Colum Eastwood, the leader of the middle class Catholic soft unionist party the SDLP (Stoop Down Low Party) addressed the UUP conference today and told the function that he "wanted to see closer co-operation between the two parties."

In his speech, Mr Eastwood, who has a grey patch on his trendy hipster beard due to a melanin deficiency affecting facial hair pigmentation, said the two parties had different policies and different visions of the future. "Our Irish nationalism and your unionism will not seamlessly fit any time soon," he said.

"However, this difference does not diminish our ability to pursue the commonality of our immediate cause. Both the SDLP and the Ulster Unionists share the common ground of wanting to make Northern Ireland work."

Mike Nesbitt for UTV attacked both SF and the DUP and said that he "not only wanted to see a post-sectarian society in Northern Ireland, but also a "post-peace process society". Some members of the audience who weren't sound asleep heard this, were mightily impressed, and suddenly jolted upright in their chairs.

So, orange unionism and soft green unionism are now in official opposition and are collaborating to shape the new middle ground in NI politics, with a view to regaining their former positions as the leaders of middle class Protestant unionism and soft middle class Catholic unionism respectively, and by using hair gel, growing patchy beards and issuing vague and ineffectual words and sh1t.

In other (more exciting) news - a pigeon flew from Ballycastle to the coast of Scotland today.

He isn't coming back.

People started calling the SDLP "Stoops" in the 80's with the acronym "Stoop Down Low Party" after they took seats in the Stormont Assembly and accepted an internal solution.
That Shinners still call them that is ironic.

There was no Stormont assembly in the 1980s, we had direct rule from Westminster. The Shinners are open to criticism for signing up to the GFA and administering British rule in the 6 counties, but as we all know, it's just strategy and a means to an end.

The green brand of 80°-proof tribalist Lundy talk.

Fit for use cleaning the bottom of the monkey cage in the zoo.

Certainly unfit for human consumption.
Are you capable of communicating in comprehensible terms?
