Bertie Ahern on a United Ireland.

 

Just noticed a post on the Irish News and another post by Maurice Quinilivan on facebook that Fianna Fail have ruled out a border poll or a referendum on Irish unity as policy. Fianna fail claim to be the “Republican party” but took the oath of allegiance in 1926, never delivered on Republican issues and is famous for its sleaze and rampant corruption. One must ask who they work for ? The people of Ireland or Boris Johnson and his Tory/British imperialist conservative party. They (the Tories) are surly delighted at the news from Fianna fail. The southern establishment has much to hide especially when giving out state contracts that cost 3/4 times the price or awarding contracts to companies with no experience and expertise to do the national broadband plan. A lot has to be hidden from a potential United Ireland.

To be honest I believe the time frame for a referendum on Irish unity would more likely be 10 years especially if Sinn fein can get into government or other United Ireland party can get in. I see the introduction of a “NHS” type healthcare system in the “South” as being necessary, along with some changes to the tax system so the people in the north don’t lose out. A few bob to spend would be very handy as well. However Boris Johnson and his tories are likely to put in “overtime” to keep any united Ireland party out. Southern politics is a “puppet show” at best.
