Dara Murphy, of governing Irish party Fine Gael, called for a united Ireland if the public voted for it after the UK’s withdrawal from the Brussels bloc.

Mr Murphy, also vice-president of the European People’s Party, said he wanted “explicit clarity” from the Uk Government that this could happen.

But he denied wanting to activate the proess straight away and said the Irish government did not believe now was the right time.

Speaking on EPP TV, he said: “We have a peace process that has survived with the support and work of both governments, both communities, but also the support of the European Union.

Thankfully for Unionists the conservative party are excellent negotiators who have used their allotted time for negotiations wisely.

The North already has special status as it has automatic EU membership entry upon a vote to re-join the rest of the country and the EU.
No other part of Europe outside the EU nor any part of the UK has this unique status and facility.

Isn't that exactly what the GFA covers? The Unity of Ireland only if/when the people vote for it, after a vote was called due to it being clear there would be a majority voting for a UI?

" Snatch Northern Ireland " says The Express, London would be asking Dublin,

" What colour of bow do you want? we`ll box it up. "

A tricoloured ribbon would do.

The major difference is an "Irish" issue is now being converted to a European (EU) one.

A FGer sounding like a nationalist, that's him out of the party.

I started to laugh at this, then I remembered that Brexiters are so thick they could very easily nuke Ireland and then be surprised when their own country suffers fall out.

The beauty of it is the Right wing nutters of the DUP, Tory Party and UKIP put it there.
Tally Ho Ar La!

They'd still blame us Paddies for the fall out.

How can you have a "clear majority" before you have the vote?

Murphy was all over the shop according to that report but it is very telling that he does not see a vote in favour of a UI automatically leading to a UI. In other words he acknowledges that the UK Parliament has the final say. This is no news to me but it may give food for thought to those on this site who think that outbreeding the Unionists guarantees an automatic UI setup.

If Leo the Lip is still Taoiseach it will probably be a RAINbow.

If Éire took over Ulster, it would mean an extra 1bn per week for the En-Aitch-Ess.

Put it on a bus and they'll believe it.

Wrong. The Herren is right. getting the vote over the line is only the first step. Under the terms of the GFA the UK parliament is then obliged to make changes to the constitutional status of the North to pave the way for a UI. As we Irish should know better than most, if perfidious Albion decides for whatever reason to renege on its obligations you can whistle goodbye to a UI.

Of course we could always invade and occupy the North and then the shoe would be on the other foot. The Brits could whinge for a few hundred years about the injustice of it all. An interesting thought.
