    (Edit: I can’t find any link Dodds is a creationist).
    Well then I could go with four provincial regional sub entities dedicated to specific local management thatr doesn;t impinge on the national decisions to mainitain national cohesion and fairness. Five in fact, one extra fro Dublin. Could be useful in fact. And the Ulster one of course would be finally a democratic ulster, not a fabricated sectarian power imposition.

    You are trying to tell us that the DUP would never hold the balance of power in a parliament comprising 158 members when they now hold the balance of power in a parliament comprising 635 members?

    There wouldn't be a DUP in a UI.

    Why are people incapable of understanding this? 🤔

    However the reality would be with FFFG Lab and whatever other mexicant mouse parties ye have throwing their sombreros into the ring, the CNR votail will be so diluted that nordie CNR will have more unionist representation than at present, and Arlene and willies lurve child. Ian Paisley Foster-Fraizier TD for Derry will be tánaiste...the futures bright...

    The key is satisfying the priorities of ordinary, decent people.
    Well No, I don't think the ROI MUST do anything on these issues BEFORE a UI vote.
    NI is presently in a political union with London, where homelessness is a much bigger issue than it is in Dublin.

    The reality is, the average middle class joe, not just in Ireland but across the world, doesn't actually care(more than on a superficial level) what happens to poor people. That is why so many middle class western people move to places like Dubai where they are not taxed and they live comfortably because the bottom rung of their economy is slave labour. We just get good health insurance and put €2 in the scam charity boxes in the supermarket and all is well.

    SF are playing the long game and playing it well.

    I see a recent poll showed support for SF is very strong with young people whilst support for FG isn't as strong. Support for FG is strong among +65's and weak for SF among these people

    As i said the long game. .
