Possible, desirable but steady as she goes. There's a way to do this and a load of ways not to.

We are having this debate in the CA forum. To a degree, affordability should not come into it, but those against it will always bring it up. Personally I think an all Ireland economy would flourish and per the discussion we are having in the CA forum there would be a 36 billion dividend to unity.

Plus a very disaffected British nationalist minority, some of whom have guns and bombs and are not reluctant to use them.

Fuck them up there, most of them in employment are working in Government jobs.

We cannot afford it and that is all about it.
Then we will have Unionist terrorists bombing down here.
The Republic of Ireland says NO.

The same minority who have for 40 years chanted the mantra that they are democrats and that political violence is unacceptable in all its forms? The same minority who treated the minority in the gerrymandered entity they live in like 2nd class citizens for much of the 20th century including allowing the pogroms of the late 60's and early 70's?

Point being, if and when unity happens, we will need to respect the culture, traditions, holidays, languages and passport entitlements of that minority. Because republicans do not want to do to unionists what unionists did to them. Because there is room in 2017 or 2020 or whenever it happens for both traditions on the island with parity and esteem for all. Flag changes, anthem changes, public holiday changes - it's all up for grabs when the negotiation on unity happens. That is why there is now an opportunity to build on Brexit and last week's elections by just starting the conversation. A white paper on unity in the 21st century wouldn't go astray but won't come from this government.

There is a new Ireland in the offing if intelligent and forward thinking people can steer the direction properly over the next few years and especially when the Scots go independent.
