    Default Unionists object to planned NIE takeover

    Unionist leaders in Northern Ireland have written to Taoiseach Brian Cowen to formally object to the ESB's planned takeover of Northern Ireland Electricity.
    RT News: Unionists object to planned NIE takeover

    Why is this? Why are senior unionist politicians including FM Peter Robinson objecting to inward foreign investment in NI?

    According to the article:

    They also said there would have been 'political outcry' had the Northern Ireland Executive or the UK government sought to acquire the Irish electricity grid.
    On what basis does he make such a ludicrous claim?

    Of course it does and what do you expect from them, they hate anything Irish, this has nothing to do with politics yet unionists canít stand the notion of a 26 county business bring in charge of anything in the north.

    I thought you were banned for making homophobic comments?

    This forum is a joke.

    "They described the plan as 'inappropriate' and said it amounted to the purchase of a 'key component' of Northern Ireland's national infrastructure".


    Just good old fashioned unionist bigotry.
