Northern Ireland will be impossible to finance for the republic of Ireland.
There's going to have to be a new solidarity tax put on the barstooolers.

Like the west Germans had to pay to re-unify east Germany.

A tax they're still paying - 24 years later.

Grim scenes ahead.


They might annexe Rockall to keep the empire at 3 territories

And the old adage of "Never interrupt your enemy when he's making a mistake" is probably being applied at the moment vis-à-vis DUP
List of the DUP’s achievements while propping up the Tory government:

Same sex marriage legalised


Abortion decriminalised


Border about to be introduced in the Irish Sea


Prospect of a United Ireland closer than ever

That just sums up how blinded by their own bitterness they really are,
Have they anybody among them who would step back and look at the bigger picture? In one way the introduction of abortion and same sex marriage may dilute the desire for a united ireland with some sections of the community seeing as it is available in both juristrictions now,

You've lost me here, yes they're still paying for unification but also helped them become one of the biggest economies in the world. Bigger tax bases makes a lot of things more practical that aren't with a smaller population, including the North would tip those scales on a lot of things. It will cost but it will also benefit, don't exclude the American community either, some rich Irish American families have set up investment funds to help a united Ireland.

I suppose they are happy to move with the times really. It's happened in the Republic so I guess backing it in N.I only makes sense. It goes with their equal/human rights logic.

They are arguing against the Brexit that they thought that they wanted and have trapped themselves in their own beliefs while the people disagree.
Whilst they tried in vain to stop the regulation of same sex marriage and abortion form going ahead by ruling from Westminster.

I can't wait for this. It will show them for what they really are.

Sorry Jimmy, I have had a rethink about your question.
You mean about the ruling form Westminster and bypassing Stormont?
I don't think it harms SF as much as it harms the DUP. The DUP are getting more of a kicking on this one. With all of their bolloxing it was passed over their heads. They are just the 'Disruptive Useless Party'.

Yes i have no issue with the legislation but im uncomfortable with SF recognising
British rule on this one , We have seen on many occasions MLMD, Martina Anderson, Michelle o neill, Elisha MCCALLION (WB) state that British government have no right to interfere in irish affairs,
