"The Secretary of State has said she initially did not understand that nationalists did not vote for unionist parties during elections.

Karen Bradley said she did not comprehend that campaigns are generally fought within each part of the community.

She told The House magazine that it was "a very different world from the world I came from".

Mrs Bradley was appointed in January to replace James Brokenshire.

Mr Brokenshire stepped down for medical reasons.

"I didn't understand things like when elections are fought for example in Northern Ireland - people who are nationalists don't vote for unionist parties and vice-versa," Mrs Bradley told House magazine, a weekly publication for the Houses of Parliament.

"So, the parties fight for election within their own community.

"Actually, the unionist parties fight the elections against each other in unionist communities and nationalists in nationalist communities," she added."

It would appear the British Tories know as much about Ireland as they do about the poor, disabled and the most vulnerable in society.

She's an incompetent disaster as was the last one (Joe 90) .. neither of them have/had a clue about over here but I would still prefer both to their 2 previous incarnations .. i.e. Theresa Villiers & Owen Patterson ... Patterson is an especially nasty little crackpot .. a right little f***** if ever there was one :?

Tories eh, who'd trust them anyway .. oh wait :roll:

Electoral swing is part of British politics due to its first past the post system.

The most astonishing thing about this is that she wasn't even slightly ashamed to admit it. As pointed out in the Guardian article below, she was 26 years old when the GFA was signed.

I must say that having observed British politics for over 50 years, the current leading figures in the Tory party are the most inept bunch of losers in all that time. It's underscored further by the fact that the two front-runners in the race to replace TM are the serial liar and all-round bounder, Boris Johnson, and a Bertie Wooster impersonator who believes that women impregnated by rapists should not have the right to a termination.

She is a token figurehead that is all

- she is not a decision maker.

No surprise she hadn't a clue about the North

- like most British people over there.

- they haven't a clue

- and are not interested one way or another...

You obviously have not "got it" pal, I thought #9 might have put you in the right direction.

Most astute politicos knew the DUP had their paws in the till, no whistleblowing, which, in turn, assured a full blown Judicial inquiry into their skulduggery and theft from the UK taxpayers...……..so much for their "Christian values":lol:

Listen folks, I am being very serious here in the comments I am to make................I know more about the conflict in Ireland than the whole talking shop at Westminster which claims sovereignty over a place they know FA about.
