Are we really so uneducated that we vote orange or green
« on: January 05, 2019, 02:03:42 PM »
 I don't believe we are. And I don't think the currant politicians realise what they have set the next politicians up for. Working class. Middle class. All of us are squeezed, and no matter what foster god I hate her arrogance, and her whole bloody party says .politicians have been found out they have been laid bare. The man in the street could have done better as a protestant I cannot stand this party but I would like my catholic  neighbours to express there opinions

Leslie-bringing such a Thread onto the Forum in 2019-the year only a pup.

You express your hatred for a certain lady.

Are we so uneducated that we vote Orange or Green?
Many of us may be educated in ways outside of the normal `curriculum`.

Your `neighbours `may or may not contribute to your Thread giving you the responses
you desire.

Good luck with it, and as Happy a New Year as you can ascertain with the views you hold.

Leslie 55 -I ought to have said in my first post-Welcome to the Forum.
Apologies for not doing so!
I do understand what your saying-where your coming from in your posts.
As far as I am concerned, all Members who post on the Forum are entitled
to their opinions and views.
I may have many personal opinions about their reasons, for ,in some cases -
trying to raise the anti shall we say-but to be honest it does not upset me or
get `my dander `up`!
At the heels of the hunt-this is only a wee bit of `cyber space`!!!
Crack on Leslie and enjoy!

jilly :)

I'm not so sure what is to be gained by insulting people by calling them ugly ? Seems a bit childish to me. You are obviously not a DUP supporter which is your choice. But remember, they are the largest party in Northern Ireland, so plenty of people must listen to them and vote for them.  ::)

Yes when it comes to elections in N.Ireland the politicians give the usual war cries, No Pope here from the Prods, Brits out by other side Twigs or Fenians .Same as sports  chants.
Hopefully as  young people   are  mixing  and   socialising  today,  that  these     practiced  carry on   and   they  think  for themselves.  There  are  no poor  politicians,   going  up  to their
fancy  houses  and   making  bundles of  cash  from real estate.
Today they are still being paid for no work.
Think  before  you  put   your.   X  they  ballot paper

I've voted SDLP a couple of times in the past when I lived in a rural area because the candidate really was the best person for the job , the DUP and UU candidates were definitely not and it had the added bonus of keeping the Shinners out.

Before becoming bedridden I voted  for   them  Alliance party
like yourself  I  thought. he .was . best  candidate.
I  would  never  vote  DUP.   Or   Sinn Fein.
I feel   they  were  part  of troubled  by  incitement, and the    spinners   were   active   participants   and   should  never  Bern
 allowed   a    role   in   government.

"Nov 2016"
https://www.reddit.com/r/northernireland/comments/5agc37/why_do_people_still_vote_for_the_dup/

"Why Do People Still Vote For The DUP ?"

"In particular Arlene Foster? After all the recent stuff about her and the DUP it seems like a lot of people are against them so why are they still top dog in NI politics doesn't make any sense, surely for the next elections the people of NI won't vote along tribal lines no more right ?"

"59 Comments",

"KapiTod 2 years ago"
"Well only 54% of our registered voters did actually vote at the last election. DUP got 29% of that vote, so yeah the majority are against them."

"We've 1.8 million people living here, and the DUP are kept in power by 200,000 of them."

Anyone who has lived in NI for even a short time must realise that you could get a dog elected if you hung a DUP or Sinn Fein sign around his neck. It doesn't matter a bit about the quality or qualifications of the candidate so long as they have the right sign around their neck.
It's been like that forever and there's no real sign of any change happening soon.

Unfortunately there is truth in what you say , "if my Da voted DUP / Sinn Fein that's good enough for me " etc etc , I once had to give a swift history lesson to a guy I worked with about the history of the Independent Orange Order. An intelligent guy who had been brainwashed by DUP rhetoric and genuinely believed that the order was founded by Ian Paisley Senior ! He was shocked to find out that the Order was founded long years before Ian Paisley was even a dirty thought in his Da's head and founded for reasons far removed from his beliefs .
