Mark Durkan has today voiced his concern that the DUP could be the only voice from the 6 counties in the House of Commons after May 5th.
Sorry to inform you of this Mark, but the majority of nationalists don't care.
The SDLP might think that it is very clever to swear an oath of allegiance to a foreign queen but the majority of the Nationalist people do not agree. Sinn Féin take a principled stand on absentionism have been backed by the voters in successive elections. In any case, the voting record of SDLP MPs is often so poor that they seem to be following a policy of abstentionism due to laziness, rather than principle.
