And people in both of the states on the island suffered as a consequence appreciation very very directly may people were denied what we would regard as the most basic of rights and in both of the states and it's taken us almost jus- entry to kind of extricate ourselves from that kind of toxic at politics and to see actually a horizon for achieving the kind.

Just. Before we finish running out of time I, do have a question about the immediate future. Leadership question a question about policy management is how prepared you are for the the increase scrutiny that shouldn't find will now come under as the actual party of opposition. As again I'm showing you know last week one of your abstentionist Westminster MP's Malloy said that the arteries people were sold a pup with the Good Friday accords and it was all just a bluff and on election night of course, there were a couple of you and utd's perhaps somewhat carried away and started singing songs and waving flags that made people a little bit nervous. How hard are you going to have to crack the whip? Do you think? When as hard as I have to? Crack in any whips to be honest with you end this question on election night would have been absolutely grand in done in the public is afterwards on evidence things but. It will. It wasn't the the things for the Santer 'em look I'm at this hour wire. could buy and I have never been anything other than seventy thoroughly with nights on I imagine that's not going to change, and that's part of this whole process while.

It is than once you step forward into the lice of a public representation ashes for the poor. So now I'm not anxious about that at all I know myself up because the party has grown so dramatically. So quickly, you know that obviously our management system within the party has to be acid, the top notch and we've had. been at work to do on that, it's not easy. It's. News to transition from a small to medium sized to large variety. But it's like any other organization you have to make sure that you're not show with. So not always be working his script be not obsolete that we should be scrutinized I inquiry everybody to to scrutinize Xinfang from top to bottom so. Mary Lou McDonald Thanks for joining us.

I'M REBECCA A collared in Beirut people in Ireland are looking at a very different political future today something of a revolution in the ballot box. That's it's a quote from the leader of Ireland's left-wing Shin Fain Party Mary Lou McDonald describing this weekend's historic election of change zipping statements it system statements retirement Shin Fain beat Ireland's traditional ruling parties but just barely early. No party captured an outright majority. So now because it's a parliamentary system. The real fun begins time to build a ruling coalition regardless of what happens next ex-shin feigned success has taken many by surprise including former Irish. Prime Minister Bertie Ahern. I think we saw their poll rising M.. Alter last year both not to disobey extent they did very poorly in the local elections last summer and from the acid day a quickly how to review of their own strategies and policies at the say that was a successful review is an understatement because what they decided to do was was to focus on the homelessness housing and health and a went after those three issues so that resonated strongly with the with the electric actress and wellness that the government had not been seen to to be dating dot. Well which so. I think that's why they got their strength. was they had a narrow focus. I went after those issues has some very good candidates good performance on television and Mary. Lou McDonald who is a relatively new leader option. Fans at talent haven't taken over Gerry Adams only two years ago as she performed very well in the election campaign so listeners may be scratching their heads as we're talking about champagne and the republic the violent Because when you were prime minister you sign the Good Friday Agreement along with Tony Blair bringing peace to the north which is really where Shin Fain has their route? So how different is this Shit Saint Party you knew. Then from the part of the top these polls in the Republic of Ireland saying to to to be fair with over the last you know twenty years have have been moving towards mainstream as some of the policies might be considered a radical but they have been trying to move to more mainstream politics Komo other parties. So your party Fianna Fall had previously said they'd never go into coalition with Shit Fain. Is it time to change that view. I think there'd be a lot of discussion. The seats are still coming in. That won't be finished until tomorrow and are late tonight so I think there's there's going to be a lot of analysis now about who do wash at the moment fina gala said there will not Faint Fina fall of said they will not. Do you wish insane. Maybe not a strong feta. Gaylon Fall said they won't date with these other so I know in this political kind of a game somebody was going to have to change their position. Addition so I think there'll be a lot of soul searching and a lot of probably tar might around for the next few weeks and then dostal settled and people will have to see what kind of a combination of government they can put together so it means a people have to change from the positions. They've had so I think it'll be it'll be an interesting. Thank you weeks but I I do honestly believe it'll take a few weeks before you get care water. So what path do these results indicate what will be different in Ireland deficient fan. Dan Can consolidate its power. I wouldn't put too much money down on a bat dot says D- What happened on Saturday will happen again in a year's time or two years time but this time came at a large proportion you'll people listened to what the campaign us about change at about more radical politics and Unday bought into it now that bought into it in fairness to them for good reasons A lot of people can't afford housing a lot of you. Don't people are staying at home with their children fathers Older than they normally traditionally patiently ward. So in this case they champagne policy attractiveness allowed to support and people said okay. Let's give them a try. So I think from electrodes point of view if it was understandable at the level of the spread of it was was remarkable. Finally do you think this will lead to a referendum on a united Ireland now and should there be one my own view on that is it will happen eventually both Nas too quick and certainly not in in the next few years for this reason this reason maybe only that the proprietary work of how All that job is he's going to take some years and it hasn't been done so to prematurely tried to press for a border poll as it's called our United Ireland or New Orleans. It's not at the time to do that and to do it. In the short term would prove to be a big mistake in view former Irish Prime Minister Bertie Ahern speaking with us about Xinfang topping the polls in the Irish elections. Thank you for your time. GotTa tell it. Hope that's called and disembark remind yourself nice to talk to you and here's an update on another weekend. Vote we previewed for you. Switzerland has voted to ban discrimination based on sexual orientation a big win for the country's LGBT community. They've argued that Switzerland has lagged far behind behind other European countries on gay rights. No longer though. Sixty three percent of Swiss voters back the antidiscrimination measure. That's more support than polls had suggested Rosenwasser is with the Swiss Lesbian Organization. The holes were rather positive but it was still relieved to see that they were right about the very clear. Yes of Switzerland's population it's one of many steps to take on but they're certainly more steps that we do have to take jake one of them being marriage equality which Switzerland still does not have and we're taking all the motivation. Today's vote to fight for that marriage not quality which the parliament will talk about shortly. Switzerland's parliament is expected to vote on whether to legalize same sex marriage spring as for the ban on anti-gay discrimination. The Swiss parliament had actually passed measure in two thousand eighteen but opponents had gathered enough signatures to force last weekend's referendum they argue the antidiscrimination nation law could have an impact on freedom of speech and defended some church leaders who don't want to bless same-sex partnerships David truck soul is with the young Swiss People's Party and an organizer for the no campaign y'all dealing also taught s shine ball game.

"Politics podcast. I'm joined by James of Saif and Dennis student from the Irish Times the London editor however today. He's joining us from Kook Doc. Following the Irish election results still coming in a few things have become clear. The RADKA FUTON election hoping it'd be one on Brexit and on the economy but it wasn't to be as counting gets into its final stages. It's clear that this is a historic result. Fishing Fain Ole. Oh I preference seven counted. The Republican Party has taken twenty four point five percent of the vote whereas Finna fell had taken twenty two percent and Finn again. Okay there on twenty one percent the issues that appears we driving this of more cost of housing them. What's happening on the Irish border? I will discuss that with my guests. Schutte the result has been described as something a revolution in the ballot box by Shin Feigns. Lita Mary Lee Mc Donald's so dennis four listeners. You haven't been following this as is closely as you probably makes people listening to this podcast. Can you explain to us what these results mean and cheating in what they I mean. First of all is that Leo Varadkar is almost certainly going to be out of power He continues as he shook and his government continues until the new government is formed. And then there's GonNa be some kind of coalition or some other sort of arrangement that will allow government to be formed. What you need is eighty seats one? One hundred sixty seats in the door of the parliament and give them that report. Looks like it's likely to happen is there's a foil. Although it got fewer votes is likely. Let's get more seats as likely to come back with maybe forty two seats and Shin Fain and finished well both around thirty seven seats and so even a combination Of any of those two of the three parties doesn't actually get you a majority so there's going to be a period of each of the parties or at least Shin Fain and fina in a four trying to put together majority in one way or another. They'll end up talking to one another and it'll take weeks before we actually get government James is. Is this a shock result. Xinfeng done remarkably well here. He thinks highly fat in previous elections. Yes and I think if you consider. How badly did the elections last year it is in particular is with the British action? The good at right but I mean there was a sense. Thatch inflame would underperform their opinion poll rating. I certainly think the sense in British government mint circles this week on Saturday. When voting was taking place was but the most likely result was some kind of been affoil led government in which was might well still be the result but anyone saw how well Shin famous GonNa do an aim? This actually raised an interesting systemic question. which is the the electoral system? For the reasons that dense saints about encouraging the big parties to compromise with each other and what was essentially happened is the voters have reacted into the Philadelphia Fall. Competence applied by by essentially rejecting both parties and going for the party that has been out of government engine fan. I'm not raise a very interesting question. Which is fine must be quite tempted to sit on the sidelines again? Because if they did that and you can save it like doesn't strike twice but if they basically forced the two main parties to govern together again over two traditional parties to govern together again you can see how they can set themselves operas. The sold opposition party next time round trip which worked so effectively for them this time before we get to. What's means next? Steps in terms of what type of government could being formed and mixed by see a very lengthy process in trying to work a governing role. Here let's talk about what factors have driven this result. Now when they've called the selection he was a leader who taken a tough line in the brexit talks and there is a sense that the facts that they had come to this agreement the UK might play well with voters. What's really driven? The result. Today will when Mary Lou Madonna the leader of fame finishes celebrating her victory. She ought to sit. Sit Down and write a letter to Boris Johnson thanking him for all of the help that he has given her by getting brexit dumb. Boris Johnson Remove Brexit A- as an issue in Irish politics it had in Ireland rather like in Britain just dominated everything and also actually almost suppressed discussion of any other issue for for the last two or three years. Once it was lifted then Xinfeng was able to fight this election on the issue of health housing public services and generally the feeling that although the Irish economy is doing really well you know in terms of all the indications like GDP and on employment and all the rest that actually the party. The people's lives has not improved and in they've got similar problems too many cities in Britain in that younger people they the rent is so high they can't afford. I just saved by a house. Housing is unaffordable and what people went for is very radical set of proposals from Shin Fain which is a massive house building programme big investment in public services and also not just not increasing taxes but actually abolishing a number of taxes that affect a lot of people abolishing property tax. And yes the same time. Maintaining Ireland's very low corporate tax rate of twelve and a half percent. These promises don't necessarily add up. But the fact is that as James said the public decided to punish fallen fingernail equally because regarded them even though the arena confident supply arrangements. They regard them as being equally responsible people for the failure to deal with these big problems and so they went for the radical option. Incheon James. She thinks this office lesson to the UK government. I mean we. We had a very heavy election because it would lead to in theory getting brexit done but one of the issues if he is the younger demographic and some suggest that shouldn't feigned mainland amongst every age group five clearly property and housing is a big fight driving she. Yeah the point. He's over center. Roy and the maintenance of the property-owning democracy is essential to that political survival. Because if you think of the events in people's lives it probably shifts them towards the the writing of economics it's proably having children owning home and very few homeowners you have the smaller the the the the consulate vote for the for the center right parties up. I mean the results and on in the Cretan interesting question about the nature political systems because the British system essentially the two main points have survived because we have is winner. Takes all system say you never end up with very radical history of labour and the Tories governing together so generally one tent's benefit and the Alberta then in the cycle goes that way one is this not just non but but but in many any countries in the EU is about trying to encourage the main parties together. And I think this result shows is one of the unintended consequences of can be that actually pushes people out to the more extreme option because they wished to reject the parties in government. And if that happens to be both the main parties back then pushes loud towards. I mean I don't get the sense. Dennis will criminal and I didn't get the sense. That in this campaign she in vain have been spurred on by the issues issues that someone here with Trish think incursion find that this was not a massive spike in support for our UNICEF or anything like that I mean I think it was about saying it was it was about how housing homelessness all of those issues where there's a sense but the government was being complacent will not doing enough and Dennis. That is just on that to some in the UK. It seems thinkable. That shouldn't fame diesel if if you look back to. The history of the Republican movement is the fact that there is now a new leader. In John Rollin. Gerry Adams something. That's has meant that his increase I suppose into a wider appeal manage to let go of some of its history. Yeah and when Mary Lou McDonald took over from Gerry Adams a couple of years ago. She was expected to have this kind of success. But then she didn't so for the first couple of years. They've done rather badly adly in in elections both north and south of the border and suddenly they seem to have made this breakthrough and so in a way. The result that we got over the weekend was the one on the Shin Fain had hoped for and not only. Is there Marylou McDonald's leading and she was very much front and center of the campaign. But they've got a number of other spokesman a spokeswoman who are the fresh faces who have no connection whatsoever to Northern Ireland's troubles and also just as time goes on younger people and that's really anybody under under forty or even forty five. They tend to regard the troubles in northern doesn historical event. And if they think of Gerry Adams they think of his role in the peace process rather than in his role in the events that preceded the peace process and so they've been the Irish public in the south of these seems to be kind of forgiving option fain and I think one of the reasons that is that it shouldn't fain is in government in Northern Ireland. The parties in the south like the parties in London have encouraged the up to go into government with Xinfang Insane and Xinfeng managed to get into government in Northern Ireland because they had persuaded enough people including the authorities that they had left violence behind them and and although there are some the some residue of their history of association with allied with the IRA. It's probably really just that and I think that's probably the more exposed. They are two power so for example if they were to get into government then I think the more quickly all of residue will fall away. Vega's tis unmasks at seemed to manage to me pasta troubles and should fades relations to that. Dennis I wanted. What does it mean for power-sharing because it seems as thirty one of the parties is taking the line that they do not want to form an arrangement champagne? Yes so what you had. During the election campaign was both of the traditionally traditionally big parties Vienna Vienna foil and finished wail. They both said that they would not under any circumstances. Go into any arrangement with Xinfang after the election. What's happened since is that financially of Raghu said absolutely not? We made this promise of voters wouldn't thank us for going with them and we'd prefer to be an opposition than to go in with Xinfang in Fact Fina Force leader Behold Martin has sounded much more nuanced and said that you know the party. They had to listen to what the people had said. The people clearly want change. And it's really now not so much a question of principle but certainly it's a matter of policies now. Obviously you can do quite a lot in terms of finding finding some agreement on policies and already this morning Mary Lou McDonald has made it clear that if if if she does get into coalition negotiations that Chint fans demand for a border poll on Irish unity would not be a red line in terms of going into these negotiations. That's probably just as well because it's not up to the government in Dublin. MM to authorize a border poll. That's done by the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland if He thinks that there's poppy majority for Irish unity. But still the the ocean thing does have this push for Irish unity which will probably unnerve unionists in Northern Ireland. But I do think that those issues probably won't necessarily be an impediment went to them forming some alliance with another party. What will be? I think what you see is a something of a dance over the next few weeks so probably the first thing would be the Xinfang will try to see what they can do in terms of cobbling together a government with some smaller left-wing parties. That's probably likely to fail. And it's only them him in a few weeks time that you'll get into serious negotiations which would probably be between fearful and Xinfang and although if uniform would have more seats than mentioned thing I think she would be able to argue that because they won the popular vote or at least one more of the popular vote and Fiona for that ought to be a partnership of equals. And so you could. For example. See a rotating prime ministership between me whole Martin and Mary new. McDonald's all kinds of ideas that were on thinkable on Friday.

It will be smart and fun so subscribe to Party lines ends and get it wherever you get your podcast because talking politics should be for everyone including you and me and all of Xinfeng one Ireland's election but it remains to be seen if it will be able to govern the left wing populist party once affiliated with the. IRA won more votes than any other party the over the weekend. It's a stunning result for Shin Fame. which was once seen as a hardline fringe group and the political arm of the Provisional Irish Republican Army responsible for violence and killings during the troubles? Xinfei beat to centrist parties that have governed Ireland for decades fina. Gale and Fiona Foil and Chin. Faint says it's willing to work with those parties but the feeling does not appear to be mutual. Michael Clifford is a columnist for the Irish examiner. We reached him in Dublin. Michael What message did voters Zand by giving Shin Fain. What is seen as a stunning victory on Saturday? I think the message there was they want. Change the change. They appear to want is in relation to quality of life issues as you may be aware Ireland's currently the fastest growing economy in Europe. But there's a number quality of life issues that have not recovered since the recession primarily among those is the issue of Housing and homelessness as well. There's an awful lot of as stuff around onto the health service that there's very long waiting lists for various procedures. Those are the kinds of issues that were foremost in the election. The Action Fan Promised Desk. They would change the way things are are. They make life easier. Their phrases their slogan during the election was give workers and families are break and it seems to to have reached some successful and yet it's interesting that the party only ran forty two candidates at a hundred sixty constituencies. Why were they so cautious? Well ever since the Good Friday Agreement nine hundred ninety s Xinfeng has been on an upward trajectory in republic. Down here electorally. Now that continued right through to the last general election in two thousand and sixteen since then Gerry Adams who was very controversial. Step down as President Mary Lou McDonald Donald WHO has no connection to the IRA or the past. She became president. Ask people thought this would bring them onto a higher plane. Yes in the local and European elections last year they actually lost seats. Lost nearly half their council seats. They lost most of their European members of parliament so there was a feeling that there were in some trouble and as a result assaulted at gone into defensive mode coming up to this election they actually d selected a number two candidates. They had on the basis that they're going to concentrate. I'm trying the hold onto as many seats as possible so like everybody else. They did not see this massive surge towards them does that ultimately happened in the election. This is really the biggest upset electorally in this country possibly since nineteen Turkey to him fan no is effectively on equal footing pushing with the other two parties and that is a massive upheaval in this country. You know you mentioned Gerry Adams and the troubles. It wasn't long ago. Oh really that most people would have associated in Fain with that and those many people who died at thirty five hundred people a lot of those listening outside of Ireland and probably make those associations as well but inside Ireland itself what do you think should fain represents today with those association's. You're talking about that definitely. What was a retarding factor on day advanced development of champagne in an indoor public down here and it has been for over twenty years farting south breath? Martin McGuinness. Who's now deceased would have been a colleague of Gerry Adams true? The trump Z.. Ran For president here in two thousand eleven and kept coming up atom victims of our relatives in all approach and why Mr Adams was in place that was seen as a big issue now even though he's stepped on at older generation with still considered items issue is what seemed all that for the younger generation. They merely represented a change from the the two long-standing parties and that it would seem that the younger generation ration- don't see themselves as connected to the troubles. Now remember the Good Friday Agreement twenty two years ago so perhaps anybody under forty for instance they don't associate can fan with the trouble. Is the way an older generation. Would now one issue that arises. There is that some believe and under some evidence forest that the old. IRA figures that it run the the so-called Republican movement included can fan in the IRA that they're still some extent pulling the strings in west Belfast. An older generation. I would say in this country autry still adults around the dockyard so Ashen Fain tries to move beyond that passed. How much credit does the leader Mary? Lou McDonald get for this. This victory victory ironically six months ago and I just looked at something. A colleague Mine Roast position was under pressure. Things weren't working out for no since the the campaign began three and a half weeks ago. She certainly came into her own issues. Pretty good at present yourself to the public on message to hold time. She presented her senses. Verdi Freddie empathic. She kept talking about. Give me a chance. US initially excluded from a leaders debate and discarded certain amount of sympathy. It remains to be seen whether As you well know the phrase campaigning in poetry governing improve the big league fan will be if they do get into government. Will they be take the difficult decisions that have to be taken government take care to public finance six CETERA. That's when we really see Ya. How good is McDonald's May turn out to be in Dutch regard? Prime Minister's Minister's Party Fianna Gael has said it won't work with them Fiona foils their other option a can they find partnerships. Sick minute dollar question because as you say fit against anyone work with an open yesterday in a false said it won't work with Sina Fox that it won't work within a goal in a coalition should so you have a scenario whereby we're still not sure how it's gone Turnout we need a strong government. This country over the next twelve months in particular her because the trade negotiations in relation to breaks in the EU will be at a vital stage and we have a huge interest in that because of the volume of trade we do. What do you saw ought to be very important for this country for economic outlook that we have a strong government? That's an good negotiating position over the next twelve months and in fact for for many brexit exited reopened the whole debate about Irish unification. This this Shin Fain win and I it's if it does form government It's handling handling at that I. I'm wondering how you think it will move forward. What did you see that? It'd be very interesting again. Because some people would suggest us up at unity and aboard Apollo is something of a Trojan horse in this election in that the core value within the party historically has been the United Ireland. That's what the IRA went out killed. People are up until twenty twenty odd years ago there were two political wing of the IRA distributions. The fear is that this is our core issue. The behind closed doors. The issue of Irish unity is still the man and core of Tim Fain these quality of life issues are something of a Trojan horse so people would say that some fear others would say. That's that's reality we will be watching From here to see what happens in in terms of the future of your government's thank you very much for talking with us. Thank you very much.

They're the ones who've been battling it out sharing power back back and forth for the last essentially hundred years since independence in the nineteen twenties from Britain and to see Shin Fain come ahead like this in the most recent recent poll last weekend really took everyone by surprise. These are the highest polling numbers at the party has ever received since entering the Irish parliament decades ago go it should by the way. Come with a caveat though because Xinfeng often do quite well in polls and then on election day vote often collapses. Is there a sense that maybe this selection will be different. I mean how has fain managed to kind of get to the top of the polls and who's it appealing to a lot of. The reason is thanks to the party leader to Mary.

"Hold somebody. There's, there's all sorts of issues that keep getting challenged in the court system, but they haven't worked their way up to a federal court yet lower courts have made a variety of decisions on that. But the first part, I part, seems pretty clear, Mary. It's a voluntary thing and sanctuary counties. Like Prince George's county haven't been doing it. They don't call ice and say, hey, within forty eight hours. We're going to release this guy. Wait, by the exit and pick them up. Right. So that is a choice that they made. And these two I don't want to say kids, because my feeling is when you. Unless you're six years old and committed murder, you're not a kid. You're, you're, you're an adult at the age of sixteen seventeen years old making a dull decisions. They had them several times, and they kept letting them go and that's the problem. My question is would an American citizen be treated the same way. I don't know if an American citizen, who had who had played guilty to conspiracy to commit murder, and spent ten months at a youth detention center would be released to family on the same day. I, I don't know that so ice for its part is blaming PG county. They say ISIS Baltimore director said because they were released in spite of the lawful detainers, they were afforded the opportunity to take a life. In other words, you release them. They murdered. It's your fault. That's what ISIS saying for Prince George's county is part crack correctional started the department of corrections director. Mary Lou mcdonagh, who, by the way, joins us this morning at eight thirty five so we have an opportunity to ask her about this. She said yesterday that they ignored the ice detain or a year ago. Because of guidance that they received from, from the attorney general, which says to hold someone on a civil detainers may violate their constitutional, right? They need a warrant. She says it's a fourth amendment violation to keep them. What about the communication part? What about the part where you notify them before you release? So they're just waiting by the exit to pick them up. So there's some gray area here yesterday, Larry O'Connor on his program had sheriff, Chuck Jenkins as the sheriff of Frederick county on. He said this would never happen in Frederick county sheriff Jenkins, you've been talking about these kind of crimes for quite some time. And that's why you hold the line there and actually cooperate with federal officials on this. Never time to talk about our program or two eighty seventy program with ice, which basically something like this would not happen in Frederick county, because we do not release criminals people who are in this country illegally and have committed armed are not released back onto our streets. They are turned over to ice and they are deported. Can I ask you just to the people of our listening area here understand, just sort of the logistics here? You know, let's say your office arrest, somebody for a violent crime like this or for any crime for that. Yeah. Any any crime absolutely any crime. So how, how does ice find out if there is a detainers or how do you find out if there is a detainers for, for them, we asked you with our program? We are where I have I have officers who are trained who are trained to actually prepare the detainers for the individuals to turn the detainers over the ice. It's just another step in processing. Larry. Listen, this is really non intrusive. It's simply asking to question. Someone is arrested wherever you born. And what country are you a citizen of? And if we get any other ads or other than the United States we do an investigation into that individuals immigration status. We prepare the paperwork, and we present that paperwork is who makes decision to follow that to debase the honor that detain her for it could be a situation where we don't know an individual that Jenner custody has detained and we owner that danger for my works both ways with a high, so that's how it happens in Frederick county. Prince George's county. Very different situation, a sanctuary county. So our questions this morning for Mary Lou McDonald are going to include are your hands, being tied is Prince George's county, the officials that you're responsible to that you answer to tying your hands on handling cases like this, because right now, this has fixed a fourteen year old girl was killed because of the decision that Prince George's county officials made, and I wonder if we'll ever find out who the person responsible, ultimately for that decision being made, we'll never find out if that who that person is, and I think we should find out who that person is seven twenty four w a male, thank you for being so strong.

We want to see withdrawal agreement with the European Union. We want to make sure that there is the protection and the certainty there for business above anything else. For unionists. However, there is another concern to some of their rivals amongst nationalists. The discord over Brexit could signal an opportunity the Good Friday agreement includes a clause that calls for an eventual referendum or poll on removing the Irish border entirely and uniting Ireland. When Northern Ireland was formed almost one hundred years ago, there was a clear Protestant majority over the years that majority has eroded, and is now almost gone so far no one has wanted to risk the delicate peace in Northern Ireland since the Good Friday agreement by calling for unity referendum, but the Brexit debate has changed everything here, a heart border on the island of Ireland cannot happen will not happen and is national option, Mary Lou McDonald is the president of Xinfeng traditionally seen as the political wing of the IRA if the British government insists on a reckless course of action that that brings a difficulty to the good.

The only democratically correct thing that they can do is put the issue of the border itself to the people the people to have their say saying referendum in aboard your after all on a United Ireland, absolutely. A hard border in Northern Ireland would almost certainly reignite anger. But for now, the likelihood of an outright insurgency, again is low there's been a lot said in the press about how there's a risk of returning to the kind of violence.
