Celebrity Stormont

Now that Fearghal McKinney (SDLP) has joined his former Ulster TV News colleague Mike Nesbitt (UUP) in Stormont…it is surely time to throw out the 106 other MLAs and replace them with our best loved journalists and celebrities.
I daresay that Stormont is a reflection of our Society.
Surely UTV and BBC are a reflection of our Society. …say 50% unionist/loyalist, 40% nationalist/republican and a mere 10% letsgetalongerist.

So….

  1. I am certain you are incorrect in those percentages. The Northern Ireland Last Tango survey reported it to be 40% Loyalist/Unionist, 10% Republican, and 50% Letgetalongerist/OurWeeCountry/Bestplaceeverintheworldist.

    Celebs don’t perform at the polls in my fuzzy memory. Anyone got numbers, martin lewis springs to mind?

    I meant Martin Bell, doh. Glenda Jackson I’d rate, though scraped last election. Just think that Fearghal will suffer if he brings up his media experience. Maybe naive of the SDLP faithful to confuse media popularity with political popularity?

    On the topics of celebrities and politics……

    I would be very happy to see Clarkson lose!

    • Publicity Seeking.
      “Jordan” (Katy Price) did the same.
      Clarkson standing….might femind people of his statement two years ago that strikers should be taken out and shot in front of their families.
      He rode that controversy out on the basis that he was joking.
      Standing for Parliament would bring it all back and other Tory bast@@ds would lose votes.
