It's been portrayed as being with the EU and Irish government though.

Again this should be pulled up on, Boris should be at the top of the bonfire this year but no doubt that will be saved for the first minister of NI lol!

Pulled up by who? No one pulls Johnson on anything - sure he says and does what he likes and then Starmer gets made the villain.

As pointed out by the NI Twitterati the UK Attorney General last night on Question Time slipped in that the Protocol was causing GB businesses to look at basing in NI.

Not a good thing for the Torys I'd have thought..

A Queen’s University professor has suggested that Britain may try to claim back the entire island of Ireland in the event of Sinn Féin leading government in both Belfast and Dublin.

In an opinion piece published by  RTE, Prof Cathal McCall, who teaches European politics and borders at Queen’s, said some Tories still believe Ireland “belongs to Britain”.

“After all, it was Britain’s 100 [years] ago and it still holds a part of it, so why not all of it?”, he added.

The author of the book Border Ireland: From Partition To Brexit, Prof McCall said opinion polls suggest “Sinn Féin will also be the unassailable victor in the next Irish general election”, due to take place in 2025.

“A Sinn Féin taoiseach is in the offing for the first time in the history of the state,” he said.

“What would be the British government’s attitude to Sinn Féin's electoral dominance on the island of Ireland should it materialise?”

Prof McCall said that Britain could “respect the democratic decisions taken, north and south, and pledge to advance British-Irish intergovernmental cooperation with the Irish republican interlopers”.

That shower of f**kers in RTÉ's wet dream.
RTÉ??
That nutcase is hired by Queens University as a professor of History, one that contemplates a scenario where Britain would wage a war against an EU member, a country they don't really give a shít about. The professor's need for attention has overwhelmed him.

Let them riot and burn down their own areas and stop their own bus services. The fight isn't with catholics, its with the British government that brought in the protocol, any deviation away from that should be pulled by the media and questions by those encouraging it and those running it

Oh and its handy that its coming into marching season too :D
I’m sure they’ll find some way to blame the Catholics.

If the media allow it, and at the end of the day they are controlled by in large by the government to a degree, they could spin it that way..

While it was great to see Alliance do well it would have served the Nationalists voters better had more nationalist/republican MLA's been voted in but both sets SF/SDLP have no real love for each other, which is strange because at the core of their political views is a UI...

Been saying that a long time, the nastiness against fellow nationalists(both ways) baffles me. SF pushed Allliance over SDLP to get full control over nationalist community, difficult times ahead now for Alliance I think

I dont know. The middle ground voter is always the sway. Alliance simply were mush more positive and progressive than SDLP, and this had little to do with SF. Nationalists in the main part voted for progressive parties as they want to get on with things..
The national question helps largesse the voting numbers but I think in the main people want a better life and voted for those they feel are best placed to help.    Unionism voted differently  to prioritise the national question rather than any progressive or social improvement agenda.

He might be from QUB, but it was RTÉ who published his tripe. Goes to show that there really is no depth that RTÉ wont sink to in their attempts to scare people away from voting SF. It's laughable, really - "If you vote SF, the Brits will invade the next morning". Bizarre. How did that man become a professor!
