    Default Majority in Republic less Partitionis than in 19t87

    The new Ipsos Mri poll has much to suck on but it appears the greening of the south is happening. It is less partitionist than before. Interestingly there is much more support for an United Ireland in FF than SF, and indeed FG than SF.

    Some interesting views in this poll.

    The link to the Irish Times report is here.

    For unionism this is as good as it gets, for nationalism this is the worse it can be.

    Younger people are markedly more inclined to have no opinion on this issue
    Unity

    Again there has been a steep rise in the proportion with no opinion, which has doubled to 28 per cent since 1987. Among younger people aged between 18 and 34 the proportion with no opinion is higher again with 37 per cent having no view.
    Asked which of the assertions came closest to their views, 35 per cent said Northern Ireland would never be reunited with the South, 6 per cent said it would be reunited in 10 years, 16 per cent in 25 years, 15 per cent in 50 years, 8 per cent in 100 years and 20 per cent had no opinion.
    Probably not much different to feelings amongst people from a Catholic background in NI. In other words - yer fukked.

    If this is good news for them, I'd hate to see what bad news would look like

    Oh dear!

    Curiously, Sinn Féin voters were significantly stronger in the view that there would never be unity than supporters of other parties.

    Sinn Fein are lost at sea.
    Adams call for an internal 6 County referendum on partition is also an affront to Republicans.
    Partition affects both side of the border and the referendum on partition should be held on both sides.
    Robinson was right about turkeys voting for Christmas.
    Adams has led his party into a cul de sac on the Constitutional issue.

    Not a lot of future in Nationalism, it would appear.

    It won't be fixed unless you ask; that's the policy. Please ask them to fix it, it looks stupid.

    On principle, I don't partake in threads where even the feckin' title (!) is riddled with errors. It should be corrected.
