Ahh, Brexit, is there anything it can’t do?
Or maybe they dont want to become Belfastistan?
51% to 49% for reunification sounds like Ireland would be right back at war with themselves again. I’m guessing the IRA/Sein Finn/whatever they call themselves now...still have quite a few weapons.
Yes, 51% is not the percentage to make a decision to leave a union - it should be closer to 2/3rds
Did you see the Brexit percentages?
We Taigs have finnaly outbred the orangemen
I don’t think it is as simple as that.
Many of the “Orangemen” no longer feel British. It’s like the Anglo-Norman (the many, many Irish Protestants like the first President of Ireland) who started off as non-Irish but ended up as more Irish than the Irish themselves.
British culture is failing and Westminster is leaving Northern Ireland, so more Northern Irish ‘unionist’ families feel more in tune with their Irish brothers in the republic.
poison pill: Did you see the Brexit percentages?
hmm... what were they?
It will happen.
Now that the Republic of Ireland is a totally secular country that will allow them to abort as many babies as they want, it will become their preference. That way they get to remain in their precious EU.
Is this poll credible or is it trying to shape public opinion?
This is a very credible poll. Lord Ashdowne’s polls are very well done - he was spot on talking about the results and reasons for the brexit referendum results
Nah, Ireland’s done extremely well as part of the EU - it sees that it’s voice is heard and its language too, unlike how it was under Westminster
They have the same abortion laws as the USA or the UK. In fact, more restrictive than the UK or parts of the USA
A return to a “Hard Border” will bring a return of the violence on both sides. This is well known. Unification within the EU is the best solution. Both the unionists and the nationalists have thrived without a border and peace has come to Ireland because of it and the Good Friday Agreement. Unification as a EU nation will benefit all.
BTW... both sides still have a few weapons. Don’t pin this on the RA.
Ireland’s government is gung-ho on importing non-Irish, the more diverse, the better.
“We now have a very sizable Muslim population in Ireland, estimated at around 65,000 and predicted to grow to over 100,000 in the next five years or so.”
About one third of Muslims here are immigrants and the rest are native Irish converts.
Ireland,today,*is* a tawdry little European cesspool.
You are a European Union apparatchik. That's been well established here on FR.I,personally,don't know why you bother to post here. You'd be far happier with the DUmpster Kids.
Very true..Most Unionists are of Scottish descent anyway,so their culture is more Celt than Anglo
