Choosing potential political representatives from a sectarian standpoint results in a dearth of intellectually qualified candidates in local government.  That's why our elected assembly was a disaster during the time they governed our little province.  Just think of the 'intellectual giants' we were lumbered with as ministers.  Four of them actually believed that the universe was around 6,000 years old. These are people who we rely on to manage our health and hospitals and run our essential services. The sad thing is that things won't get any better until our voting habits change.

"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."

The DUP get their vote out on the night. No real secret to their success.  ::)

The crux of Our divisions is partition. Until it is ended, instability will continue.
Its simply a fact.

Hopefully they'll get the time and opportunity to try to do  that.
