I was just wondering if many SDLP voters identify as British? The SDLP is committed to a United Ireland. How does that play with voters who identify as British?

What do you mean when you say "identify" as British? I dont think anyone is clear what version of "British" you are on about. I for example like the BBC (their news is not great) the NHS used to be great and is still good if your are in a very sick situation. I have used a British passport for getting in and out of Britian.

As for a personal "identity" that would be Tyrone then Ireland.

The SDLP are as British as Mo Farah- both want to be but will never be accepted as loyal Brits -

Well a good question, I mean George Galloway identifies proudly as British national and he wants a United Ireland. Doesn't vote SDLP though.

No the SDLP does not stand foe elections in England so it would be hard for Galloway to give them a preference- saying that the SDLP refuse to stand in 26 Irish counties during elections- the Stoops don't want a preference from a lot of Irish people either-

Plenty of Unionists vote for the SDLP in Westminster elections to keep out the Shinners.

Do you feel a sense of loyalty and an emotional attachment to Britain and icons of British nationalism such as the Queen and the Union flag?

Michael, threatening to do bodily harm to people isn't the best way to ameliorate your reputation.
Mo could be one of those who would love a sail in the boot of a car- I would even throw him the odd sandwich to keep the nasty hunger away- no harm in that-

??

I would never think of Britain as having any particular symbols ie England, Wales, Scotland each have their own wee iconography. I never overly liked Queen but they did have some good tunes. Their is a lot in those 3 countries that I love and enjoy.

The only flag that does drive me nuts is the Irish national flag being abused on flag poles etc.
