Itís the beginning of the end for the Union.
The Scottish referendum was 2014. At the time the Unionists barely won by assuring voters that the Union was the rational choice. And 2 years later England lost the plot.

FT in Derbyshire

ďHe said the Conservatives must now prove they are the party of the working class by investing in the NHS and improving public transport outside London.Ē

The Tories havenít got a notion.
All we can expect is more chaos

Wanted.  Forwards to take frees.
Not fussy.  Any sort of ability will be considered

SF vote seems well down % wise constituency by constituency (bar NB), not great either for the DUP. With knuckles firmly wrapped for both parties and influence gone in the UK the return of Stormont is a certainty.

Is it well down because of the pact?
Anything I post is not the view of the County Board!! Nobody died in the making of this post ;-)

Nigel Dodds is replacing Jim Wells on the Nolan show. Good luck with your next venture Jim.

SF and The DUP routed. A clear message sent. Get back to work.
More nationalist MPs yes, but a broad spectrum. Claire Hanna isnít in the same circles as Mickey Brady. But a good night for progressive positive politics.

Stormont will be up and going again very soon, SF and DUP have no influence whatsoever now with Tory majority.

Would love to see SF and SDLP step aside in Lagan Valley next time out to see if Alliance could steal in on Sir Jeffrey.

Good result for Nationalists seat wise due to the Brit 1st past the post system but still behind on votes (36% to 41%).
1 BIG CUP and 1 Cupeen so far....

Woeful day for Unionism, they need to reevaluate and reform but I don't think they are capable of either. No strategic plan or vision for the future but unionism by its very nature is negative, defensive and fearful so I'm not sure what they can do to stem the tide. Huge win for Finucane who fought a very good campaign, never took the bait in getting involved in the dirty politics and was rewarded at the polling booths, he is the future of SF. Eastwood has probably been SDLP's best leader since Hume and if Irish unity is to be realised it will need a strong SDLP to sell it to middle ground voters.
