This is directed at mainly nationalist and republican posters, of which I am a part of... we all know Ireland will be reunited if not in the imediate future but we know it will be even via the European Union it is technically already reunited.

I am not posting a flame thread to bait unionists, I just don't see them as relevant as they cling to the past of protestant majority of which is constantly shrinking.

So without any messing about - when is your guess when Ireland is reunited? and I fully expect unionist posters to post "never" or "100 years"... so please feel free to spam :)

The Catholic majority is shrinking in the Republic, while the Protestant minority is on the up.

You can't claim you want a united Ireland and simultaneously dismiss unionists as irrelevant.

Unionist wants the opposite of what I want, so why should I bow down to their politics? yes they are a force as they are the majority at the moment but that is constantly fading.. at my age I will live to the age where they won't be a force... I just want what is best for my island and its people.. not for the island next door which has a heritage of bullying and invading countless peoples.

Ireland will be reunited when peace reigns on the P.ie Northern Ireland forum.

Its nothing to do with bowing down. There's no point in claiming you have a united Ireland if all you've achierved is replacing one disaffected minority with another. A united Ireland will only be a united Ireland if the vast majority of people buy into it - and that'll mean a lot of changes that I doubt you've even considered.

But that minority is not a true minority when it comes to island wide wishes, you see them from an NI viewpoint.. if we had an all-island vote tomorrow then Ireland would be reunited.

We're not gonna have an all-Ireland vote though, so that's irrelevant. And as I said, there's no point in having a supposedly united Ireland that a million people don't buy into.

The 'nation' bought in voluntarily via the GFA so that for the first time ever we have partition accepted as fully legal by the people of Ireland and with the party that used to proclaim its republican credentials, now administering the British controlled part of Ireland as an underling for Westminster and an understudy to the DUP.
The Republic's claim to the six counties done away with, all Irish parties supporting British rule and British law in the 6 counties. The British establishment must be laughing into their beer as they watch the charade at Stormont while McGuinness and co splutter about being republican.
That's without even considering what we mean by a United Ireland in the first place although.
