    Default Can Sinn Fein deliver a united Ireland?

    Would it not take them to be a majority in north and south to deliver a practical united Ireland and that seems pretty unlikely

    Dhera, it seemed pretty unlikely that Paisley would've went into gov with SF in the first place not so long ago.... who knows where unionism and northern politics might go in time to come.

    To answer your question: No

    The answer is no. Unionist will not be persuaded to nationalists under British rule, parnell redmond all failed on this issue. You think with Mi5 covertly and sinisterly controlling everything up there at the moment that this will change:although theres always Gerrys 'equality agenda'

    Demographics are slightly favourable towards catholics and they could have a slight majority by 2023.
    This however will not change much from this point going on recent birthrates and trends. nationalist are migrating more than unionists at the moment so this could cancel any numerical gains made by the ball bag.

    British governemnt poilcy in Ireloand is too stay in it. Its methods of staying there are quite clear, keep protestants unionists and get as many catholics to support the union as they can.

    Recent polls show northern catholics are only 60%in favour of unification, there policy is working well and they have people portraying themselves as republicans like PSF telling their own people that the state, its institutions are legitimate.

    They aint investing money in a Mi5 headquarters for the free state to move in and around 2016. Anybody that believes this nonsense is seriously deluded

    No .. SF can be a part of the debate.. but a lot more political and community organisations will also have to be engaged

    No one can 'deliver' a UI except the people.

    NO.

    A UI will come in spite of, and not because of, SF.

    So your planning on teaming up with great republican and nationalist parties like FF, SDLP and FG.......

    It doesnt matter how many parties you have to support your ideas, a broad front with most Ireland singing from the same hynmsheet will not create a UI.
