I'd love to shove that trumpet up the arse of the 2 tune Cnut that's playing it

That has to be the most uninformed message ever posted on this board

Andersen is obviously an MEP to keep her out of sight locally as she is useless. Unfortunately for SF too many of their politicians (like all parties here) are of poor quality. Some of the 'new' talent that got elected last month with huge votes are shockingly bad!
This is another example of a 'sound bite' post. Can you please provide evidence to support this statement .

For starters most of them struggle to put a sentence together but that is par for the course these days. The new crew should be a step away from the baggage of the troubles to help SF grow but many are quite happy to confirm their family links. I personally would like my public representatives to be respectable and professional and not liking daft comments about the FM on facebook like a ten year old or having their partners assault people on the street . As podge stated many of the supposed old guard aren't much better but i wouldn't be too harsh on Adams and Kelly at least they have a bit of charisma. If you want evidence regarding Andersen then re-watch pretty much any interview she has ever given
A nonsensical rant. Produce the evidence to support your claims. So far you've allude to a young western MLA who stupidly liked a comment about the FM and was publicly rebuked for it it. What else do you have to back up what you say

It's clear that Martin McGuinness was the man keeping it all together

SF seem to be losing the run of themselves and by rubbing unionist noses in it and calling for a border poll etc they are playing right into DUP hands. Expect an election in weeks, big unionist turnout coupled with lower nationalist turnout and Arlene will be back stronger than ever having 'put manners on SF'

Can you give a few examples of promises made in manifestos that were subsequently not followed through.

How are you still posting here?

I couldnt sleep the other night so got up and did some channel surfing, before landing on horse racing in Australia. I don't bet or follow horse racing, but the place looked warm and nice.

Anyway, you know when they lead the horses around in a circle before the jockeys mount up, do the horses ever stand on people's toes?
Did Olly frape you there Orior?

Sorry, I don't know what point you're making other than proving my point that the Political parties have policies on the bread and butter issues and are delivering

So people complain that the media keep referring to NI politics and Green and Orange... the vast majority of this thread has been the same thing.

The odd post relates to education/jobs/welfare/hospital waiting lists/welbeing/infrastructure/wages/less tax on the poor more tax on the rich....

Dire stuff indeed.. get out and vote so that we can keep themus out!! Anyone who votes based on that is a clampit (IMHO)  ;)

You are basically saying that the DUP & Sf are exactly the same ... Yet again that is simply not true ... SF weren't involved in "any" of the scandals (dont need to list them again) and even bent over backwards to keep big arnie in position .. but her intransigence, arrogance and just basic bitterness wouldnt allow her (them) to admit to it and take the necessary steps that would have to be taken in any other modern society..

And if the DUP, UUP & TUV etc.. want to dredge up the past and hold their noses etc.. why dont they do the same with all the loyalists they constantly have no issues associating with .. why dont the Orange Order have any issues with them either .. It also shouldnt need pointing out to them that Sf have moved a long long way and they ALL knew the legacy issues when they signed up to this but they just keep bringing us back .. Mind you, considering they seem to deny agreements that were made or renege on them at will seems to be par for the course for them..

EDIT - The DUP & Tory's didnt like the result so may well force another election .. Babies spitting the dummy out comes to mind ..
FFS the lovely uber DUP man Jim Allister basically said on radio yesterday that Stormont should be shut down for ever now as themuns are getting too close to a majority .. its like one football team beating another team for 100 years straight, getting all the prizes etc.. and then when the other team has the downright audacity of getting a draw (a bloody draw for christs sake  ::) ) the first team huffs and says we're not playing you anymore, (cause ye might bate us  >:( ) ... its feckin rediculous .. how do you do proper politics with a shower like that ?


Both sides are NOT the same and I have no problem voting for SF as long as they dont start behaving like the DUP .. then I would change immediately ..

The DUP & BrokenPromises have cobbled together what they think is a solution to their problems .. we end up getting trod upon yet again..
I sincerely hope it doesnt work out for them and if Im a clampit for getting p1ssed off the DUP then I hope to God Im not alone

(I do wish Adams would stay the feck off the TV though)

I said nothing of the sort! I'm basically saying that I've not heard one proper policy from either crowd on the things I've mentioned... now in your twisted logic if that makes them the same then grand..

Give me a party that will tackle the main issues as that's what really matters

Well its certainly what you are implying ... and I quote "Dire stuff indeed.. get out and vote so that we can keep themus out!! Anyone who votes based on that is a clampit"

what would you call that ? ... I doubt its "Twisted Logic" as you say..

You cant do normal politics with this crowd... I would have thought that was pretty obvious..

It depends on what you mean scandals with SF... again ive yet to see read or hear of normal politics from either crowd...

so you cant do normal politics with this crowd so do what then? if ya cant beat them join them??

It is dire stuff, and even more so if the public waste more money on voting again, while not laying blame on SF for that fiasco its still more tax payers money being wasted
Have you read any of the Party manifestos?  All the bread and butter issues are covered there.

The aim of any pilot is to try something innovative and if it works then mainstream it. It would seem, however, that this pilot is now ending and they are now going to look to see how they can apply what has been learned from it into current provision. That will take time and an interim extension of 12 months for the pilot to allow for the new arrangements to be implemented would have seemed to have been a sensible approach. Problem is that the Civil Service is run by accountants and people who operate in silos therefore because the savings are possibly being made in other Departments counts for nothing if the funding department is not getting a return

A description for some area of Longford in the Chronicles of St. Alun from the 7th Century - rough translation from Latin:

"And we set forth from the seat of Mel of Ardagh, to the Shamrock Shore of the great river, all in the glory of God"
You live and learn. I just thought you picked the name because you're a Horslips fan. I wasn't aware of the deeper meaning.
