Where Angles Fear to Tread

Northern Ireland Politics & Lost Seats

Filed under: Liveblogging, Politics, UK Politics — Tags: — Right Angle @ 12:03 am

Robinson (Northern Ireland First Minister) loses his Westminster seat. Although he still remains as First Minister as assembly is voted separately. A huge win for the Alliance Party.

Hopefully, this won’t impact the delicate negotiations currently underway in the assembly, although I fear that there will be an impact, as Robinson appears to have lost his mandate somewhat.

In other news, Labour have lost their first seat in Wales – In Arfon. Plaid Cymru have taken it with a modest 4% swing. So Labour have lost the first seat on the mainland
