It is quite obvious to me, from the odd way our political set-up is here, that the electorate in Northern Ireland will have no real say on June 8 in deciding on the next government of the UK.
However, one thing they can do is to send a clear message of disapproval to their own politicians, who have consistently failed them. This can be achieved by voting for all parties - except the DUP and Sinn Fein.
Ask yourself: have the DUP and Sinn Fein solved poverty in west and east Belfast, have they attracted inward investment and created jobs? No.
Sinn Fein, similarly, has not created any jobs in its fiefdoms anywhere - except for its party stalwarts.
Make June 8 a Protest Vote Day. You know it makes sense.
