Quote of the day

Sinn Fein MP Pat Doherty:
"We are active abstentionists. We receive a mandate from the electorate to represent them in this fashion,"
Difference between "active" and passive abstentionism?

The SDLP are passive abstentionists. They pretend that they represent their constituents, but hardly ever go to Westminster. They keep as quiet as they can about the Oath of Allegience.
