This has been a good election for Ireland. Border down the Irish sea. DUP sidelined. Nationalist majority in the north. Scotland on the verge. UK being dismantled.

We're nearly there lads.

Hmmm counting the Alliance voters of North Down as nationalists is a bit of a stretch don't you think?

Dodds low chin on the news would sink ships- time for the DUP to get their thumbs out and hitch a ride out of Westminster- the big Boris revenge is coming and it’s not Unionist pretty-

Border in the Irish Sea which will get the DUP bitching that much that Boris will throw the Border-poll at them which we will win-
Take a look at the figures.

Unionists and Alliance are a great or near 60% and plenty of Catholics will vote for then UK.

Dream on.

SF had their lowest vote since 2001.

You're fooling yourself.

What sort of deal do you expect Boris will get with the EU?

I expect he will get a deal that is fair to both side said re trade in pretty short order.

The EU have as much to gain a sense the the U.K. From such an arrangement.

The EU will have to give the UK a worse deal than being in the EU. The EU will take a very hard stance in relation to Northern Ireland.

Then the uk can walk away.

Something they couldn't do before.
It's certainly the case that the whole dynamic has changed, what we don't know is what Boris will look for. He has the majority to go for anything from close alignment to hard Brexit, and you're right, if he wants, he has the numbers to walk away. but he's got a big ego and will want to be leading the tories into the next general election, so anything that risks a significant economic downturn will be avoided.

The big losers are Unionists.

Just think about the direction of travel of Unionism in Ireland in the last 2 years.

Unionists lost their majority in Stormont.

Unionists lost their majority in the EU.

Unionists lost their majority in Westminster.

Get the picture???

That risk went with Corbyn and his communists.

I wasn't aware unionists had a majority in the EU or Westminster.

Wrong - Britain can walk away.

You seem to forget that the brits are going to sign the 'Withdrawal Agreement', which is a stand alone 'International Treaty'.

The new frontstop will never be replaced - whether the UK make a free trade deal with the EU or not.

You Unionists are our bitches now.

So- all will change at a border-poll or the one seven years after the first one- no one give Scotland a chance yet they just lost the first refrendrum and are demanding another go has the SNP breaks all in front of them- you might not fear the border-poll- but the more experienced DUP do-
