Well it's no big secret that JC supports a UI, but isn't it SOME DILEMMA for unionism especially the DUP, that if they pull support on May and the Tory's it could well result in JC's Labour along with the SNP to form the next UK govt and with it a border poll that the unionists dread despite claiming there is no need for it blah, blah, blah while Theresa May is "not confident" unionists would win it.

So unionists is there ever any good news for you at all these days ?

Perhaps someone should show him the poll that showed support running at 21% this week.

Still 21% for Corbyn is a victory.

From the OP Link - I was surprised that Irish Nationalists didn't object to the acknowledgment that there are two Irish Nations .... validating Partition

Jeremy Corbyn believes that there is majority support for unification across both Irish nations, his official spokesman has said ahead of his first visit to Northern Ireland as Labour leader.

There are two Irish entities but one Irish nation, and another colonial-settler group which cannot decide if its British, Northern Irish, Ulster or a mix of all of the above.

One nation partitioned. Not only was Ireland partitioned but Ulster too with Monaghan, Cavan and Donegal in the Free State, some great victory for unionism and 'Ulster' all right.

Partition was validated by the the ROI in referendum of 98.

:roll: For the umpteenth time :roll: ...... The voting patterns in elections are the indicators of how people would vote in a border poll, not private opinion polls which come up with varying results depending how they are structured. If the unionists and Tory's actually believed in these private polls they'd want a border poll tomorrow to embarass SF and Irish nationalism and put the issue aside for a few decades. The fact that they are afraid to hold one says it all. Simples.

You could say so, I voted against the GFA though, totally against the dropping of articles 2 and 3, it will never be legtimate in eyes. It's done now, we have to work within the GFA and clealry demographics are on nationalism side.

Opinion polls obviously have a margin of error, however, such error tends to be of the order of less than 5%. If there was significant support (say in excess of 40%) for a UI then at least some of the polls would support this but they don't. There is no benefit to unionism in supporting a call for a border poll and the fact that SF claim to want one is probably a reason why unionist politicians are opposed.
I think you're clutching at straws and at the same time perplexed as to why a significant proportion of catholics have consistently stated that they would prefer to remain in the UK. SF hyped up the increase in support for a UI, some other political parties and commentators bought into the hype and all are now looking quite foolish.

Will you be ok on the rowing boat when Jeremy eases Northern Ireland out of the Union .

You have to admire how quickly Jeremy will sort the Irish border Eu problems . A few days in Northern Ireland and he gets it and solves it .

Its time to let Jeremy rule Britain minus northern Ireland of course .

Touché.

Corbyn is a nutter who is wasting a glorious opportunity for that Party. Hopefully he’s leader of Labour for a good while yet.
