FARMERS in Northern Ireland are overwhelmingly in favour of Theresa May’s Brexit deal - and are rapidly losing patience with the Democratic Unionist Party’s reluctance to back it, Ulster Farmers’ Union President Ivor Ferguson has said.

Maybe Ivor and his pals will think again before they give the DUP a blank check in future.

Only 8 hundred thousand or so Unionists about the place these days, in a country of over 6 million.

Only 48 percent in the occupied 6 counties according to the 2011 census and falling sharply - the census in 2 years times is expected to have them in the low to mid 40 percent.

Time we Irish stopped pandering to their bullsh1t - Unionism in Ireland is FINISHED.
Unionists are indeed pandered to and by no one more than a small but vocal minority in the Irish media.

Reading eoghan harris and dudley Edwards weekly and I doubt there is anyone in Belfast who fawns over the ulster Scots more

They are viewed as just as Irish as any other Irishman, just some of them are a bit..eh...confused! :D
How are they Irish - when did they stop being British???

If they are Irish, why aren't they obeying the democratic will of the majority of the people of Ireland???

If they are Irish, why should they have an artificial veto on democracy in Ireland, backed up with an implicit threat of violence by a foreign country of occupation and its army???

Minoritarianism is the antithesis of democracy - unless and until the Unionists obey the democratic will of the Irish people, and assimilate into Irish society, they are still foreigners in Ireland - still occupying part of our country in another country's name - still holding Ireland back in the same way they always have, since they first stole Irish land from us Irish people.

The Good Friday Agreement drew a line under all that.

That is why the backstop is so important.

It defends the terms of the Good Friday Agreement.

In what way do you imagine the GFA drew a line under it? What excuses were you making for the Unionists before the GFA existed???

The majority of the people of Ireland want the reunification of our people, our country, and the end of England's ongoing occupation in Ireland - I've never seen a poll that stated otherwise.

Why is the question that the people of Ireland want asked, not allowed to be answered???

If there were real democracy in Ireland, England would have been shown the door a long time ago.

The Good Friday Agreement is for all intents and purposes just a rehash of the UK ‘Northern Ireland Constitution Act 1973' and the UK ‘Ireland Act 1949'.

So again, if they are Irish, why aren't they obeying the democratic will of the majority of the people of Ireland???

Both Harris and Edwards write well but they’ve become trapped in their rhetoric over the decades. These days, Harris often succumbs to Trumpian spasms of self-praise.

RDE is a reasonably good writer provided she's not discussing anything about Irish politics ( North or South)

Harris could easily be replaced with a well trained parrot, he has been writing the same exact collumn now since his Iraq war cheer leading pieces exposed him for the blustering fool he is

His weekly piece comprises one or all of the following three topics to some degree

1. Sinn Fein are the devil incarnate and behind everything from Arlene Foster burning dinner to Teresa may looking like a hapless idiot

2. Protestants are great, just terrific

3. Rte ignore my unique insights and the public suffer a terrible loss as a consequence

The Good Friday Agreement was approved by a large majority on the island of Ireland.

It is an international treaty signed by the UK and the Republic of Ireland and lodged with the UN.

Among the reasons Brexit is so offensive is that it tore up the GFA.

The reason the backstop is so important is that it maintains the GFA.
