A break-up coming? Will she give him his walking papers? Show him the door?
“C’mon and sit down here, beside me pet,
Miss Unionist GFA Northern Ireland
We need to have a word. It’s about this upcoming election of yours”.
“I know you’ve already got
your frock for the big Results night.
But I hope you’re not thinking of bringing
Lyal Arders as your Significant Other, are you?”
Your relationship with Lyal Arders just isn’t working.
Personally I don’t know what you ever saw in him. I know he’s your brother,
Irish Jack Bull’s best friend – they’ve been very close for a long, long time, well before you were even born
But that’s no reason for you to keep on with him.
Just look at the way he dresses.
He’s far too old for you with his old-time 1690 mentality and morality
You can’t even manage to pass your driving test because you’re constantly looking over your shoulder at him
He has his obsessions.
You can’t do anything about them love, can you?
You’ll not stop him marching around, forcing his way into places where’s he’s not wanted, will you?
He’s beyond your help – over 4,000 marches a year I heard at the last count.
That works out at over 10 times a day. If that’s not obsessive behaviour I don’t know what is.
See a psychiatrist, he should.
He’s a big bruiser and he doesn’t care about you.
He’s always piggy-backing on to your Unionist parties, taking over your Assembly on the sly, promoting his own agenda. You’ve no idea who your real friends are because you don’t know if people support him or you
“You’re not clever enough to sort them Taigs out ” he says.
He’s more trouble than he’s worth, pet.
I know you’ve got a joint credit card because things were getting tight, austerity wasn’t it? Yet the word’s out he’s busy helping to squander your money on some bird-brained heating scheme called Cash for Ash
Lyal Arders and his mates voted for BREXIT! didn’t they?
when you want to stay in Europe. You want to keep adding EU funds into your bank account.And why wouldn’t you?
They want to squander your money on Nukes, Palaces, Heating Schemes, Aircraft carriers, Trains to nowhere, New airports .
All the while you’re running about skint. No money for the dentists or the doctors. Hardly enough for your hairdresser and make-up. The road’s that bad outside your house, anyone would be afraid to step out let alone drive along it!
It’s not good enough, love
He’s now running about with the vicar’s daughter, that geography teacher
who wangled her way into that top level managerial position. She’s fallen out with all your neighbours and is busy flirting with some fat, tanned businessman from the golf club. But Lyal Arders doesn’t care – Oh no, he thinks he’s so important to both of them. He’s got fingers in pies in Scotland
where the golf man’s family comes from.
I’m telling you,love, he’s past it, he’s bad for you.
Lyal Arders won’t change.
I know you gave Lyal Arders one more chance back in 2013 when that lovely American counsellor Mr Haas was around trying to help you. I even showed you a letter about Lyal Arders
but you paid no attention.
Lyal Arders has drained your confidence
Your Unionist supporters can hardly stand on their own two feet without him. He keeps telling them they can’t cope without him.
It’s time to dump him, petal. Say goodbye to
Orangemen and their Lyal Arders
The stress is killing you.
Look at the weight of voters you’ve lost.
Have a word with him and get it sorted.
Tell Lyall Arders to form his own party, write his own manifesto, propose candidates and canvass voters to elect him.
That’s what people do in democratic societies, isn’t it?
Let him stand under his own colours and then you’ll see how many people really support him
And you’ll see the type of person you can be without him constantly dragging you back into re-living his fantasy of
Comments and Queries:
A gigantic Conflict of Interest is no longer acceptable in Northern Ireland.
It derives from Loyal Orders piggy-backing into power on Unionist parties .
Unionist voters do not know what they are voting for – party policy or Loyal Order policy?
Or are the two inextricably linked, never to be separated out, for as long as Stormont exists?
Will breaking the connection between the Loyal Orders and Unionist parties be one of Sinn Fein’s demands in the up-coming post-election negotiations? Shouldn’t it be?
Why don’t Unionist parties promote only the political reasons for supporting the Union, only candidates who are not members of Loyal Orders and canvass for votes accordingly?
If the Loyal Orders want to exert political power, let them form their own party and stand their candidates under their own colours! They would have 2 things to offer their voters: support for the Union + their own particular anti-Catholic views and sectarian way of life.
Let’s all see if that’s still a winning combination!
And whether the Orange State will live on!!
Because it does live on at this present moment in time,
hiding in full sight as it’s nested within Unionist parties.
