    Default Sinn Fein retain Fermanagh South Tryone seat

    A court ruled that Michelle Gildernew was duly elected as MP for Fermanagh and South Tyrone. The unionists must be muttering curses that the Shinners have put one over them yet again. Now I wonder what theory's will Criumh and the gang try to come up with to try and portray this as a unionist 'victory' ?

    Sad that the people of Fermanagh South Tyrone, in a time of economic crisis, will continue to be without a say in the United Kingdom's government.

    She won by a few votes and basically it was a very few votes;

    but thats democracy for you- you either love it and abide by it,

    or you disregard it, just like shame fein and their criminal wing did.

    Funny how shame fein are going to Court in the south saying that Donegal

    is without effective representation because of the lack of by-election

    - yet the shame fein MP's refusalto take their seats in Parliament doesnt seem to

    cross their mind.

    Not bad going for the provos considering the bigotry of the local unionist community in standing a single candidate.

    She won by 4 votes . What's the point of SF taking their seats at Westminister. To go there to be told by the Brit MP's that " Ulsta is British " ?

    Congratulations on beating the undemocratic "Unionist unity" candidate.

    Serves them right for treating their electorate like a herd instead of giving them a democratic choice.

    As for Westminster, last time I watched the NI section on television the whole chamber treated it like a lunch break, constantly being told to be quiet etc.
    It's such an ignorant place which merely degrades politicians from here and exposes how little they care about this place.

    It serves no purpose being there, the Tories inflict whatever they want here and no-one can stop them.
    This is the Tories who ran for election here and won ZERO seats.
    Why should SF waste their time in there being dictated to?

    Their electorate chose SF supporting their decision not to waste their time in London, that's democracy.
    The SDLP should do the same.
    What are they at walking past that statue of Cromwell and taking an oath to the Queen, this is 2010 Irish Republicans aren't interested in the extremist British politics which are stuck in silly imperial time warp.

    They should be more interested in the EU, where people can discuss matters in a civilised manner and actually enforce change.

    They had a democratic choice. They could either vote for somebody who would represent them or somebody who wouldn't. They chose somebody who wouldn't. Are you suggesting we should have no say in parliament? That sounds despotic to me.

    Unionists were told who to vote for, they had 1 candidate.
    Gladly this backfired.

    Yes I am saying we should have no say in that Parliament, I suggest you worry about where you live instead of Britain.
    I believe we should run our own affairs, not sit swamped amongst British politicians who outnumber us vastly and exert their reckless unsuitable policies on us.

    As a voter that's what I want, us to look after our own interests.
    I don't exist to serve them and I don't think anyone from here should waste their time in Westminster.

    It might have escaped your notice, but the people of Fermanagh South Tyrone did have their say. And it so happens they don't want it to be in London.
    We are all born mad. Some remain so.

    Ah it's the sad pr!ck.com arís; still whining about SF actually implementing their promise not to take seats in London, but to stay in Ireland's 2nd city to represent their growing band of voters.

    Well done young Gildernew; I rem your granny starting the Civil Rights struggle by standing up, like Rosa Parks, against bigotry. You are a credit to her.

    Michelle is a worthy successor to the heroic Bobby Sands MP, who was the 1st person I ever voted for. WooHoo!
