City states and smaller regional assemblies should be viable under the EU umbrella. In practice (eg Catalonia) the EU will not support them, but that is a political matter.Ideally NI would join the EU as a seperate nation. As we move inevitably towards a federal europe nation states are becoming increasinly irrelevant.
Errrr there's a Senate Committee on this that have been churning out reports into various technical and administrative aspects of unification for the last few years, including commissioning reports from German economists etc.I'm amazed the body politic (and civil society) hasn't been discussing this exact stuff.
It is long past time to have started.
None of which have proven to be Dublin's strong point over the last 50 or so years=SideysGhost;12597344

Ah another Newbie spouting nonsense. So let me guess.....MAGAhead or Brexiteer?I really don't want a United Ireland.
I really hope that Britain continues to pay for Northern Ireland.
If there is a United Ireland, taxes will increase in the Republic in order to pay for Northern Ireland.
If you think any of Ireland's econmoic (or social) advancements are due in any meaningful way to government costings, proposals, and plans, then I've a bridge in Brooklyn you may be interested in buying.Ya mean the last 50 years of massive economic and social progress? Those 50 years?
Fecking muppet :roflmao:
Why would I want a bridge in Brooklyn? Are you another of the demented MAGA crowd that have been infesting the place recently?If you think any of Ireland's econmoic (or social) advancements are due in any meaningful way to government costings, proposals, and plans, then I've a bridge in Brooklyn you may be interested in buying.
You should give Fr. Dougal a shout, you know de lad over on Craggy Island - they say he's an authority on de ould 2 nations thingy.There are TWO nations in Northern Ireland. Sorry for mentioning this very inconvenient fact.
