Alliance triumph in the East Belfast

Naomi Long of the Alliance Party beat the First Minister of Northern ireland Peter Robinson in East Belfast. This is a huge achievement for someone who served the area also in Belfast City Council. Peter Robinson has suffered repeated humiliation being trumped by a toyboy recently. The reputation of impropriety by his wife at council level and the whole Swish Family Robinson expenses jamboree has got to have had a huge effect.

David Ford MLA of Alliance is the new Justice Minister in the Northern Ireland and now the Alliance has a Westminster MP in contrast to the UUP. A huge step forward for Northern Ireland.
