. @ClaireHanna has resigned as @SDLPlive Brexit spokesperson & from the party's Assembly Group. A firm critic of the party's new partnership with @fiannafailparty , she says she will continue to be an SDLP member

As with all political parties, the SDLP regularly emails press releases to political journalists, newsdesks, etc. Remarkably, more than 24 hours after one of the biggest decisions in the SDLP's history, it hasn't sent out a press release to explain its FF alliance. Not a word.

I thought the SDLP WAS Claire Hanna. Nobody else in the party has a comparable media profile. It is hard to imagine how Miceal Martin will be a greater asset.

.@ClaireHanna is one of ablest & most principled politicians out there - regardless of SDLP/FF moves N Ireland can Ill afford to lose her from Politics. @markdevenport @BBCNewsNI BBC News - Claire Hanna quits SDLP assembly group

Looking to happier times, I just wanted to comment how my 7 years in the SDLP has shaped me as a person. It really hurts to see some members quick to disregard my commitment to the party. I’m proud of the things I helped to achieve, and nothing can change that. Matthew | Maitiú Ó Corra's photo on SDLP

A difficult decision no doubt for Claire as she is SDLP through & through. But its SDLP/FF's loss as Claire is their main & best media performer.

They say animals can sense impending disaster so the mass outbreaks at Belfast zoo and the FF/SDLP merger should come as no surprise

"Saturday saw (northern) Social Democratic and Labour Party (SDLP) vote overwhelmingly in favour of a strategic partnership with (southern) opposition Fianna Fáil – opening prospect of full merger. Meanwhile, a new all-Ireland party Aontú (“unity”)set up branches north& south"

"for half a century, Labour has supported an SDLP that wants (eventually) to quit the UK while damning the SNP for wanting the same" - @GeorgeKerevan

Far and away the best front-line member of the SDLP. Hoping the FF 'partnership' is worth it to those who back the idea.

A massive loss for the SDLP Assembly Group and a very difficult decision for Claire, I'm sure.

@ClaireHanna A merger that isn't a merger has prompted a resignation that's not quite a full resignation. SDLP to the core, I'll give you that.

To me, Claire Hanna is the SDLP. There are few other MLAs as principled or levelled headed. A real assets to politics here.

Claire, for me, has always epitomised what the SDLP stands for. One of the most inspiring & exceptional people I’ve had the pleasure to know. I’m forever grateful for the support she has given me over the years.

The SDLP can’t even resign from the party properly.

Some may think I'm revelling in the decline of the SDLP. Far from it. A lot of talented, hardworking activists & reps are having to choose between their ideology or their careers because of Colum's leadership. He has chosen nosedive over resurgence. Utter incompetence.

Happier times! A few years ago the SDLP had two Assembly seats in South Belfast & the Westminster seat. Tonight it has no representatives in south Belfast above council level. Darran Marshall's photo on SDLP

The echo chamber at @SluggerOToole is an eye opener for anyone wanting to understand the bizarre obsession with @sinnfeinireland there. Have a read at the comments section on a piece about the SDLP/FF merger. 90% are about SF. Two "mods" even question the writer's politics

SDLP’s @columeastwood says the door is open for @ClaireHanna to return to the party fold. He says decision on Fianna Fâil partnership will bear fruit in the long term. Darran Marshall's photo on SDLP

Claire was the only MLA that featured for SDLP.. A big loss. More incompetency from @SDLPlive.

I have never seen as much praise from all different parties for a politican as to what Claire has received today. I joined the SDLP due to the vision she shared in South Belfast and I still believe in that vision. Tonight I have nothing but respect for Claire.
11 Feb, 05:22 PM UTC
Martin McAuley
SDLP will absolutely miss Claire’s incisive skill in the Brexit space. Remain of the view that both sides must come together, sooner rather than later, to alleviate concerns, challenge each other, and ensure that what comes next lives up to shared values.

Youth, women and LGBT? Sure what political party would be pitching at those demographics 🙄This is an incredibly naive decision by the SDLP #CaveatEmptor

The same goes for the former Chairpersons of SDLP Youth, LGBT and Women.

@LaceyDermot @morningireland Your post was a statement, Dermot. The lack of your own use of a question mark was the giveaway. I think you're losin it. Like you lost the sdlp.
11 Feb, 05:23 PM UTC
There’s not a SDLP figure outside Mallon and Eastwood that has a media profile quite like Claire Hanna. A major loss for the Assembly group

“Claire was a top class Brexit spokesperson...,” @columeastwood tells @BBCevex he’s disappointed Claire Hanna has resigned from her position after the SDLP voted to link up with Fianna Fáil at the weekend. He says they’ve yet to have a full conversation about her decision

@DebShoes72 Well whatever it is, both TUV in Fermanagh & SDLP in Mid Ulster must be reading from the same book 🤣

Stíofán Ó Muirgheasáin
@MartinMcAuley Martin, this is a fundamental change in the SDLP, not a disagreement over a contentious policy. If you join a party for Labour politics, and it enters into a policy partnership with conservatives, there is no “coming together.” It’s fundamentally opposing ideologies.

Claire is one of the brightest & most articulate politicians in Ireland & is SDLP through and through I totally respect anyone who sticks to their principles as Claire has done here & I've no doubt Claire will continue to be an excellent MLA

@ClaireHanna Claire, I’ve been saddened to see everything happening in the SDLP over the past while. Have to thank you for standing up for your principles and for your ongoing commitment to real social democracy. You have my solidarity and full support.

@ClaireHanna Sorry to hear this, Claire. We need you in politics. SDLP treated membership terribly, especially those like yourself who have given years of service to SDLP.

I'm not sure about the SDLP/FF pact. It's a bit like Steps joining Eternal to form a Candy Pop Supergroup.

@William_McQuade @ClaireHanna If you had a political brain you would look into the ramifications of a complete resignation. Her husband is running in local elections and she needs the SDLP bounce, something she has no dou t a calculated date for.
