Do you think Unionists will go quietly into a United Ireland? They couldn't even accept the Union Fleg vote on City Hall.

If the fleg protest are anything to go by then it will all fizzle out pretty quickly

Initial rage



few months later no-one can be bothered

If Brexit goes through it may well be on WTO terms which will hammer UK GDP. The NI block grant will probably be cut.
Exporters in NI will not have cost free access to the Single Market. So their earnings will fall. The NHS will be in serious trouble. 
It's not going to be my little unionist pony .

If if if.The fact is the British and EU need each other hence after all the puffing and blowing what will emerge is a Brexit so soft that it will hardly be noticeable.

This reminds me of the DUP never sitting in government with SF or SF never sitting in Stormont.All huffing and puffing until reality kicks in

I'm not so sure about a soft Brexit. The EU need to discourage other country from exiting, but need to placate Britain too. It's a fine line.

This is all handbags The Brexit will be soft simply because both UK and EU are mutually dependent

Brexit is a fantasy. It will be a mess. The Irish government cares more about Unionists than anyone in Downing St.

Who needs the other the most?
I know one part of us would love to see the Brits totally fck up but we also know it's better for us if they remain reasonably successful and maintain a common trading area.

Aye but do the EU want France, Spain, Italy etc exiting too? If Britain get a cracking deal, others will be queuing up to leave (I think they are anyway).

I wish people would stop going on about this Tory and Labour shite. They both sing from the same hymn sheet. They're not there to do me or you any good.

No point talking to gobshites who are obsessed with the Left as if left wing politics will change everything for the better. They are usually failed university students who think they know better what to do with your wages I.e. Give it to welfare scroungers

Yeah because these welfare "scroungers" are the real problem. I see their propaganda has won you over anyway.
