RTE New has said that Sinn Féin leader Gerry Adams has called for a border poll on partition and Irish unity. I'm not a member of Sinn Féin, but this is a huge issue for this part of the Island, and I think the 'idea' of what a United Ireland would look like, is something that should be debated in public. I'd expected one of the pro-Sinn Féin posters to do a thread, and as none of them bothered, I decided to do it. Bare in mind I'm not a shinner, 'fore anyone starts throwing tantrums. I'd appretiate if anyone decides to comment that they concentrate on the 'theme', and refrain from abusive comments or trolling.. How will it affect your family? Your job? The team you follow? What would happen if we threw our euros in with their Sterling?
Sinn Féin leader Gerry Adams has called for a border poll on partition and Irish unity during the lifetime of the next Northern Ireland Assembly.
Launching his party's campaign on the issue, Mr Adams insisted a single economy would be good for prosperity jobs and investment
The Good Friday Agreement allows for a referendum within the North on unity - the so-called Border Poll.
Sinn Féin has now stepped up its campaign for the plebiscite.
Speaking at a special conference in Dublin Mr Adams told delegates that the Northern state had been gerrymandered to allow for a permanent Unionist majority.
However, he said the latest census figures showed only 40% of people there claimed an exclusively British identity.
