No but I am from Skin town I saw on the BBC website what is happening but who is the Independent? Gripping.

Ooh and as for Mr Robinson...

SomeGuy · 07/05/2010 09:24

the independent is a unionist unity candidate to defeat Sinn Fein

My thoughts are with the disenfranchised voters of Fermanagh & South Tyrone

ASecretLemonadeDrinkerDAVE · 07/05/2010 15:06

Did they have problems too?

I was referring to the fact that they now have an MP who will not sit in Parliament.

ASecretLemonadeDrinkerDAVE · 07/05/2010 15:09

O. Well, more people should have voted then [bothered] Obviously the majority don't care though and that decision has to be respected I cannot believe it was over 21,000 votes apiece and it came down to 4. When I heard it was tight I thought it would be low thousands.

It was always going to be tight - that's why the Unionists stood behind a unity candidate.

Someguy - I agree totally. I posted on another thread about this - I don't see the point (other policies aside) of voting for a party that is never going to do anything with your vote coz they won't go sit in the parliament.

How is it different to a spoilt ballot or not going out at all?
