A Limerick A Day


Sinn Fein’s Michelle O’Neill (left) and the DUP’s Arlene Foster hold power in an assembly that has not sat for 17 months

When it comes to not getting things done
The northerners are number one
Since Sinn Féin agree
With the DUP
That the best course of action is none.

    …at the last Stormont and Westminster elections the shinners got an increased vote in both elections which mandated them to do exactly what they are doing…pretty sad day when Broadsheet are joining the chorus of ‘croppy lie down’…

        …mandates are bestowed by virtue of the democratic process…you and I mightn’t agree with the outcomes decided by these processes but that’s democracy…

          The democratic process might be sacrosanct but the outcomes aren’t above criticism, and it’d be a poor democracy where you could’;t decry an outcome that lead to this kind of deadlocked paralysis in the face of an impending crisis like Brexit.

          1. bisted

            …there can be few better examples of paralysis than the situation in NI where a majority voted against Brexit yet it is being imposed with no regard to that majority…the people pushing the hard brexit agenda include the DUP who Broadsheet are encouraging the shinners to bow down to…

          2. Nigel

            Since all this is to the DUP’s advantage, they’re already bowing down and letting them walk all over them.

          3. bisted

            …the shinners reached an agreement in their negotiations with Arlene…not for the first time she was not able to deliver…Arlene does not make the decisions in the DUP…those who do have no interest in sharing power…

      What a silly question! OF COURSE they’re still being paid. Otherwise what’s the point?

        I should have used that question mark that’s backwards. Hang on (uses mad google skillz): it’s called a percontation point.

            I got drunk on warm white Martini on Elba. Slept on a beach.

    The two main leaders in power now must surely be contenders for the world huff championships. Both are far too bitchy to sort anything out. They are the worst of politicians.

    When McGuinness and Paisley were in power progress happened. Remarkably.
