Surely itís the end for NI21

(Suzanne Breen, Sunday Life)

Watching the car crash that is NI21 is painful. Nobody in their ranks should spout any more rubbish about rebuilding for the future. They party should just be wound up.

There will be no coming back from the fatal wounds their leaders have inflicted upon themselves in recent days. NI21 has lost all credibility with the public.

The people who have been robbed are those who voted for the party and, most of all, the council candidates themselves.

These mainly young men and women put their heads above the parapet to take a stand for what they thought was a bright new political movement.

They have been made to look fools by older, more experienced heads who treated them with contempt.

NI21's party political broadcast and its election literature was first-class. It's a shame that those with such imagination and innovation had so little common sense.

No party built on solid foundations would implode so quickly. And rather than a serious political challenge to sectarianism, NI21 unfortunately now just looks like an ego trip gone wrong.
