BBC & UTV & most reporters seem to be aimlessly going along with the ridiculous statements from the DUP & UUP that they are NOT indulging in a pact ... WTF  ::)

Fermanagh/South Tyrone & North Belfast mustn't count then for some bizarre reason  ???

And the TV/radio/press zoombies are 99% just going along with it ... FFS  :-X

it seems to me that Fister is trying (and getting away with) to dupe the silly aul taigs into thinking she's all sweetness & light these days .. This blatant lie along with things like her visiting an Oirsh school (poor pet) and basically having her gub zipped up is all some dastardly plan to fool the crocodiles into staying in deep waters and forgetting to come out and vote ....

Dont let it work folks dont let it work  ;)

My feeling is "no" in north Belfast, the question is whether SF will get them or not.

John Finucane turning out for his first ever park run yesterday morn suggests he is out to get them anyway - good hunting ground.

Arlene serves up another 'crocodile' for SF, does she have no advisers or is she too arrogant to listen?

I suppose then one could fairly describe Arlene as very 'black'.
if at first you don't succeed, then goto Plan B

Newsletter is reporting that SF is distributing leaflets with fake news or false claims or, as we used to say, lies and propaganda:

Between the 2005 general election and the last general election Sinn Fein’s vote has gone from 2,882 to 5,402 (almost doubled). However, the SDLP vote has not halved, the 10,339 votes for McDonnell in 2005 had fallen by just 7% to 9,560 votes in 2015. March’s Assembly result – despite the fact that that election was a multi-seat PR contest – shows that the SDLP vote has not halved, falling by 19% to 8,353.

I hope O'Muilleor's maths is better when it comes to being in charge of Assembly finances.

Any word on when the Stormont election's going to be called?  Any word on how the anti-brexit alliance is panning out? Any logic in Labour accepting a limit on the freedom of movement of labour?  Any word on what special status us Northern Irelanders are going to be lumbered with?  And, most importantly, what will be the religious makeup of the MPs we return?

Taken from a contribution to Slugger O'Toole's discussion on this issue:

https://sluggerotoole.com/2017/05/22/mairtin-caught-telling-porky-pies-in-his-south-belfast-ae2017-campaign-leaflet/

"SF share of vote (or "vote" as the leaflet says) in 2005 was 9.0%;in March 2017, it was 17.7%, a 97% increase.

SDLP vote in 2005 was 32.3%, in March 2017 it was 19.4% (that's the combination of the two SDLP candidates, the 15.5% that you refer to is for just one SDLP candidate), a decline of 40.0%.

Did the SF vote double? It increased by 97%.
Did the SDLP vote halve? It decreased by 40.0%

The leaflet is basically accurate."


Basically accurate - that's what you want from someone in charge of the public purse - budget is basically right  ::)
