    Could there be a split in the future between SF in Northern Ireland and SF in Eire?

    This is a serious question; SF in Ulster are an extreme ethnic nationalist party that glorify a terrorist campaign they fought knowing that if they got what they wanted it would have resulted in full scale civil war.

    SF during the Troubles were tiny in Eire but they are arisen as far as I can see because a gap created by the Labour Party down there not being strong enough on economic issues that effect working class people.

    How long can this strange coalition keep going, particularly if open conflict returns to Ulster will there be an eventual split?

    No JamesMason, SF won't split no matter how much you fantasise over it.

    BTW, why didn't you call NI Tuaisceart Éireann if we're using Irish names?

    Blah, blah, Ren; act the clown there all you want but you yourself have abused factual for her lack of hatred of and even concern for the British people of Ulster.

    If the conflict becomes serious again you will be cheering on the "the boys", will factual? I doubt it somehow.

    Factual is special, you really don't understand the shinners at all, they are going to use the political process to get what they want. If it doesn't work out they'll be just another political party after 20 or 30 years. If it does work out for them, they'll have the Brits to do their dirty work for them if things get too uppity in the transition to an United Ireland.

    If someone tried to split Sinn Fein they would probably be hung, drawn and quartered.
