I'd warn as well that the Brexit referendum proves that the prospect of a unification referendum in the North is an extremely worrying one.

Such a poll should not be held unless and until opinion polls show a consistent, clear majority in favour of unification. A clear majority means minimum 55-45.

The threat to peace would be too great, and peace is much more important than a united Ireland.

A 51-49 majority in favour of unification would be a nightmarish prospect which would all but condemn the North to another outbreak of bloodshed.

I usually completely disagree with sid and find him a contrary c**t at the best of times, but he's not far wrong here.

(1) A UI should only happen with a supermajority.
(2) A UI should only happen after a meaningful (legal) framework is put in place to protect the culture and history of all as much as is practical (and without threatening others).
(3) A UI should only happen if any economic shock can be mitigated to manageable levels.
Catch yourself on
Itís 50% plus 1.
Why should nationalist votes be worth less than unionist votes

think it is important for the shinners to keep a referendum on a united ireland at the forefront.
it means the it becomes part of the psyche and an established reality that a referendum will take place eventually.
then we are into the revolving dates around when the next one will happen.
lets lose the first one then start preparation for the second one.
its simply an extension of the long war.

Hamilton has been a naughty boy behind the scenes and is in the doghouse. It may be that.
i heard he was a remainer and didnít think Brexit was a good idea
Thatís why he is sidelined on this

He has definitely been a naughty boy.
Spill the beans Harold 🤔

Starting to have a bit of positivity about Armagh again and i am definitely looking forward to division 2 football. It's good to see a few of the players return to the panel and with the two O'Neills also developing well it could be an interesting campaign.

In saying all that, it's a very tough league and i think everyone in Armagh would be happy to have remained in it at the end of the fixtures.
Genuinely
We seem to have the makings of a fantastic side if they bond together.
Hopefully Mc Corry and Mc geeney realise the  serious potential we have at present

If there is a Westminster GE can SF and SDLP please put aside their differences and not run against each other in South and North Belfast?

I think electoral pacts don't help.
Anyway, SF have their tails up from their last electoral success and they've spent years registering voters so unlikely to agree a pact.
Trailer not being divisive but their vote fell in the general elections and the dup moved to 10 seats,
The shinners need to assist Hermin in north down because she is a clear remainer ( if I recall she was originally a lecturer in European law in Queens in the late 80s)
South Belfast went to little, Robinson did long , north Belfast remained with Dodds,
If the 3 remainer  parties stepped out for 3 neutral candidates it would be seen as doing a great service to their community .

Really think the shinners alliance and sdlp need to put remain candidates in north Belfast, south Belfast, and close our Fermanagh as well.
Itís essential that the Dup 10 seats are reduced to send a signal.

A level economics. Explain how the DUP position on Brexit supports the NI economy .

Their argument regarding more trade with the rest of the UK is skewed according to Bertie. He says that more jobs are supported by cross border trade and that NI UK trade is skewed by a few large value transactions.
chairman of the cbi actually said the same when they did a survey, north south more important for volume rather than value.

The one point this whole Brexit thing has reinforced for me, is how even when they are in a minority unionism and the British State continues to diminish the Irish identity of 45% of NI. And worse still we let it.

Well, if the Shinners would bother their hole to go to Westminster and take the position of "we'll vote the opposite of whatever the DUP votes to (mostly) nullify their veto", then maybe things could inch forward.
Bullshit, why would they take their seats in a foreign parliament and swear allegiance to the Queen?

Why stand for election then?

It isn't about economics to the hardliners.

I think sf to be fair to then are better saying nothing. The dup are doing their job better than they ever could.
nail on the head
the shinners are better keeping quiet on this one
