BBC 'The View' - Nationalists to outnumber Unionists on the centenary of the gerrymandered artificial statelet, "Northern" Ireland..

BBC's 'The View' explained last night that after centuries of Ethnic Cleansing of Irish people by England in Ireland - culminating in the forced establishment of the gerrymandered artificial statelet "Northern" Ireland for their Unionists, Irish people will once again outnumber Unionists in the 6 counties of 9 county Ulster still under British occupation.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b09y1l61/the-view-19042018

So-called "Northern" Ireland was set up by England under its 'Government of Ireland Act 1920' - against the democratic will of the people of Ireland. Its only reason for existing was to have a permanent majority of Unionists in the rich industrial part of Ireland to service England's now defunct empire. Now on the centenary of its ignominious foundation, so-called "Northern Ireland will soon be ruled by Nationalists, and the reunification of Ireland is imminent

Here are some of the startling statistics for Unionists revealed on the show - Dr Paul Nolan, who specialises in monitoring the peace process and social trends, told BBC News that

Figures from the 2016 Labour Force Survey show that among those of working age 44% are now Nationalist and only 40% Unionist.

Figures from the Dept of Education show the difference is even more marked among schoolchildren with 51% Nationalist and only 37% Unionist.

BBC's 'The View' also reported that the only majority Unionists still hold is that among the over 60s, Unionists are winning that battle with Unionists being at 57%, compared to Nationalists on 35% - which begs the question, when is a win not a win?

Dr Nolan said "Three years from now we will end up, I think, in the ironic situation on the centenary of the state where we actually have a state that has a Catholic (Nationalist) majority."

Unionism is finished in Ireland.

Well the whole centenary stuff needs to be abandoned. That's looking for a row. Let it be celebrated in orange halls if they want.

True - what do Unionists in Ireland have to celebrate in reality - being ruled by Nationalists, and the reunification of Ireland being imminent?

When you think back to all those lost opportunities over the years for Unionists to reach out and show some decency and respect towards their Catholic neighbours. Never, never, never.

Catholic doesn't = A UI Supporter!

Also will there be an actually a self declared Catholic Majority or just more Catholics than Protestants with a substantial number of others especially atheists?

Even with the Irish language Act, they could have reached out. - Unionists in a lose-lose situation now - the damage is done.

Yes it does - so-called "Northern" Ireland will soon be ruled by Nationalists, making the reunification of our country and the ending of England's rule in Ireland imminent

A Catholic majority does not guarantee a majority vote for a UI. Some of them have the good sense to know that a UI would be an economic disaster.

No it does not!
There will always be more Catholics who support The Union than Protestants who support a UI and an ever growing number down South, once realization dawns that a UI is a possibility, who will vote against it happening!
I would say to Southies beware lest your dream/fantasy comes true!
There is a Paddy View that once the 4 green fields are back together that all our issues will be solved, the reality is they will be brought on to a more intense level, with a few new ones thrown in!

Yes it does and it will. If you think otherwise - you are in for a big surprise.

Whether you like it or not, Northern Ireland will soon be ruled by Nationalists and Sinn Fein in Government north and south of the partition line will be the vehicle that delivers reunification.

did ye forget who the wee statelet was manufactured in the first place aul han :? ... Karma's a b1tch aint it :lol:
Not only was Ireland partitioned but Ulster itself was too, so much for unionism's 'Ulster' identity. But that's unionism for you, they have no real loyalty to anyone, abandoned Monaghan, Cavan and Donegal without a thought, never looked to unite Ulster back once, and only loyal to Britain so long as the British are only loyal to them.

As for Ireland free from England's rule being an economic disaster - just this morning on the BBC Nolan Show, 27 minutes in, a Dail Eireann report on reunification was discussed that PROVES otherwise. Listen and learn.

Again - Northern Ireland will soon be ruled by Nationalists, making the reunification of Ireland and the ending of England's rule in our country imminent.

Unionism in Ireland is finished.
