Online Poll: Should Tom Elliott resign?

Speaking at the end of the count for the Fermanagh-South Tyrone constituency UUP leader Tom Elliott referred to the Irish tricolour as "the flag of a foreign nations" and described Sinn Fein as 'scum'.

He rounded on republicans who were celebrating a major gain in the Fermanagh/South Tyrone constituency.

Sinn Fein later attacked his remarks as being out of step with the co-operation between republicans and unionists at Stormont.
