A great deal of "political analysis" has gone on in order to understand the mysterious voting patterns of the "Unionist" community.
It is clear a large section of the "Unionist" community no longer vote. It is even clearer a large section of the former DUP electorate no longer vote.
Hence we have a big problem to explain. If a large section of the "Unionist" electorate no longer vote, how does the vote of the Kincora Old Boys Association (formerly known as the DUP) manage to stay reasonably buoyant?
The puzzle is easily solved, though it has gone undetected by ALL the "political and academic" analysts. It is a manifestation of an ancient phenomenon known as the SAP factor! (Sodomites, Adulterers and Pervos)
Thanks to the sterling work of Iris, Willie, Jeffrey, Pam and Meryvn all the Sodomites, Adulterers and Pervos who never had anyone they could safely vote for, now have a party they can all vote for! Safe in the knowledge they have worthy champions to persue their various nefarious causes.
Plus, they have the advantage of knowing their electoral favourites will be protected at all costs especially by Super Injunctions!
All the former disaffected Unionist voters have been replaced by SAPs!
The SAP Factor was first detected thousands of years ago in Sodom and Gommorah. It was this political phenomenon which led to Lot being elected to a postion of prominence in the cities of the plain!
Unfortunately all Lot`s plans went up in smoke!
10 And Lot lifted up his eyes, and beheld all the plain of Jordan, that it was well watered every where, before the LORD destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah, even as the garden of the LORD, like the land of Egypt, as thou comest unto Zoar.
11 Then Lot chose him all the plain of Jordan; and Lot journeyed east: and they separated themselves the one from the other.
12 Abram dwelled in the land of Canaan, and Lot dwelled in the cities of the plain, and pitched his tent toward Sodom.
13 But the men of Sodom were wicked and sinners before the LORD exceedingly.
