On Radio Ulster, and only in partial jest, Jeffrey Donaldson pointed out that he and his former colleague David McNarry joked about them both being Chelsea supporters and finished the point off with the suggestion that as Chelsea had waited 50 years to win the English soccer Premiership, so it would take the UUP fifty years to come back from this defeat. Ouch!!
