A constitutional referendum?

That is apparently what Peter Robinson thinks the European Parliament election on 4 June actually is.

At the launch of the DUP manifesto, Peter Robinson gave a speech in which he said that: "The European election is the only Province-wide poll and is regarded as a test of Northern Ireland’s constitutional position."

So the cat, never well hidden, is out of the bag. The DUP really do see all elections as part of the constant process of constitutional referenda. They are right, of course, but nonetheless it must be worrying them, as election after election sees unionism's slim lead being whittled away.

...and continue your preference to give the SDLP your no. 2.
With a bit (or maybe a lot) of luck we will hear them cry and tear themselves apart in public. It would be great gas!
A sign of things to come!

The SDLP that is....

Dazzler said...

Would it not be better to tranfer to a nationalist party than not to tranfer at all?

hoboroad said...

Yes it would be nice to transfer to a Nationalist party but the SDLP should come out and say it is Pro-United Ireland.Did it not say it was a post-nationalist party and is more interested taking it's seats at westminister with the salaries and perks that go with it than representing the nationalist people.
