Vote splintering weakens Unionism | Gavin Robinson MP


At the last election some people argued that you can’t split the vote in a Proportional Representation election, they were left red faced however when the results were declared as their theory was proved wrong in practice.

North Antrim was the clearest example of a constituency where too many Unionist candidates led to a splintering of the vote and enabled a non-Unionist to be elected ahead of a fourth Unionist.

I want to see as many unionists as possible returned to council chambers across Northern Ireland. Particularly in Belfast and the West, Sinn Fein has driven an anti-British policy through our Councils. Elections are the time send a message that you want to restore the balance.

This election is an opportunity to elect a strong Unionist team in each Council to stand up for those of us who want to see Northern Ireland prosper. People therefore must first and foremost be registered and then ensure they maximise the strength of their vote.

Brexit vindicated: EU 'declares economic war' on Hungary in new assault on democracy

Story by David Maddox  
Britain's decision to leave the European Union (EU) has been further "vindicated", according to a senior Brexiteer, after it emerged last night that Brussels officials led by Ursula von der Leyen are planning yet another assault on democracy on the continent.
The Financial Times revealed that the European Commission has drawn up a plan to sabotage Hungary's economy if Viktor Orbán blocks a 50 billion euro aid package to Ukraine this week.

16/10/23 My Question to all Unionist Parties here in Northern Ireland, UK: With regard to the question of the 'Warm Home Discount Scheme' practiced in the Sovereign State of Great Britain', why does this scheme 'NOT APPLY in Northern Ireland', IF Northern Ireland still remains an integral part of the Sovereign State of Great Britain & Northern Ireland, UK? Unionists of all hues are obviously fully aware of this blatant discrimination against Northern Ireland citizens, as Danny Kinahan, Ulster Unionist Party member for South Antrim posed the question below as far back as 2017! So, where are the Unionist and DUP Unionist, and TUV Unionist Party voices on this vital matter? Time to put Ulster First Unionist gentlemen and ladies! Wa…

J. Bryson Piece , June 30th: "Lord Justice McCloskey in Allister et al: NI belongs more to the EU… than the UK”.


My comment: Sure we told the DUP and Sammy Wilson this fact months ago on Centre for the Union site!


The UK State of Great Britain & Northern Ireland, UK, no longer exists, if Article 6 of the Acts of Union are accepted as having been 'disapplied', and the bastard son of the N.I. Protocol i.e. the Windsor Framework are legally applied and surrendered to by Northern Ireland politicians.


The 'done deal' referred to by 'Risky' Sunak immediately splits Northern Ireland from Great Britain, and places us legally and immorally within the Sovereign…

Yet more fear tactics from the DUP, a rudimentary analysis of the May 22 Assembly final election results following transfers, shows that choice enhances the unionist vote.

Given the appalling recorded of the DUP since 2007, (happy to list their failings, capitulations, and total lack of strategy to counter SF) we have reached, indeed passed the time for substantive changes for unionist political representation.

A sizeable, and growing number of unionists are now wise to the DUP party first tactics, unionism needs a strong coalition to represent all,

The largest designation at Stormont is still unionist, but through DUP ineptitude and self serving “strategy” the First Minister post has been gifted to SF through the changes through the St Andrews…

Vote splintering weakens Unionism!

Gavin Robinson MP states: "I want to see as many unionists as possible returned to council chambers across Northern Ireland. Particularly in Belfast and the West, Sinn Fein has driven an anti-British policy through our Councils. Elections are the time send a message that you want to restore the balance.

My Reply: On the subject of "Vote splintering weakens Unionism" I would ask Gavin Robinson to check my mid 1990s personal response to such a vital topic - which I presented at DUP Headquarters to his DUP colleagues, Mr Peter Robinson, and Mr Ian Paisley jnr - and discover the only credible, long-term remedy for 'vote splintering' here in Ulster: the immediate creation of…

It would be nice if you could learn how to use the comment without pasting the entire article. You ask where ulster would be with a United unionist voice. I assume you mean N. Ireland. It does not take much to see where we would be as for a long while we were in that position. Unionism needs to grow up and accept there are more pressing needs for people and the longer they focus on flags and protocols the more they weaken their position
