BREAKING NEWS... senior level Unionists negotiating with the Irish Government about the reunification of Ireland.

Channel 4 News broke the news on Thursday that Unionists are negotiating with the Irish Government about the reunification of Ireland.

This follows an initiative by Dail Eireann last February to set up a reunification committee tasked with negotiating the end of England's rule in Ireland. A Dáil committee is talking to unionists to prepare for a possible united Ireland

England's decades old artificial partition of millennia old Ireland, and the recent Brexit vote have proven to be irreconcilable and has backfired on Unionism in Ireland.

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.

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. http://www.politics.ie/forum/northern-ireland/263398-bbc-view-nationalists-outnumber-unionists-centenary-gerrymandered-artificial-statelet-northern-ireland.html

The reality is of their situation is finally setting in for Unionists in Ireland.

Here are some of the startling statistics for Unionists revealed on the BBC show, 'The View' - 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 Northern Ireland state where we actually have a state that has a Catholic (Nationalist) majority."

Do you mean Catholic and Protestant? I doubt the Dept of Education would be categorising schoolchildren by political persuasion.

It also says that it can maintain a health service.
That is correct.

As the IMF economist, who was in charge of the reunification of Germany, told the Irish Government's 'Good Friday Agreement' committee on reunification - in fact he said NI would be better off reunified with the rest of Ireland rather then being trapped in the UK where it is one of the top 10 poorest regions in the EU.

Alex Kane (moderate unionist with the Belfast Newsletter) has tweeted that poll data will be released tomorrow, that would make May even less confident of winning a Border poll:

Will the artificial gerrymandered Statelet forced on Irish people even make it to the centenary of its ignominious frankenstein creation date???

Unionism in Ireland is finished - the fat lady is singing and she is near the end of her song!

Was there ever a concerted effort on the part of Catholics to outbreed the Protestants or did it just happen because of Catholic cultural values? Its almost like religion is a group evolutionary strategy. What's the birth rate of atheists btw?

Well, there was hardly a big meeting of all Catholics called to urge them to ride all round them.

Birth rate of atheists? That would be 100% - we are all born atheists.

Except the birth rate counts the children per mother and it is based on the mothers religion. Nice deflection but perhaps you could answer my question. Are atheists capable of perpetuating a society on their own or do they have to rely on conversion to sustain themselves?

Is it that atheists don't like children or is it that no one wants to ************************ them?
