A woman is female, a man is male.What is your definition of a woman? Because it sure is different to mine, a women is a adult female, a man is an adult male.
Now I am going to join my other half, a adult male, in bed and I suggest you do the same with your teddy bear.
If the system was first past the post I'd agree but with PR the 2nd, 3rd preference will go conservative too. Even if they do take a few seats from the bigger parties they'll still support FF or FG and use their support as leverage to push conservative policies. In reality what alternative does the electorate have? The fantasists on the looney left!I'd be quite pleased and I suspect one or two senior bods in FGF would be happy as well to see the socially conservative rural rump start a move toward the door.
It would split the nutter vote all over the place in rural constituencies and mostly I suspect in 'dynasty' constituencies down the country which wouldn't be a bad thing. It would force the FGF to stand a candidate against their own former vote-getter in some cases.
Essentially I think this would backfire overall as the Peig Sayers vote divides and conquers itself.
