Bad day to be a unionist leader…

THE BBC is suggesting that Sir Reg is beat in South Antrim. And with Robbo stuffed in East Belfast and Jim Allister trounced by Paisley Jr, the leaders of unionism are in a bad way tonight. While the personality cult of Jim will probably continue, the UUP and DUP could well be looking new leaders in the morning. Any suggestions?
