Runners and riders.......
We're up and running - weeks to go still but the election is under way. Already news organisations are drawing up their grids, making sure there's a balance between the parties in their columns and on their programmes......
And here on Talkback we're getting ready for the Party Leaders....they'll be on air over the coming weeks answering your questions - and a few of our own. Have they got their feet on the ground? Do they know the answers to everyday questions? Price of a pint? Bag of coal?
Will it be the usual carve up - or will Northern Ireland's voters really be thinking about the economy, education, health, roads etc when they pick up that well sharpened pencil-on-the-end-of-a-piece-of-hopefully-long-enough-string?? We'll see.
And if you've questions to ask - here's next week's timetable:
April 4th Mon - Greens - Steven Agnew - April 5th Tues - TUV Jim Allister - April 6th Wed - Alliance David Ford . More to come of course - I'll keep you in touch. You can email questions - firstname.lastname@example.org; tweet: @wendytalksback; facebook - wendy austin.
Look forward to hearing from you!!
