    1. BREXIT & 2. “Leadership” (ie white English nationalist populism)
    Last year the north voted against BREXIT and won’t have an input into English nationalism. The main interest is whether parties will enter pacts. Will DUP & UUP cosy up in the absence of Mike and the intellectual absence of Arlene and cobble together a shabby deal to avoid splitting the unionist vote, ie keep Naomi Long out? Will the SDLP agree a pact with anyone to oppose BREXIT ?
    Can Sinn Fein regain their green field in Fermanagh South Tryrone?

    There are 18 constituencies;
    Co Antrim; Belfast North, Belfast West, South Antrim, North Antrim, East Antrim
    Co Down; North Down, South Down, Strangford, Belfast East, Belfast South,
    Co Tyrone; Mid Ulster, West Tyrone,
    Co Armagh, Newry & Armagh, Upper Bann, Lagan Valley,
    Co Derry; Foyle, East Londonderry
    Co Fermangh; Fermanagh/South Tryone

    Each constituency has its individual issues and personalities (ie bigots) which will come to the forefront during the campaign.
    The idea of the thread is to allow a space for the debate of northern issues during the campaign and the outcome.
    Is it a given that Sylvia Hermon will be returned? Can anyone remember the name of the SF MP for West Belfast? How long will it take for Sammy Wilson to put his foot (or any other part of his anatomy) in it?
    In the meantime it’s the old register where trees are cut down!

    I sincerely hope, and expect, that the 2107 Westminster election will have no Irish constituencies whatsoever and there will no longer even be a 'Northern Ireland' forum on this site (if of course the internet in it's current form still exists).

    The utter and total lack of interest in the NI GE in the British media is astonishing - although that is one of the major fault lines in any BREXIT negotation. The EU has said they will not even begin talks about a future trade deal until WM has a position on the Border.

    Scotlands IndyREf and Wales possible fall to the Tories is endlessly chewed over. NI - not chirp. Yet its key to BREXIT, which we are being told is what this election is all about.

    A couple of engaged British political newspaper websites from both sides of the debate raised this.

    Their posters comments - I sh*t you not - "We dont want NI anyway - give it back to the Republic, job done."

    It should be treated as a border Poll.....There is no other point to elections in the North....

    Keep voting until there is a nationalist / republican majority.........

    It should be inevitable......I hope so anyway.....

    The BBC HYS comments from the rabid Brexit crowd are priceless, Gibraltar is British as fook, hands of Dago! We showed those argies etc etc, thoughst on NI range from mehhhh to "sick of those Irish, let Dublin take care of it".
    A few well placed Metro ads detailing the cost of NI would help move things along, particularly once the reality of Brexit hits them.

    We know BREXIT is England vs the rest (and a very confused and unhappy Wales doing something or other) but the fact is - while the SNP remain the bogey man (coalition of chaos - no to Scots calling any shots) - NI is firmly in a "Who gives a fook?" territory.

    I repeat - this is one of the EUs red lines. The Border.

    The total refusal to discuss this or even think about NI, the indifference of public, politicians and media, tells you everything you need to know.
