If Stormont is to be preserved, so will the six counties (even the SDLP concede we're different from the rest of Ireland), so I see no great practical difference from the status quo,not that unionists will ever agree to this or any other form of United Ireland

Anyway, don't talk about the occupied six - they don't exist according to some big GAA men on this board

In other words Unionists would still rule the six counties due to their inbuilt majority,with none of the current checks and balances in place.Not that they will agree to waive their British identity for any form of United Ireland in any event or under any circumstances

I think you mean Unionists would still rule 3 counties / constituencies.
And the dual Nationality feature if the GFA will if course be still there for residents of the North East Autonomous region of the All Ireland State.

No, by the time we have a united Ireland it means we've reached a nationalist majority in the north. If Stormont were retained in its present form it would mean that nationalists would have the upper hand in the north but the same checks and balances would be in place to keep power sharing. This time instead of our ones being the protected minority, their ones would be the protected minority.

The counties in the north were abolished in 1973 as far as local government is concerned. Some organizations like the Post Office and the GAA continue to use them as geographical markers though, but they no longer exist as political entities.

Give up Orior
Wise advice.

Which maybe you should also take.

No maybe about it, actually.

Have you googled what the EU is Fr Dougal?
