  1. Comment on Sinn Fein rise 5% in Red C sets them up for a surge in southern Local Elections…

    Lol Charles – what planet are you on ???

    If / When Sinn Fein enter government in the South, you can guarantee that they will immediately commission a white paper on the detail of what a united Ireland would potentially loook like and what the financial implications will be. In my view this will be the single biggest step forward towards unification of the country since the GFA. Will be a major game-changer – Then the discussion can begin in earnest !

    exactly why I said anything above 15-16% in the locals would be an excellent performance.

    Encouraging sign for Sinn Fein no doubt – I would say that anything above 15-16% in the locals should be considered an excellent performance. Is this possibly a reaction to MLM’s very strong recent performance, including a very confident and popular showing on the Late late ?

    If Sinn Fein were actually to hit 20% plus in the locals, then I believe this would indeed be a game-changer – potentially exciting times ahead.

    Surprises me – Strabane never been the most tolerant of places. In fact, the only thing that would be worse than being gay and livin in Strabane, would be being a Derryman living in Strabane :-) Now if ye were a gay Derryman then ye’d really be in trouble !!

  6. Comment on McGuinness’s Al Jazeera interview: Terrorism, conflict and a popular peace
    on 19 March 2014 at 11:28 am

    Really enjoyed that – thanks for posting Mick. Will definitely be googling similar debates. Surprised me that Martin didn’t correct the interviewer more on the targeting of innocents – it’s obvious to anyone with even a passing knowledge of the IRA that this was not their purpose or approach. If they intended targeting innocent civilians then why on earth would the concept of a telephoned warning even exist – utterly ridiculous, and am surprised that martin wasn’t stronger in addressing. Very interesting debate however.

    They may be middle-class unionists, but they’re middle-class REPUBLICAN IRA-LOVING unionists, isn’t that right AyeyerMa :-)
    Do you not understand that it’s idiots like you which fuel the LAD machine – and long may it continue :-)

  9. Comment on Sinn Fein and the south-where do they go from here? #SFAF
    on 14 February 2014 at 12:38 pm

    Reader,
    ‘And yet SF and its supporters seem quite keen to point out the number of female representatives within the party. Is that also an idiotic way to judge a political party?’

    Yes, in my opinion, it is also an idiotic way to judge a political party. Policy, Policy, Policy – that’s what politics should be all about !
