Re: The end is nigh

Not much support for a united Ireland down south. Too many people dont want a return to the old days of violence.
Add to that the cost - people are against change. Better the devil you know.

Re: The end is nigh

Nonsense Lawrence poll after poll in the 26 counties shows majority support

With Brexit that support is getting higher as it effects companies jobs and individuals in the 26 as much as the 6

And you got the bit about violence the wrong way round!!- the concerns everyone including FF FG are that re established division brought by a reinstated border will/could cause violence again

Add to that SF in the 26 are now neck and neck with FG there's a reasonable chance they will soon be part of a coalition govt

Times are changing-and fast

Re: The end is nigh

If there is to be another Scottish referendum who will pay for it, the whole of the UK?

Re: The end is nigh

I don't understand why English people would be surprised re Scotland

The English parties have virtually no support there, make up about 5% of the MPs etc

Why should Scotland be ruled by London based chinless wonders who are totally rejected by the Scottish people

It's a bit ironic Brexiteers as regards Brussels saying it's undemocrstic that people unelected in England should rule them but expect the Scots to accept a similar scenario

Actually I don't think anyone expects the Scottish to just accept it, I personally think it's a complete waste of time and money to hold a second referendum. But likewise, it's funny how people support the idea of Scotland deciding whether or not to be independent, but have no respect for people who voted to leave the EU.


However I fully support another referendum, if that is what the majority have called for....and not just a re-run for the political ambitions of one person.

Re: The end is nigh

Just like here Charlotte these things are never and will never be settled by one vote.

It's a tactic of political,attrition.

If Independnce loses by say 7 % this time, rally and come back yet again, and again etc chipping away at the percentage

It's simple effective political attrition -a tactic mastered by various entities in this neck of the woods

Crucially the very fact that referendums continue to be held assist in themselves to destabilise the status quo, as Nats who lose do not become unionists just because on one particular vote they did not win

Re: The end is nigh

Charlotte I think the 48% have been insulted quite enough too. The "we won, you lost, suck it up, losers" attitude doesn't show much respect to the 16 million UK residents who voted for the status quo and approx. 1 million Britons abroad who didn't even have the chance to voice their opinion. Talking about "the will of the people" as if those who voted differently are not the people too, is totally lacking in respect.

İn the same way, talking about the uneducated fascist old fogeys who voted for Brexit is pretty lacking in respect too.

Talking of which, when is Kibris due back?
