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!
