Should nearly go in the WTF tread.

Indeed, once you came to the bit about the prosperity of NI ensuring its continuation.
However, it is true that SF have little real interest in unity. Progress requires a proper economic model, Paschal Donohue has done more to bring that about than SF who have policies for spending money but few for developing the economy to pay for this.

I have reached the conclusion that a UI is without doubt going to happen. It will not however be delivered by politicians, but happen organically. I also think that the Shared Island project will be instrumental in its delivery over the next 20 years. There is an acceptance in the broader unionist community that we are on that path although they won't voice it publicly. It needs to happen in a way that does not further alienate loyalist working classes who currently live in fear of the bogey men that is the nationalist community. Their fears need to be assuaged. 50+1 might be the law but continuously shouting about it only stokes loyalist fears.

SOuth Armagh people generally work in the South, this reduces NI productivity and increases 26 county productivity, so creating this gap.
