One of the BIGGEST LIES in current Northern Ireland politics is that “the constitutional position is settled.”
Both the DUP and UUP like to pretend this – and openly declare so in their election literature. But they are either fools or knaves to suggest this and here is a little light on the subject.
The SDLP is to seek a referendum on a united Ireland, the party’s election manifesto confirmed yesterday. The party pledged it will seek the plebiscite which should be timed when an Assembly and Executive are “operating stably”. And the SDLP blueprint said it would campaign “vigorously” in favour of a ‘yes’ vote. Sinn Fein/IRA are openly in favour of the destruction of Northern Ireland so I can’t see them objecting to such a referendum.
Therefore, IF the constitutional has been settled thanks to brilliant Unionist negotiating skills (LOL) HOW COME nationalists and Republicans are preparing to run a referendum on Irish Unity???? Who is lying to whom?
