Especially in the dole office, degrading the Irish people with handouts from the King.

Is the oath the main reason why the Shinners will not take their seats in Westminster?

The Govt is powerless to do anything about the NHS now. It's largely a sick care money racket. Junior docs when they realise where they have landed themselves are dropping out or emigrating in significant numbers. Where's the satisfaction in medicating people to an acceptable level of sickness rather than fixing their ailments in the longer term. Throwing money at it just feeds the beast. We need Docs who can think for themselves not just administer pre determined protocols. How the medics have let it come to this??

No. They've been fairly consistent in saying that they can't be opposed to British politicians having a say in Irish affairs while simultaneously, as Irish politicians, going over to sit in Westminster and involving themselves in the political affairs of people in Britain.

Would the resources and money then used to fight the seats for Westminster not be best used elsewhere?

Just watched view from stormont from the other night on itvx. Shirlow is some guy for trolling. He keeps repeating this gibberish that come border poll Alliance don't count so using his one eyed calculations nationalists need 51 out of every 85 votes in a referendum. That's 60% so not 50%+1. It's comical if it wasn't actually coming from an academic who produces polls that will be used to influence a SoS whether a border poll is needed or not. I don't understand why the likes of David McCann and Suzanne Breen co commentators on the panel just sit back and not challenge this garbage.

So a political party ought not be spending its money on getting people elected? There's a new angle to the abstentionism debate, just when I'd thought it was the most repetitive debate on earth.

They still operate a full constituency service. They only thing they don't do is attend the chamber.

I can't be the only one who's bored of this abstentionistm "debate" every five years? Surely even SFs most ardent critics are tired of it at this stage and can see that they're getting absolutley nowhere with it?

I'm not saying they are wrong btw, Westminster has been a pointless entity for here since the State began, and continues to pay lip service to most if not all things.

What would the duties be in a fully operational constituency office?

Fixing potholes and getting swastika's painted over depending on your constituency.

If this is what MPs focus their energies on what do the MLAs and councillors, surely they all can not take credit for fixing potholes or getting roads surfaced.    Regardless if anything is actually done we are not short in terms of a governance structures in this country.
