Spare me the nonsense plz. We'll be re-grouping mid-March to facilitate more charades from the same faces. SF are every bit as bad as the DUP as well.

If 2016 taught us anything it's that not voting has a major impact on outcomes, fingers crossed -  I'm going for that bizzaro world outcome.

Exactly. Use your vote as a protest vote. It's not exactly like voting takes up the whole day.

New parties and new faces required to make a difference to move away from tribalism and the totally stupid preoccupation with the obsolete philosophies of Unionism and Nationalism.

Sorry that nobody uses your posts as a barometer of public opinion Fearon. Are you still banging on that the SDLP and SF are out of touch with the nationalist electorate because of their support for gay marriage and that the marriage referendum in the south shows that southerners are so different to northerners that a UI is impossible? Because if you go through the polling posted in either this thread or the RHI one, you'll find that well over 90% of Catholics support gay marriage. Most of them were also pretty supportive of a UI.


EDIT: Here it is, from the RHI thread.

Check out this recent polling and the changes after RHI comes to the fore:

https://lucidtalk.co.uk/images/News/LTDec16TrackerPollResults-GeneralRpt.pdf

92% of Catholic's support gay marriage. Only 4.3% see the UK staying in the EU and the north staying in the UK as the ideal constitutional settlement.

Go out and spoil your vote. If say 30% of the votes were spoiled, it'd at least make a statement and maybe precipitate a change

Someone pointed this out on Slugger

I'm sure Milltown Row will welcome having to pay for his doctor like much of the rest of the Irish nation.

More seriously, the Tories will be pushing cutbacks of all sorts and the local lot will face this and a lot of pressure from agriculture and so on for money post EU. Perhaps those MLAs that are not running again are the wise ones.
if at first you don't succeed, then goto Plan B

For the first time in maybe close on  20 years I'm not going to vote, they can all f**k off.

Not voting doesn't mean 'f**k off'. Not voting means that you're sending out a message that says 'keep doing what you're doing and I'll certainly not prevent you ripping me off any more'.

Spot on
