I think voters can now petition for a by-election, which would be a waste of time, I spose.

Not been a good few weeks for the Jnr.

Means the government are down a vote for the next month though which is a plus!!

On the abstention thing well Sinn Fein have made that many concessions in the last 20 years surely this should be the next. With the current Government and Brexit they have a chance to make a real difference for North and South with regard to Brexit and they're not.

Blah blah they were voted in on abstention but that doesn't really cut the mustard anymore. Things are getting heated and they need to be seen to be doing something. I actually think it would win them more votes to say right we're going into Westminster to make a difference rather than the shite going on with the assembly.

I know one thing I'll not be voting for them in a GE again!

Problem being I guess in the short term they might have an impact and a say, on a very important issue for this part of the world. But what would rule out a GE being called soon after they went in and it wiped out any influence that they would have hoped to have. Then they are still on the outside of the decision making process that they would have sold their souls to be involved in.

"Sold their souls" is a bit dramatic!!

As I've said they've made a number of concessions over the years and this is another . . .

Who would have believed McGuinness shaking the Queen's hand or supporting the PSNI, sharing power with the DUP.

At every turn these things were seen as selling their souls but they haven't dropped support. Taking their seat at Westminster to try and preserve jobs for the North and trade for the Southcan easily be spun and should be!!
But it's not a concession to start taking their seats!

If it was a concession it would have been part of the GFA, when the abstention should have ended. SF should ended it then. But no other politician in north, south or in Britain wants them to go, so not a hope in hell they'd ask for that "concession" by SF!

They only people losing out by them not taking their seats are the people they are supposed to represent.

The people they represent knew what they were voting for, abstentionism. Anybody who believes 7 SF votes would change things at Westminster is deluded. How many Tory pro-Remain rebels would want to be seen voting with the Shinners? Imagine the headlines in the Mail and Express. What difference did Durkan, Ritchie and McDonnell ever make? What benefits did they ever bring nationalists in the north?

DUP seeing their wee power strip disappearing into the ether ... slap it up the b**tards (like Jnr slaps it up ELP)

I'm pretty sure this is libellous.  :-X

I believe young Jnr has some serious shit coming down the line from the mother of all parliaments. 10 day suspension looming, apparently. Surely his position is untenable if true. The DUP really are a corrupt shower of f**kers, but as long as they play the sectarian card, their sc**bag supporters continue to vote for this parcel of utter w**kers

Lord Laird, prominent Ulster Scots campaigner.

Mey 'e reist a pace.

Yeh...all the tributes glossed over his earlier career in Vanguard...a completely bitter ould ballix & that side of him is being airbrushed.

Tell me. When McGuinness passed away, would you have hoped that those of a unionist persuasion concentrated their memories on his final 20 years, or the 20 previous?

To be fair, in his last 20 years he ripped off the taxpayer atrociously, and remember, this was a very rich man to start with. He was also barred from the house of lords for 5 days for disgraceful ripping off of expenses, which even saw the UUP dumping him out of shame. I have utmost sympathy for his family mourning a loved one. But, let's be realistic here, the guy was an utter unionist bigoted ****. Like The Stranglers song says, Everyone Loves You When You're Dead. Let's not be hypocrites here.

Where's Sourpuss?

Where's Sourpuss?

That'll do Richie Donnelly's confidence the world of good. Did M Donnelly or Harte score from play?
Think Matty got a point, but don't quote me. Huge score, but huge score conceded. Both Roscommon goals were sloppy

Where's Sourpuss?

Yis aren't playing Armagh today

Absolute moonbeams. They can't afford an Irish Language Act but they can stump up 20bn for a bridge to Scotland? West of the Bann a desert for decent roads or rail links and she's peddling this shite. They really are panicking over the demographics and will suggest anything to maintain their connection to the 'mainland', no matter how desperate, cos they know what's coming down the road, especially when Brexit goes seriously tits up... what a balloon she really is  ::)

She's read the runes and realises that the demographics are against unionists, particularly in light of Brexit and her 'crocodiles' approach to her neighbours, which is persuading a lot of soft nationalists not to prop up the failed, putrid statelet anymore. I suspect she also knows that she's going to come out of RHI looking extremely incompetent/culpable, thus the current charm offensive to burnish her tawdry image. It's probably all too little, too late for her IMO. She's seriously damaged goods, no matter what spin her cheerleaders on the Belfast Telegraph put on it

Even after they were done for murder, Ian Thain and Lee Clegg were admitted back into the British Army after serving what must have been the shortest sentences in history for the crime. Irish victims of these scum have always been treated with contempt. Unfortunately, the McAnespie family will never get the justice they deserve, like the countless other victims of state murderers

The fact the Shinners were able to bring the whole thing down and keep it down shows that FM post is not as important as DUP would like to think. Besides, the way the demographics are going, if Stormont is still not operating by, say, 2020-21 (and I personally hope it's gone for ever), then we've witnessed our last unionist FM. How are they gonna spin that during their 'celebrations' of the centenary of the founding of the failed, putrid statelet?

Makes his hissy fit the other month even more ridiculous.

Give the Uncle Tom a little leeway, I always talk shite when I'm on the Jameson too... but I'm not on it 24/7
