    I'm living in America, and in America, you're on your own. America's not a country. It's just a business. Now f***ing pay me.

    Bye bye PUP.

    Good idea - badly implemented.

    Ah well, makes room for the Labour party if they ever get their act together and run here.
    Love me. Cherish me. I'm a unionist.

    Absolutely true , there's a new generation of unionists / loyalists who , unlike those before them , will not be duped by the spoofers in the DUP / UUP who, up to now , had only to play the sectarian card to get the troops in line.
    Not unlike the nationalist / republican side where slowly people now realilse that SF are about as genuine re a republican / socialist revolution as a four pound note.

    Cricket I think he meant the UK labour party is that what you mean ?

    You would have thought that the PUP could have done better electorally given the amount of working class loyalist folk about . I myself might have voted for them if they weren't linked to a paramilitary . I agree with BC about the idea being poorly carried out .

    All the stuff I read from them or watched on the net was very thoughtful at least and a lot of it I really agreed with but centauro said that the reality is a lot different. I would sooner still vote for Dawn Purvis though than PSF.

    It depends who would stand though . Would vote for David Ervine or Dawn types . Intelligent and capable .

    Maintaining links was and is important. But it was meant to be with a view to reigning in the UVFs criminality. Reading between the lines, it seemed that after the Moffet murder the PUP hierarchy didn't want to take action, so Purvis had to go to maintain her own integrity.

    Yes , I think you would have no hope of the Irish Labour party gaining cross community support there.
