Excellent programme following Darcas Howe in a quest for an argument (sound file) that would make him abandon his lifelong abstentionism from the voting process. In the end he comes to Northern Ireland, believing it to be one of the few places where he might be pursuaded to vote. Local novelist gives it his best shot, but Howe is not obviously converted. So why should he change his mind? Tell us why, if we get a decent response, we’ll forward it to the programme makers and hopefully on to Howe in time for voting on May 5th!
A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
