SDLP call for joint authority in absence of Stormont agreement?

Why? It's not as if any of the freestate parties will look after northern nationalists? If anything they will be more anxious  than ever to obey their British puppetmasters.😠😠

Ain't gonna happen. It's not in the terms of the Good Friday Agreement so I don't know why this keeps coming up.

Brexit requires a whole new agreement, if only to regulate things previously done at EU level. If there is not to be chaos then NI must remain in the single market, and some additional structures with the 26 counties would be needed for that.
if at first you don't succeed, then goto Plan B

Brexit will require a lot of creativity. It looks as though the Eurosceptics want a hard Exit. WTF.
And they do not care about OWC.

Tories will court DUP votes at Westminster,Irish Govt will look after its own interests by keeping the North at arms length (as it always does) and licking up to the British to protect its own economy as a result of Brexit. SF more interested in its own fortunes than the people,SDLP useless,whither now for Northern Nationalists?

At least the SDLP are trying. We're like the lost tribe of Israel, and the Dublin talk to us via their Minister for Foreign Affairs, ffs.

The only organisation that has looked after us and treated us as equals is the GAA.

Not if you are a club player, so a new organisation is needed to ensure that club players are given their rights and welfare.

It's not just people in the north that FF and FG don't care about - they hate us guys in the south too!

For what it's worth though, I think the rise of SF's electoral power in the south worries them and would mean they'd definitely be more interested in the north than in the past. Obviously it would be a self serving interest but an interest nonetheless.
