We should all chip in a Euro to one these things and after a year we can buy the 6 counties from Theresa May.

Amazed by the number of Southern accents in Newry shops just now boosting the British Exchequer! Patriotic to the core! Then there are still people who think they would willingly subsidise taking the North on by ending partition!😂😂😂

By the sounds of it, ye're lucky to have them. Only ~6k new jobs in the north in the next 3 years seems ridiculously low

Lots of minimum wage retail stuff.

Laws are all very fine, but if the nature of an organisation is that you have to sue to be treated fairly do you really want to work there?

Obviously in border areas there's going to be considerable symmetry.

So where does the symmetry end? We can move the border there.

And a United Ireland is sustainable? How? Sure the 26 counties was bankrupt recently😂😂😂.It cannot even manage itself never mind taking on board the basket case economy of the six counties!

It borrowed money and paid it back. Did you ever borrow money? Did you pay it back? Were you bankrupt?

It's not baseless.Brexit is now,like most things here a Unionist v Nationalist fight,the unionists are in the majority.

Unionists are not in a majority, they got 45% of the vote in the Assembly election.
Please come back with a fact based point.

The undecideds are mostly middle of the road, as likely to go one way as the other.

Latest Lucid Talk poll (a rather long question!):

In the context of a "Hard Brexit" and NI leaving the EU with no deal on the border, GFA or citizens' rights: if the question used in in an NI Border Poll Referendum was:

Should NI REMAIN in the EU bu joining with the Republic of Ireland or LEAVE the EU by staying in the UK?

If the poll were tomorrow which way would you vote?

REMAIN in EU by joining with RoI:    47.9%
LEAVE the EU by staying in the UK:  45.4%
D/K but would vote:                             6.0%
Wouldn't vote:                                     0.7%

That's a first!
This might soften the DUPs cough and encourage not putting things to the test.

Rest in peace 5sams.

Let's hope there is an afterlife in which P. O'Sé is serving him pints and having the craic as Gaeilge.

So one guy fantasises about a United Ireland and it's going to happen? Maybe its because I'm from Portadown that it makes it easy for me to realise the depth of Unionist feeling and determination to resist a United Ireland,and know it's never going to happen.

They see themselves as more British than the British themselves.If Brexit makes the people of Britain starve,Unionists will be happy to starve with them to prove they are equally British.

Unionists are not in the majority, their proportion of the population drops by 0.3% per annum.

In or out, Ireland could still trade with EU countries. Plus they could make their own laws and trade deals, instead of being dictated to by Europe, a la the Apple deal.

Nope. If you trade with the EU, the EU sets the rules. If you're out, you have no say in the rules.

Quite, you might as well say that you would form a new GAA club outside the GAA and still play in the competitions that suited you, without the disciplinary procedures. Not going to work (except in New York perhaps).

There is a very interesting thread on Slugger to the effect that all of this will eventually drive the middle ground voters away from the union and towards  a UI.
This is written by an Alliance guy, who wasn't much bothered until recently but who is now thinking about things and his mates likewise.

A good quote
"If the centre ground continues to be squeezed, there’s only one other way this is going to go. It ends on a rainswept afternoon at Hillsborough Castle. With a slate-grey sky in the background, the diplomatic corps and representatives of the royal family and the Government are sitting behind an immaculately turned-out band playing Nimrod, then God Save the King, before lowering and folding the Flag for the last time. Sitting to the side, the invited Unionist politicians will be left watching in disbelief and wondering – as they did in the years following the signing of the Anglo Irish Agreement – if these few cheap concessions would really have been that hard to make. Where did it all go wrong?"
