Congratulations to Chris Lyttle MLA of Alliance Party for hosting a reception at Stormont tomorrow to mark the fiftieth anniversary of Martin Luther King’s “I Have A Dream” speech.
Hmmm the problem with being as old as I am….I know a spoofer when I see one.
The Alliance Party and Civil Rights?
Any future Alliance leaders get involved in that campaign?
Now theres a thought.
Wasnt Martin Luther King an opponent of Gerrymandering?
So lets consider this?
UUP 16 MLAs…90,000 votes….ONE EXECUTIVE SEAT.
SDLP 14 MLAs …93,000 votes….ONE EXECUTIVE SEAT.
ALLIANCe 8 MLAs…52,000 votes…TWO EXECUTIVE SEATS.
I dont know if Chris Lyttle MLA regards one or other or both DUP and Sinn Fein as convincing Civil Rights supporters. But Alliance are indebted to them for the gift of that second seat.
For sheer chutzpah or sheer bloody cheek, its hard to beat the Alliance Party.
