UCUNF treated the local electorate with contempt. As did Peter Robinson. Both crashed and burned this evening.
A fascinating evening for political anoraks. But also some encouraging signs of progress. In particular, Naomi Long in East Belfast. I may not agree with Alliance policies (and Naomi, along with 2 other local women MPs, would be considered left of centre) but it is very encouraging to see a candidate standing for non-sectarian politics being elected in what used to be a solid DUP constituency.
