A hard Brexit means an economic Dunkirk for the North and this time there will be no America to bail you out. A hard Brexit means passport controls at the border. A hard Brexit means alienation of the Nationalist Irish who will be soon be a majority in NI. A hard Brexit means a United Ireland with no concessions to Unionism.



Safeguard your future. Vote Ulster Unionist Party and ditch the DUP.

The Ulster Unionist Party are worse in many ways than the DUP.
The only way forward for Unionism is an accommodation with Nationalism and that means ditching the ultra British Nationalist DUP who, lets remember, opposed the GFA.

Do Unionists really want to see passport controls on the border, destruction of agriculture in NI and the flight of foreign direct investment which has already started?

A vote for the DUP is a vote for disaster.

London will probably continue to subsidise NI to the same extent as it is doing now. That means no replacement state aid for the loss of EU grants and further economic and social stagnation.

This is the future if you vote DUP: https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2016/jun/27/liverpool-london-brexit-leave-eu-referendum

Hard to see that from a 26 county perspective. The UUP have always offered a less sectarian and confrontational option to the DUP.

With a change from terrorist led SF to a non-terrorist led SF in the North, there will hopefully develop a less baggage laden party with more progressive policies. Unionism has always been reactionary to the politics of republicans so if SF softens, then the DUP will lose support while the UUP will gain.

It is "northern Ireland" that has failed! The fact that unionists are doing the destroying is the comical part. The fact Arline could not go to both Ireland team matches with Martin during Euro 2016 sort of explains to the Unionist mindset to the voters of Dublin.

Personally, I sincerely hope that many within the DUP faithful have the good sense to turn their backs on Foster, and deliver an unequivocal rejection of her incompetence at the ballot box.

A transference of first preference votes to the UUP may seem like an abandonment of the dinosaurs and an embracement of moderacy on the surface, but it should be remembered that both the DUP and UUP have sustained an ambiguous and ambivalent relationship with the more extreme elements of Ulster unionism/loyalism.

The DUP had an "accommodation" with republicanism, and via incompetence, arrogance and tenacity squandered what had taken many years to build and solidify. Now we have the DUP electioneering on a regressive tribalist platform in order to appeal to the sizeable docile element of grass roots unionism, who by waving a flag and hollering tawdry and anachronistic anti-republican slogans can rally the plebs to safely reinstall Foster as incompetent-in-chief, as not to do so threatens the union...

Unionism was coerced into the GFA, coerced into acknowledging and accommodating the nationalist aspiration, and coerced into power-sharing with SF. Republicanism/Nationalism has the upper hand, and in light of the botched RHI, the moral high ground going into this totally unnecessary, avoidable and unwanted election.

Brexit can only weaken the union and consolidate nationalism, as both sections of this island are pro-eu and loathe to accept a re-intro of a hard border and passport controls, as it would have a detrimental impact upon commerce, tourism and inward investment.

The UUP now have an opportunity to reassert themselves and reattain their former position as the dominant unionist party, but that does not automatically equate to moderacy, just an appearance of moderacy. They are unionists, like the DUP, their raison d'etre is to sustain partition under the transparent guise of democracy under the terms and conditions of the GFA, and via that artifice, prevent Irish nationalism from fulfilling its objective.

Via a SF dealt red-card on DUP arrogance and recalcitrance consequently bringing the house down, the game has now moved into extra time, and every unionist knows that a united Ireland is not a matter of if, but when i.e. a matter of time. A vote for the DUP is a vote for more of the same. If people really want change they must change the political landscape via a change of allegiances, and SF may receive a significant number of sympathy votes this forthcoming election.

petunia

You do vote for exactly that, Bridgey. Your denial of it is pathetic. You know there's a list as long as your arm of DUP men and associates who're up to their necks in murder. That includes Paisley and the UPV and Robinson with Ulster Resistance. That includes all the times the Order and Unionists parties enlisted the help of the boys with the furry faces. To bring down power sharing. To try to murder police and army at Drumcree.

You parade with these same murderers, and have cozy cups of tae with them. Your brethren commemorate them as martyrs. The moral high-ground you're desperate to claim for yourself doesn't exist. You're the other cheek on the same arse.
