Its a shame that the minority of 178,000 SF/IRA voters can't agree with it!
-----------------------------
SF voters are not necessarily IRA supporters. Their vote only increased when the IRA violence stopped. It was 1983 before SF could win a seat on the Falls. Even the Republican icon Countess Markovich couldn't; get elected. http://www.belfasttelegraph.co.uk/opinion/columni...

But it is just an article by Gail Walker.
--------------------------------------
If that is a reply to me. I was referring to the Irish Times Article quoted by WhatWasThat13.
There are and always have been 3 sides in NI and the biggest group now are the ones not aligned to Nationalism or Unionism. 50% of the population are neither Nationalist or Unionist and that figure is projected to grow, The best bit is they are the solution.

Try as hard as they might, they still can not stem the snowball of votes towards SF...
------------------------------
Lets not get carried away. SF Polled 178,000 votes in the last elections from an electorate of over 1.2 million.
Since SF became the leading Nationalist Party the combined Nationalist Vote has fallen.
They represent 14.9% of the Electorate. That means over 85% don't support them.

The article is scathing of Sinn Fein...............
Last week, shortly before Gerry Adams was arrested, Northern Ireland Secretary, Theresa Villiers announced there would be no independent inquiry into the Ballymurphy killings. Sinn Féin rightly pointed to the outrageous double standard implied here. But Villiers also announced that there would be no inquiry into the hideous La Mon hotel fire-bombing in 1978, when the IRA incinerated 12 members of, of all things, the Irish Collie Club. The families of the La Mon victims believe, rightly or wrongly, that transcripts of police interviews with IRA suspects relating to this disgusting crime were deliberately removed from the files in order to protect senior figures of importance for the peace process. Did Sinn Féin complain about the continuing failure to give the La Mon families the comfort of truth? Of course not – it has double standards about double standards.

I hope you don't go to Queens. You have no idea of what logic is from that analogy.

cynical Unionists and securocrats to further their 'criminalize Republicanism' agenda.
------------------------------------
The IRA were left criminalised by Sinn Fein. You can't blame the unionists on that.

What else do you want to ban? Last year it was music. What about alcohol? Surely some Muslim Students could be offended at that? How about pork or non halal food?

Student and Sinn Fein activist Sean Fearon states without reservation on todays BBC Nolan show he does not support the sale of poppies..

He is opposed to the motion but cannot deny the students the right to debate the motion
--------------------------------------------------
You're definitely mixed up today. It makes no sense to oppose the sale of poppies and be opposed to the motion that he himself brought.

Are you sure you're not mixing him up with someone else? I'm pretty sure Nolan said Fearon refused to come on the show.

Sounds like a good breakers yard would make a fortune.
