Northern Ireland Election Results

Well, the party's over for the Conservative Party in Northern Ireland. All of our candidates have now been eliminated. It was an improvement recent election results though - in North Down James Leslie got 2.8% and elsewhere we also saw our share of the vote increase.

Counting is still going on - one very good reason why I oppose the STV! It does look like the political scene will be dominated by the DUP and Sinn Fein, with the UUP vote dropping sharply. The Alliance look like they are picking up in some areas, and the Green Party may be on track to take a seat in North Down.
