head"

He is a public figure. He should drop the childishness

can't disgree with that but a far cry from making joke about Kingsmill massacre
