Trimble is beaten in Upper Bann

BBC News:

The Ulster Unionist leader, David Trimble, has lost his seat in Upper Bann.

In a sensational victory DUP rival David Simpson topped the poll with 16,679 votes to Mr Trimble's 11,281.

With its leader unseated as an MP and four UUP seats now gone, the result has thrown the future of the party and Mr Trimble into disarray.

Earlier a close Trimble supporter, David McNarry, said his party had to prepare for its leader's resignation.

Let's hope that the SDLP will now follow Trimble into political oblivion.
