    Default What counties of Northern Ireland could join the R.O.I. today?

    What counties have a significant enough Irish demos that they could join the republic based on the principles of self-determination today?

    Lets forget the economic stuff(ie the subsidy to NI & the current economic situation of the souths finances).

    Could we not redraw some county lines even?

    None. We decided as a nation voting on the same day that it was a united Ireland or status quo, to be decided by votes in both jurisdictions.

    To be fair he's asking for it, and has carefully constructed & placed his op to ensure that very outcome.
    I am in line for a smiting probably sooner than I expect. Apparently.

    Its a valid enough hypothetical question , i think.
    I would suggest the two north eastern most counties go to the UK, with a bit of border adjustment.
    Perhaps It could be put to the people in a list of other alternatives such as an independent NI.
    I love all the different cheeses.

    It probably is. In a better written format that stimulates debate, rather than in its current, lazy, barely interested version.

    And more importantly in an appropriate forum, instead of in Defence were it has been placed to deliberately annoy other users.

    Jeez, a thread about re-partitioning. Why hasn't that been done before?

    And put in the obvious forum - defence petunia

    Inside is right - zoo!
