Time for Joint Sovereignty

Today`s release of the census results illustrates the continued terminal decline of the unionist protestant population in northern Ireland compared to the growing catholic nationalist population from a just over 9% gap in 2001 to just a 3% gap in 2011.

Is it time for a new agreement, a time for Joint Authority/Sovereignty between the Republic and the UK for the 6 counties?

Some current facts

Belfast now has a majority Irish catholic population and Derry has an overwhelming majority, the 2 main cities in NI.
30 of the 32 counties of Ireland have an overwhelming nationalist majority population.
There is now a majority catholic population in the under 30 age group in Northern Ireland.

Its`s time for the Irish and British governments to start planning for the inevitable.
By the time of the next census in 2021, there will easily be an Irish Catholic majority in the North.
Is it time for a new agreement for Joint Authority as an interim measure until a border poll will be held in the next decade?

The outcome of such a border poll would most likely be a unitary state but there could also be options for a Federal Ireland or a Confederation to placate the unionist minority then.
However, with the current census results, is it time for Joint Authority/Sovereignty as an interim measure?

That was not contained in the GFA.

On the basis of this census data, the Catholic church and the vast majority of Protestant ones should organize on an all-Ireland basis.

It is all a bunch of hocus pocus fictional bullsh**t anyway. Most sensible people have already caught on to that organised religious racket.

So Cruimh, would you prefer a SF First Minister in a Republican run Northern Ireland than Joint Authority between London and Dublin?

If people actually want this then I'm sure SF/DUP/Alliance etc will all be deposed next election and a bunch of politicians pushing for joint sovreignty will be voted in...

That's not quite how empires work,

We're the serfs, not the Lords,

The entire island is now under occupation,

Just the methods are different, depending on what county you happen to be standing in?
