The simple truth is the protestant state for a  Protestant people is no more. Thank God.
The DUPes were making a brave bid to re establish it over the last 6 months or so.

He certainly lived through interesting times.
Best wishes and hope he gets better health wise.

Even if 70% spoiled their vote 90 MLAs will still be elected.
And they will get paid and their hangers on will get paid.
That would outweigh any other message ;)

Working out a percentage only happens if someone exceeds quota on first count.
I believe it's done in all cases in the North.
Here if you exceed the quota on say 3rd count they simply take the surplus straight from the top of your pile of votes , in other words from the transfers you got from others.
That's why people look for recounts where there's a close call in the hope a different set of papers will change things.

You are not maximising your PR if you don't give preferences to the least objectionable others.
If for example all  the Nationalist candidates are elected or eliminated then your vote is dead if you haven't continued to eg  Greens, Alliance and then to the Unionists you prefer.
It's all about PREFERENCES.

I spoiled my vote at the last elections but wont be doing it this time.  I can't bear to watch the arrogance of the DUP any longer.  There'll be a number in every box bar the DUP's this time.

That's the way to use PR.
Spoiled votes don't get counted and nobody gives 2 Fs about them.
As for not voting. ....if only 20% vote it's still a valid election and those 20% make the decision for everyone.

Whatever about Junior I'd be thinking any lad who hadn't made  Co Senior by 25 would be as well left alone.
I think Counties are allowed field u23 teams in the JFCs this year.

So you're going to vote for Nationalists and Unionists despite all your "Northern (sic) Irishness"  ::)

I think it's something in the water round Shliigo Zulu. ::)
Or else all that heading the ball.
The paranoia is most amusing.

As I said before I'm not a member or supporter of them and I'm certainly not apologising for them.
Why would they need an "Apologist"anyway?
