For Northern Irish farmers, no-deal Brexit would be a calamity

At this point I think SF should go to London and try and take their seats without swear an oath to anyone. If the powers in Westminister do not allow them to sit then SF can at least say they tried.
If Sinn Fein were serious about preventing a hard border, it's completely within their power to prevent it by taking their seats at Westminster and voting with Labour. How they deal with the oath is up to them, but doing nothing to prevent a hard border is also a moral decision.

SF have made it clear that they would not be taking up seats before they got their votes.

If your longer time objective is the removal of the border why would you help the British out of their madness??

Are you seriously telling me they should shaft their mandate to please you and all the other AH's who did not come out to vote in favour of rejecting Brexit?

The DUP support a policy that could bring ruin to many of their voters and SF also support it by not being there.

One could almost say good given that most of them would never have survived without the subsidies, protected crayters that they are.

However, it will wipe everyone;s eye. So there we are.
