Trimble loses out in Upper Bann by 5000

UUP leader David Trimble loses Upper Bann by over 5000 votes to DUP candidate David Simpson. Not the first Party Leader since Ramsay McDonald to lose his seat.. but a massive blow to the UUP, and to David Trimble personally. He’s likely to follow the example of Michael Howard and step down as party leader after this… step forward Lady Sylvia?
