This is Alliance Party HQ in University Street, Belfast. Despite the sunny colour yellow, it has been described as a “cold house”.
Who knows what sinister things go on behind this door. A former member, Ms Kamble has described the people who run the Party as a “tight clique of elitist individuals”.
Are you expecting an Alliance loss anywhere?
Too soon to say.
Why do you hate the Alliance Party so much? (genuine question)
It is easier than liking them.
Genuine answer…they are a dishonest political party, favoured by the NIO and the media.
They are too sanctimonious.
They have a sense of entitlement.
In 2011 they got two Executive seats ..on 52,000 votes.
SDLP and UUP got one seat with 92,000 votes each (these are approx figures).
Is there any good reason why a UUP or SDLP voter should give a second preference to the backstabbing bast***s.
Have they ever been 25 miles outside Belfast?
OK. I’m trying to figure out if there’s anyone I’d be willing to vote this time round. I’m stumped.
Well …I dont think any Party is perfect.
And regardless of your choice Id support your choice. I think abstention is a reasonable choice and GOD knows Im tempted but I think we owe it to those who fought for it.
We are all motivated by Ideals and Self-Interest.
Id always vote for the Party that is closest to my Ideals and Self-Interst. (Thats positive way of looking at it).
The negative way is to vote against the Party that would be damaging to you and yours.
Thanks. Abstention isn’t looking so bad from where I’m hunched. What about the Greens? Or there’s that party supporting legalisation of cannabis. It’s a low point for party politics when I’m left hovering over these.
I would never try to influence anyone to vote as I do.
Your ideals and interests will be different from mine.
Personally I detest the Greens …a pretend “leftist” Party.
PBP? (I’m holding out hope they’re not wholly incompatible with an SDLP supporter!)
I give no advice LOL
