Does it matter if its the Shinners or SDLP  who speak for the nationalists?   Doesn't it boil down to the unionist pleb resent nationalists because of a perception that nationalists are doing bettter than them, whereas in the past the unionist pleb could tolerate their own misery because the nationalist pleb was worse off.
Was there not a Nolan show on how some  unionist politicians  were annoyed about Uni students wearing GAA shirts on campus. Not only are they getting educated but they're swamping the place out and throwing it at our faces.

The new one is about how the Holylands is 90%+ Catholic...

How did this happen, and can you imagine what the reaction would be if it was 90%+ Protestant...
Ben Lowry already has an article on it

Lowry needs to do a bit more legwork on this one.

Even if the stat on the Holylands is correct (and I donít know whether it is or not) what is the significance?

Is it to do with the numbers of catholicís/Protestants going to university?
Is it to do with the numbers choosing NI universities or elsewhere?
Is it the numbers travelling or living away from home?
Is it the numbers choosing the Holylands vs other areas in Belfast?

Lowry might have a story but he hasnít proven it yet

You expect students to be open minded he says...

I would expect a journalist like that to be open minded but that's not the case.

The Holyland being >90% Taig is hardly surprising, it was a Catholic culchie ghetto two decades ago and I doubt it is much different today.
