O’Dowd’s Elliott rebuke contender for quote of the campaign

 Put down of the election belongs to Sinn Fein’s John O’Dowd. Following on from the UUP Leader’s ill-tempered remarks during his acceptance speech, when he made reference to the people waving “foreign flags” before labelling them as “scum” when they responded to his jibe, O’Dowd commented on the BBC: 

“I share the views of many in the Ulster Unionist Party [that] Tom Elliott will never make a political leader.”
