Sinn Féin getting fairly shown up here regarding this welfare reform farce. Seems like they've been caught out spoofing to their electorate and the facts about it are stacking up against them. IMO, it looks like that they've cooked this up to try and win votes from the vulnerable people who would be interested in the welfare reform (that they claim to be looking out for) and they've been caught out. It was either a lie, or they just got the facts and finances completely wrong. Either way their excuses reek of

This is why folks need to protest vote and vote Alliance or Green. It's clear the DUP and Sinn Féin aren't capable of being realistic in running the place. The DUP and their backward views, then Sinn Féin and their blatant spoofing. I don't understand why people cant see through it all.

I don't think I need to go in to reasons why the DUP shouldn't get any votes, but their views on equality is reason enough, alone. Sinn Féin make these wondrous claims to win votes (it would seem by preying on the vulnerable, in this case, and people who actually have real issues and shouldn't be used as political ammunition)... then you've got the stories of SF being involved in IRA sex abuse.

People need to use their vote to show that we don't want this nonsense any more. Stop the tribal nonsense and use your vote to damage these two main parties. It's the only way things will change.

There was enough moderates in East Belfast to vote in Naomi Long as MP previously. There has to be hope...

Not gonna state explicitly who I vote for, but it's parties that are clearly driven by a desire to change, and not by unionism/nationalism.

i dont get this "im not telling you who i vote for shite" we where just discussing this in the office amongst a bunch of us and we have 2 shinners, a DUP'r whom were trying to convince otherwise, an SDLP and a UUP voter.. myself after checking East Antrim constituency ill be voting UUP purely because they where the 2nd biggest party last election and hopefully ill help boot out the DUP..

why so secretive about who you vote for?

0 |

Few months away but already the race is on for all the Prods to announce to the World they don't really vote DUP but everybody else knows they do.

What, so you voted For Brexit but you aren't voting DUP?, dead on.

Yeah, Kilo. It was on a doorway near The MAC, so maybe some art project or something.

Removing the green and orange element for any MLA, what could you say they have done to for the benefit of the greater population?

Stunned to learn Wayne voted DUP. At least someone has takkis bigoted, hate filled back.

The problem Northern Ireland liberals and moderates will always face is that most voters like them have emigrated somewhere else (ie. young people tend to leave in greater numbers than oul gits).

Then again, I suppose Northern Ireland is fairly unique (among western countries) in having a large proportion of the elderly population staunchly supportive of a deeply socialist party.

Anyone who goes on about other people voting DUP is obviously just trying to deflect attention away from their own DUP voting activities. It's like people trying to blame other people for a fart. It's usually them who did it.
