Jesus Nally, I know lots of solicitors and doctors who vote Sinn Fein, I doubt they'd be very happy with you.

Walk into a Queen's medicine lecture or a Queens or Jordanstown law lecture and count how many country GAA tops you see, the majority of who I presume would be Sinn Fein voters.

Perhaps you'd prefer things to return to the bad old days when Catholics couldn't get work and were forced to rely on benefits to survive.

Not to mention Barristers, Gallsman



Good to see you have resigned yourself to acceptance of SF dominance all the same  ;)

Did anyone see this pack of clowns on over the weekend? That Richie one is an absolute nightmare. She has no charisma, no humour, no intellect and ... I could go on. Shower of arrogant Castle Snobs..

Solicitors Doctors & Lawyers Party.
You're right about that bundle of joy that is Margaret Richie; and it's because of her lack of charisma, humour, intellect, charm, tactical awareness, personality etc that I hope & pray she remains as the stoops leader, and with any luck will do untold damage to their electoral prospects.

Rant over.

Solicitors and Lawyers are the same thing ::)

2. Is that all you have to say about my post? Does that mean you agree with everything else?

I don't understand this snobbery for such professions, especially (as has already been pointed out) as there are plenty of SF voters at University aiming to join those ranks. They may tick the SF box, but they don't want no 'average industrial wage'.

Also even (or especially) in the darkest days, getting a good education was always highly valued in the Catholic community. That having a profession is a source of ridicule baffles me.

Although I'm sure you'd never call on the services of a Doctor, Solicitor or Lawyer yourself NS.

I'd rather you explained why being a professional was such a source of ridicule.

Professions a source of ridicule? I don't remember ridiculing any professions.

Sinn Fein dominance?! Oh right, you mean in the occupied six counties. By being so narrow minded and limiting your scope you're not really buying into the whole "we're an all-Ireland party" ideal, are you? So, in reality, you can't really consider yourself a Republican. How disappointing for you.

You remark on snobbery (which is just prejudice) and then crudely attempt to insult certain professions. Is that not snobbery?

So you've just found out you're a snob and you're not even a Republican? I'd call that a bad evening all round.

So what was the purpose of the 'Solicitors Doctors & Lawyers Party' line?

A reference to the SDLP being a party which markets itself towards the "middle classes" and maintains minimal interest in the "working class" communities. The Alliance Party, in other words.

I've seen Sinn Fein out and about the Malone Road on many occasions. Is this not marketing to the middle class?

I thought it was generally a reference to the background of the party's elected representatives. I also thought the 'S' stood for Schoolteachers.

Glad to have clarified my point. Apologies for any mass confusion.
