The fruits of the Fianna Fail SDLP partnership are already clear to see. Claire Hanna simply won't have any truck with Tricky Micky Martin, Councillors on the brink, Party members walking out. Niall Kelly gone.
Add that to the loss of Josephine Deelehan, Patsy Kelly, Joanne Donnolly, Tony Quinn, Rosemarie Shields,
Colum Eastwood is the Simon Haris of northern politics.
Handing what is left of the SDLP to become a plaything for Eamon Ó Cuiv, Willie O'Dea and Cowen!
Fitt, Hume, Mallon, all by revisionism will from now on be just another chapter in the history of the party that gave us Bertie, Haughey, Ray Burke and Liam Lawlor!
Thank you very much Mr Eastwood.
