    Default East Belfast Constituency

    Turnout: 29,873
    Total Valid Poll: 29,629
    Quota: 4,233


    Peter Robinson MP (DUP) 5635 Votes (19.0%)
    Naomi Long (Alliance) 5583 Votes (18.8%)

    This constituency was the surprise result in the Westminster Election 2010, with Naomi Long of the Alliance Party, taking the seat from cuckold incumbent Husband of Iris Robinson
    Peter Robinson had gained much sympathy from the public after the revelations about his wife, until the BBC revealed that he had purchased a piece of land from a property developer for £5 and sold it again for £460,000.
    The hard core Unionist vote swung surprisingly in favour of the Alliance Party, (That's Unionist with a small 'u' to you and me) who will hope to gain on this and achieve two seat here

    Dawn Purvis has resigned from the PUP and will run as an independant, it will be interesting to be see if her codemnation of the murder of Bobby Moffet by Loyalist Paramilitaries last year will effect her popularity

    Naomi Long won this seat for Alliance last time in an unrivalled shock result which dumped DUP leader Peter Robinson out of Westminster. Many feel the entire 'Fleg' emergency was driven by the DUP trying to oust her by blaming Alliance for the flag being removed from City Hall 24/7/365.

    The DUP have gone for Gavin Robinson (No relation) who was a well respected Lord Mayor but who hasn't covered himself in the same glory during this campaign. Shamefully, the UUP have stood aside to give him a free run but despite predictions to the contrary, Naomi should still be well in the hunt.
