Fuel smuggling etc could be halted in the morning by changing the tax laws, only, FFG want to keep the perception out there that nationalists are involved...It suits the FFG partitionist agenda..

Not really, it suits us tractor owners to have fuel with a tax that stayed low. While road fuels taxes went up because of the mideast, road repairs, climate warming, take your pick.

Nothing to do with the border, as they have their own tax system up north.

If you're running a legit business then you would need genuine receipts from your supplier to claim the VAT back..
If you're not in business, you don't claim it back.

There is something not right about the Red/Green diesel set up. It would be more secure and sensible to work on a tax rebate system , similar to VAT, than the way it is being done.

If you are trying to poke fun at me by using those killed in Bundoran as a method then you are a really depraved person.
Shame on you but then i am not suprised in the least

The cowards in the 26 counties abandoned the nationalist people in the 6 and left them at the mercy of loyalist terrorists colluding with the brit state.

The OP makes sense from a logical point of view, therefore I'd say there is more than a grain of truth in it.
This would be a great electoral strategy for SF in NI.
It would probably be ignored in RoI, until such time as people realised that a border poll was imminent and was likely to change everything. At that point they would support the SF attempts to unify the country.

Up in NI, this strategy would play well with Belfast city unionists in a post brexit world. Their rural brethren would already be seduced by the EU subsidies still available to irish farmers, but denied to them. Not all unionists would be convinced, but there would be enough to tip the balance.

Following unification, SF would be the only party with a well established 32 county presence, and an established base of supporters throughout the entire island. They would also be in a good position to claim the credit for the re-unification. The old guard would take a back seat, and younger faces untainted by terrorism would be pushed forward as candidates.
In this new 32 county Ireland, SF would emerge as one of the strongest parties, if not the strongest.
Then they would have to go into government and walk the walk. Do adult things like Earn money in order to fulfil all their spending promises. They would run out of government faster then you could say " Language Act" :cool:

Sinn Fein will promote Belfast rather than Dublin as an alternative destination for foreign direct investment after the border poll is passed.

Sinn Fein will create a special Belfast Economic Develop Zone (‘CFEB’). Generous tax incentives will be made available to property development companies which are prepared to invest in high quality technologically advanced office blocks in the CFEB designed to attract companies operating in the technology and finance sectors. Additional financial incentives like those created to promote the Shannon Development Zone and the International Financial Services Center will be offered to companies willing to locate in the CFEB. The existing favourable tax treatment offered to multinationals in the South will of course be extended to the North.

The strategy is designed to persuade soft Unionists to vote in favour of a United Ireland by offering an opportunity for rapid economic development, an opportunity that will never be available under the Union. The counties of Antrim and Down will benefit most and that is where most Unionists live. The policy will also help take the pressure off Dublin and its dormitory counties which are becoming massively over crowded and unlivable.

There is no question but that Unionists will be better of in a United Ireland. The average price of a house in Dublin is €325,671. The average price of a house in Belfast is €139,317. QED.
They may gain in the North but lose in the South by doing that.

Maybe. I take the view that all taxation is a form of theft with variable benefits.

But then I don't live off the public teat, while NI and SF could not exist without it.
