McDonnell is right leader for SDLP

I was shocked to see the headline 'SDLP rank-and-file fails to endorse Party Leader' in the Belfast Telegraph (November 17) following the SDLP party conference as it is not an assessment I recognise.

As a new councillor I was delighted to introduce Alasdair McDonnell before his keynote address. I first met him as a party volunteer and have always welcomed his guidance. Alasdair is a proven election winner and I've no doubt he'll leave no stone unturned to retain our South Belfast Westminster seat.
