Should Labour stand in Northern Ireland?

In principle, the answer should surely be yes? And as a lightly-held view, I think it would be good for Northern Ireland's politics. There is the old 'how do you get from here to there' questions and the unintended consequences.

But still, David Cameron's dance with the UUP begs the question. Here's an interview (via Slugger) with Labour's Boyd Black who is in favour of it.

I would rather have the NILP re-established, somehow.

No.

There is already A Social Democratic and Labour Party in Northern Ireland: the Social Democratic and Labour Party.

I've felt moved to respond to this question at some length on my blog. The idea seems fraught with danger to me, but may have some application in European elections....
