I see the courtier N Ireland media has got itself all excited about this;
Martin McGuinness has proposed a referendum to settle the vexed issue of same-sex marriage in Northern Ireland.
Mr McGuinness got qualified support for his idea from Mark Durkan of the SDLP and Naomi Long of Alliance.
Now then, the REASON that McGuinness is calling for a referendum is because the NI Assembly has yet again VOTED in the issue and it has been voted down. Since the issue cannot be won in the Assembly, McGuinness seeks to get around this via a referendum.
But maybe he has a point, maybe we need to engage in referendum a lot more so here are three that I would like to hold;
1. The restoration of the death penalty for all convicted terrorists. Yes or No
2. Should we stay in the EU or not? A UK wide poll. Yes or No.
3. Should we be part of a United Ireland. Yes or No.
Well, I am sure Marty, Alliance and the SDLP will all agree that we NEED to allow the people to speak on all SORTS of issues.
