Will the catholic population be up, down, left or right? Will a border poll be demanded on the back of it all? Or will the real story be the growth of the ‘no religion, above us only sky? Imagine all the people, livin’ life in peace, oooohhhhh.’
Sorry got distracted there. Anyway, to cheapen the occasion as only we know how, we want your guesses for The Slugger Big Sectarian Headcount Competition!
Vote early, vote often. The winner will get two tickets for our next live event. Depending on your politics, the loser will get a 32-country socialist republic or an eternal UK.
Here are the results from the last census to give you an idea.
I help to manage Slugger by taking care of the site as well as running our live events. My background is in business, marketing and IT. My politics tend towards middle-of-the-road pragmatism, I am not a member of any political party. Oddly for a member of the Slugger team, I am not that interested in daily politics, preferring to write about big ideas in society. When not stuck in front of a screen, I am a parkrun Run Director.
