McGuiness calls for an end to constitutional link between UK and NI

#2
At the end of the day, it will be for the electorate to decide.

You won't find any argument here. Spent nearly 4 years in that shit hole. It is a wet, depressing place full of complete ********* (one both sides) - set them free and see just how much we notice them when they are gone.

They'll ask alright, annually, until they get the answer they want. I'd say circa twenty years.

I don't think that the Republic either want or could afford to take on the populace of Northern Ireland.
They don't & they can't. But they're kinda constitutionally obligated.

You just hit the nail on the head I feel. Try this...

"Martin McGuinness stands at Free Derry Corner stark naked on one leg doing the propeller thing with his willie".

That would get a headline around the world I am sure. Which has been sadly lacking in the McGuinness scrap book since the glory days of being 'denied the oxygen of publicity' and being the pin-up boy of slack witted students and people who believe the moon landings are fake. He is now in the Dail, an assembly of Welsh charcoal burners I believe? Not exactly front and centre with the worlds media?

McGuinness and his chums are becoming a side-show as the world moves on. And that must hurt. So let us give them space to grow old, whither and die in peace. By ignoring their bollocks statements?

But what about the Titanic Museum we have all just paid for?

As to the South, they do not want them either, I think that they (NI) would be a good region to test the Scottish Independence thing on, let them go, see how they get on and then ask the Scots how they would like to proceed.

Articles 2 and 3 of the Irish Constitution, the territorial claim over the six counties, were amended by referendum in 1998 as part of the Good Friday Agreement. The Republic no longer has any constitutional designs on the north, aspirational maybe.
International agreement then. Look, I'm a Unionist but people in NI really need to start getting their heads around the fact that we are on a route to a united Ireland and it ain't gonna be under the Crown.

As much as you need to ask if Ireland wants us, you need to ask if the rest of Britain want rid.

Twenty years, give or take a few, possibly with some sort of uber devolution in the middle, plan your life accordingly. I am.

That's a trick question, right? Heh. Nice try. But me Mam didn't raise any stupid bairns.
