Quote from: Milltown Row2 on June 07, 2024, 11:05:06 AMHe'd be surely more popular than that weasel?

Do the polls have it close?

Very tight.
Quite a few seats this time will be close.


SF won't be a million miles away either in SA which may stop nationalists from tactically voting for swann otherwise he would be clear favourite

Not sure about that. I think it's about Swann and the DUP.

Issue is that you can't really judge a party's vote in these type of elections as some parties aren't standing in certain areas and others are voting tactically etc.

Will that not always be the case though?

Rishi has touched a nerve heading home early from the D-Day commemoration.

It looks like he has completely ruined himself. The daily mail etc have even turned against him. Huge political own goal. The guy is an imbecile.

Got to be moreseo in a ftp election though surely? Like a sensible person who might vote sdlp/sf usually in east belfast for talk sake might vote alliance as they have a realistic chance of being elected. If there were multiple candidates being elected they'd give a shinner first preference and maybe alliance second.

South Antrim is a dark horse constituency for SF. They made huge strides in this area in last years historic council elections.  If the DUP and UUP are neck and neck and the TUV get a few votes then SF could be very close indeed.

I think the reason the UUP will be in the running will be because of tactical voting by Alliance, SF and the SDLP.

Stormont elections are different.

Probably not much more than a handful.

There was a referendum on the issue in the UK in 2011, one of the reasons there was a the Liberal/Tory coalition government. Tories opposed it.

Quote from: imtommygunn on June 03, 2024, 09:19:33 PMBall bag is too kind. A c**t at best. Doubt he even believes anything he even says. Making loads of money peddling his hate.

Oh, he believes it, all right. Sure, only a fool wouldn't.

Farage is a fascinating character. When I watch him in debates he just seems to abuse the questioner or the opponent. I cannot get a bead on his policy, line of thought of factual underpinning.

Would Burdizzo or any other poster be able to point to somewhere where Farage has set this out? Did he have a manifesto for the last election?

I would be worried that it's all fluff and he is just making money out of vulnerable supporters by abusing other vulnerable people.

Happy to be put right by quality evidence.
