I mentioned in the last entry that all the Euro-results were now in --- not quite correct :-(
... I'd forgotten that Northern Ireland was still to declare. They, rather sensibly, use STV-PR and not the 'closed-list' system that the rest of the UK operates for the European Elections. And, believe it or not, the whole country-wide vote is counted by hand, thus the results are just coming out now.
Anyhow, amongst the many other 'firsts' from last night - there is now the 'first' of Sinn Fein topping the poll in Northern Ireland.
What a set of elections!
