The Dup Madwagon Rolls On

Recommended Posts

With Arlene Foster being given the heave-ho because of Brexit and not hating gays sufficiently, the front runner to take charge is Edwin Poots

 

His views are as comedic as his name, he is a creationist who believes the Earth is only 6000 year olds. I would love to put him in a room full of paleontologists - DAYN'T TARK TA MAY ABITE PAYLEANTALAGISTS.

 

Why are so many Unionists so weird?

He’s the new leader, does this mean we can’t call them dinosaurs anymore?

I wonder what he thinks of our philandering PM shagger Johnson? When the history of the DUP comes to be written this could go down as the Poots putsch.

I imagine he thinks like most of the rest of us do. 

 

We may find his beliefs strange, but he doesn't seem to shout about them and he seems to be rather more prgamatic than you would expect from both being a young earth creationist and also a member of the DUP. 

 

I guess time will tell how good he is. It appears that while party leader, he will let another member be first minister and he will concentrate on the party. That seems quite a canny move and removes all sorts of distracting/stupid questions/comments about his beliefs at a time when people need to be fully focussed on NI's problems.

Do you think the Earth is 6000 years old?

Err no it's 4.5 billion years old. Most of me was there... 

 

I may not agree with his views on the age of the earth but there seems to be more to him than that.  I hope there is, or NI is more stuffed than it is now. The articles about him imply there is. 

 

I'm very well aware that people with these beliefs tend to have other beliefs which I would find much harder to deal with but I have no idea one way or the other if he holds them. Until I know for certain then I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt.  If I lived there or I actually had to interact with him then I might feel differently but as neither apply I am content as long as he leaves his beliefs at the church gate.  

 

Of course, if he tries to change northern ireland into some sort of fundamentalist christian state then thats a different kettle of fish but I presume he wont. The DUP may be bonkers but as far as I know, they aren't generally suicidal.

I'm looking forward to new DUP leadership it should be so much fun watching them trying their hardest to remove the Irish sea border. Despite some of the world's best politicians been ask to do the impossible task on what to do about the border do we put in the sea ? DUP  say no perhaps on Ireland itself then?  dam the Belfast Agreement gets in the way perhaps outer space is more to liking of the DUP? 

 

They are impossible.

The DUP get roughly the same share of the vote in Northern Ireland as the Labour Party currently get in the UK.  

 

Do you think the Labour Party are also impossible and so much fun watching?

There is roughly two percent between them.

 

Which was an enormous  winning margin in the EU referendum, according to you.
