The Good Friday Agreement Was A Defeat For Unionism And A Victory For The IRA. West Brits And Unionists Need To Accept This And Move On.

The Good Friday Agreement was a defeat for Unionism and a victory for the IRA. It was a triumph of physical force Republicanism over constitutional Nationalism and a vindication of the ballot box and Armalite strategy pursued by Sinn Fein. The Agreement was a long list of concessions to Nationalists which granted everything on the Sinn Fein agenda including the abolition of majority rule in NI. In return the Unionists were offered a fig leaf to save their embarrassment which was formal recognition of a de facto border which no Irish Government has ever considered removing dispute numerous opportunities. Unionists were left to console themselves with the lifting of an imaginary siege that never was.

The GFA was also a defeat for FFG who, like their Tory cousins in Britain had resolutely opposed any negotiation with Sinn Fein and the IRA thus ensuring that the war continued until the Brits finally blinked and agreed to talk. FFG got it wrong for 30 years and so did the SDLP. Now they are terrified of SF. FFG would probably offer Donegal, Cavan and Monaghan to the Brits in order to keep SF at bay.

Unionists need to accept that the GFA was a defeat for Unionism. Unionists will soon be a minority. They must come to an accommodation with Nationalists or they will find the road to a United Ireland very rocky indeed.

The Brexit crisis is a salutary reminder that power does not come without leverage. One only has to look at the way the Irish Government has been ignored by the British side. It seems that a pound of semtex is worth a 1000 Leo Varadkars and his pink socks.

As the leader of the Irish Labour Party, I'm sick of being ignored while Brexit threatens to destroy Ireland completely.

Seamus Mallon finally gets it.

Sinn Fein wrote the script.

Mr Mallon also said that while the other parties were negotiating for two years prior to the 1998 Good Friday Agreement, Sinn Féin had already done their negotiations with the Irish, British and American governments. "They had their understandings on the release of prisoners, on the factors that they wanted. In other words they had almost written the script," he said. "Stitch-up is a word that can be used in a very loose way".

FFG covered up the brit collusion in the Dublin/Monaghan bombings.
Enough said.

Majority rule abolished until Nationalists become a majority and then NI is subsumed into the Republic. The orange has become a sickly grey.
Lol if the mythological utopian UI ever happens nordie nationalist will be assimilated by the mexicant Borg. The votail splitting between the FFFGSFLSD will mean that their more likely than ever to have Unionist representation, our revenge will be the laughter of our children...

In no way was it a defeat for the UK State. You might even call it a victory for them.

However it was a crushing and humiliating defeat for the Orange Order.

No they didn't because the "collusion" (surely the most over-used and abused word in Ireland?) you allege never happened. It's a fantasy, a myth and a baseless lie.

The Brits are out. SF are setting the agenda in NI. Unionists are swimming against the current and heaing towards the falls because they cannot opt for total integration into the UK which was the fallback plan in the event of Nationalist majority.

Do you intend to emigrate when NI is subsumed into the Republic.

The Brits were forced to negotiate. Something they said they would never do. That was an out and out defeat.
