    Why does it take a whole business day to count fewer than 400 votes?

  • SDLP supporter

    It doesn’t. Voting started at around 4.30 pm on Friday and closes at 4.00pm Saturday. After the poll closes verification and counting takes about 15 minutes.

    Really, it just seems like the Belfast and non-Belfast/North-West SDLP divisions that always seem to have been there.

    Thats not really fair.

    You forgot the Newry / Belfast divisions, the Newry / Derry Divisions , the Old / Young DIvisions, the Oppressed Farmers Against the Rest Divisions and then there are also the interpersonal divisions

    Also bear in mind that some Divisions overlap. If you ever did Maths at school think of all those lessons on set theory with overlapping circles – lots of them!!!

    Shiner bots out in force this evening working overtime. Aided and abetted from the other extreme by ChrisJones2.

    Sorry i am not programmed to understand your comment, please repeat using simple language.

  • SDLP supporter

    To be fair to you, Robin Keogh, it wasn’t you to whom I was referring. You’re not a sneerer or a cynic or a cheap shot merchant and you are knowledgeable. I disagree with your political commitment, but you are a formidable debater.

  • Robin Keogh

    Thank you for that and i understand what u mean
