Tell me this and tell me no more.

You really don't have a clue what your talking about.

Explain to me how my part of the UK may soon be in the ROI?
Oh thats simple, so simple even the most Jaffa orange boyner should be able to grab it.

The EU wants a united Ireland, and by hook or by crook, its going to do everything in its power to help its client state, and thats what the RoI is since the EU made them vote again and again until it gave the right answer, achieve united hood.

You still haven't explained how we'll be ending up in the ROI. The EU's wishes are as relevant as Sinn Feins objectives.. mere pipe dreams.
 
Take of the orange tinted sunglasses. The futures green, they are outbreeding you at a prodigious rate.
Can you show me any evidence that a majority of the population of Northern Ireland would consider voting to unite Ireland under a Dublin government?

I await the answer with baited breath.

The evidence in here says that for a 400 women group from each community there would be a difference of one extra Catholic child over their lifetime. I'd hardly call that prodigious.
But he knows everything..It must be true.

48% of Northern Ireland is Protestant. 45% Catholic in the last census.

I'd bet the ground I walk upon that the majority of those 7% saying 'other' are from the so called Protestant community..me for an example.

Yet only 25% of those who are Catholic identify as Irish.

I'll be a British citizen in my homeland for along time yet.

I could make a joke about the Poles get everywhere, but I suspect the reality is that a lot of Catholics are quite happy with the NHS, an £11,000 no tax band on their earnings and one or two other little perks of being in the UK.

The data used in that survey is 10-20 years old (collected 199-2007). Sure since that time church attendance in the Republic has declined by around 5% a year. The Irish Catholic Church is in a mess; can’t recruit priests, reputation in tatters over child sex abuse. It ain’t going to recover; some studies expect church attendance to fall by as much as 70% over the next decade. The same must be happening in NI.

IMHO we are rapidly approaching a point where religion in NI will be nothing more than a label by which lapses and never engaged people identify.

In another generation religion will be largely irrelevant. It will all be about economics. Who provides the best opportunities for prosperity?

It's always been about economics for those who aren't Loyalist or Republican
