  • Darrell Monteith

    For now, …………. Mrs Long is very unlikely to be a long term fixture in East Belfast.

  • Michaelhenry

    yes she can, first african american voted in to power, first female voted into power, in east belfast.

  • SDLP Man

    Oh, for God’s sake Darrell let the woman enjoy a brilliant victory. I’m not of her party, but hers was a thrilling achievement by any standards and as someone who was at Newtownards last night the only comparator was with Joe Hendron’s victory in West Belfast in 1992. She deserves her place in the sun. Even PR was gracious in his concession speech.

    Brilliant victory, …or protest vote against something concocted by the media?

    I`m sure she will work for EB, but she has a big thank you to relay to the BBC, and other smearmongers, for her `victory`.

    btw, what`s her position on double/triple jobbing? MP, Assembly member, councillor, her husband also a councillor (?), Haven`t we seen this somewhere before?

  • A win is a win, and Naomi did well. Great shot!

  • snowstorm

    Pathetic effort Pinni – this was a brilliant result from Naomi / Alliance. Why do youput parenthesis around ‘victory’ – are you saying it is something other than a victory??

  • Bulmer

    My aunt has waited nearly 40 years for this moment!

    i love all the democrats from the unionist party with that name. oh yes the people of eb cant decide for themselves what they think of robinson. its the bbc smears that lost him the seat. one question pinnini can smears vote? can the bbc en bloc vote against robinson? at least the good people of clontibret can rest now no more incursions into their wee town!!

  • dundonald voter

    i know the dup are very happy with the rsults last night apart from the punt. but one wee thing sinn fein have been the largest party for the last two elections. is this a trend that will make marty 1st minister? paisley junior and dodds, campbell, simpson the extra vision kid have all been returned with less majorities. dodds by 2000 votes mccrea by 1000. it wont take much to overturn these. by the way junior good victory but 7500 votes down.

  • dundonald voter

    it wont take long before the maverick junior will make a total hash of north antrim. thats the next target for the alliance!! and if you think im crazy just watch the way his behaviour when he won. did amyone ever see such a ridiculous attempt at singing a hymm? i thought he was blocked. great start junior!!

    I think regardless of anyones political views you have to acknowledge the work she put into this and the remarkable achievement it is. Her grace towards Peter R and his towards her was remarkable. I hope PR can recover, he looks so unwell
