The irony of this is only massive.

The Provisional Cult spent the best part of three decades trying to destroy Belfast, economically, and often physically.

It escapes their minds that the did more damage to Belfast, and the six counties than any amount of posturing can repair.
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.
Stick your indignation where the sun doesn't shine.

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.
After a border poll MIGHT BE passed, Sinn Fein will be an irrelevant party in the six, just as they are in the 26. What do you think an all island Ireland would mean exactly?

They will still have the fuel business to rely upon.

Based on current polling figures, a party with a solid 25% National vote. By contrast, ff and FG, due to lack of a northern presence will see their National vote size drop. Think about it.

And when the people realise the pig in a poke they will be sold, watch that support evaporate.

Would you invest in a City or a region, where the inhabitants refuse to live by the rule of law and democracy, frequently rioting, damaging public and private property, where the threat of civil war if ever just under the surface, and where huge swades of the population are effectively near communist in their aspirations?
You really didn't have to prove ,just how I'll informed you are. But thanks for that though.

Based on actual results, about 17 or 18%.

And no one knows who would vote for whom in a UI.

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.

Didn't seem to happen this side of the border despite 100 years of industrial quantities of pigs in pokes.

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..

Seriously, are you saying the 'perception ' that the RA is smuggling fuel is the fault of the southern partys?

As a resident of West Dublin I don't mind if Belfast is given priority in a United Ireland.

Run along there, troll..:D
Wouldn't you be better off teaching your young people how to drive rather than trolling a political website, dear?
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

For decades Northern Ireland has devoured much more resources than it's people have produced. Much of the problem lies in the hunger of its people for handouts and living out of the pockets of the Mainland British people.
I have never before heard that the people of northern Ireland lived off the people of Gibraltar. Do explain.

I'm no fan of the RCC, but anyone else think the constant mobile phone/camera usage is disrespectful ?
Was on Charles Bridge in Prague last year.
I found myself the only person not taking a selfie.
Everyone is trying to capture the moment instead of living it.
