Anne Craine gracious in her defeat

Fri, 30 Sep 2011

One of the government ministers dumped by voters in last night's election seems to be taking her defeat graciously.

In one of the biggest shocks of the night, Anne Craine lost her seat in Ramsey to former MHK and MLC Leonard Singer.

The former Treasury Minister told Energy FM's Chris Boyd that she knew it would be a tough contest, but she didn't seem bitter about the outcome.[Play media file below]

Leonard Singer says, for him, the hard work starts now.[Play media file below]

Martyn Quayle, Adrian Earnshaw, Bill Malarkey and Quintin Gill also failed to get re-elected.

The seven new members will be sworn in to the House of Keys next Tuesday.
