Sit down, stand upstandard
It's been a great night for the SNP who have swept all before them in Scotland - it's even led reporter Rick Faragher to declare he's afraid to stand up in case they take his seat too.

50,276 votes cast in Newry-Armagh: 64.76% turnout.
This is a large constituency south of Belfast on the border with the Republic of Ireland. It is dominated by the two cities that give it its name. Armagh is home to the heads of the Catholic Church and Anglican Church of Ireland. Newry attained city status in 2002 as part of the Golden Jubilee.
The estimated population of the constituency in 2013 was 115,000. The last census showed 66% were Catholic. Newry and Armagh has younger population than Northern Ireland as a whole.
Politically, a split nationalist vote enabled Ulster Unionist Jim Nicholson to hold the constituency in the 1980s. But after resigning his seat in protest at the Anglo Irish Agreement in 1985 he failed to hold it in the subsequent by-election, losing out to Seamus Mallon, SDLP. He held the seat until his retirement in 2005. At the 2005 general election Sinn Féin's Conor Murphy took the seat.
