I was under the impression (as unpopular as it is on here) that Northern Ireland wasn't in any way financially advantageous to Southern Ireland and that they had no appetite for a united Ireland on that basis. Is that wrong?
A southern RC voter for SF last week is more likely to be a protest vote against the 2 “establishment parties” rather than - as Mary Lou McDonut will claim - is a vote wanting a United Ireland. The ROI healthcare and social housing scenario is up the creek, the last thing they want is a pile of wasters from the Creggan and Andystown, along with a significant number of peeved off unionists.

"peeved off unionists."
Probably a wee bit more than that.

Oh dear

Let’s see how the scumbags in the SMSM cover this

She’s just outed the Tarrier scum and what they sing about supporting the IRA

Police Scotland should be all over this song given the legislation regarding promoting and supporting pro terrorist songs

Let’s face it the head of Sein Fein admitting the Celtc Symphony is a terrorist supporting song is the clearest avenue to jail the bastards whmarw chanting these songs
Ignore, Ignore, Ignore?

What a worrying direction this wee island is heading in.

We're mirroring the Yanks smashing their hands down onto big red buttons; seemingly out of spite, intrigue, ignorance or apathetic f*cking boredom.

Absolutely no idea where any of us will be in ten years time.

Strange times.

If you agree wholeheartedly with this sentiment and there is a point to it, which can be expanded to include such anthems as the British National Anthem and of course the French National Anthem, then if we as individuals are going to allow space for such cultural and traditional songs and to grow a set us people and not be eternally offended by their existence and usage, then surely this allows for a song as old as The Billy Boys to also be awarded such a cultural and tribal expressional free pass and of course, the same deferent social defence?

Because if cultural expression becomes a one-way street, all we are left with is the persecution of those who are facing the wrong way and I think history tells us where that ends.
Perhaps Speirs would like to challenge her on her views. He can then get her song banned or admit that getting ours banned wasnt justified.

Come on Graham, time to step up and play. Its your game after all.

All around these islands it is bubbling up to be very problematic.

Interesting times ahead.

Those against Republicanism in both Scotland and across the water really need to sit up get our act together. There is a big wake up call coming our way.
Bring it on , hopefully we will be ready, get ready for battle , no surrender

Maybe we could have her petition UEFA to have the Billy Boys dropped from their banned list, since she doesn't want to spend her time "being offended at everything". Just a thought.

A point all the apologists tripping over them selves to keep our song book pc would do well to remember.

Everyone I know from the Republic of Ireland would support a united Ireland if there was a referendum. Polls on the subject show an overwhelming support with only 14% being opposed to the idea (66% in favour 20% no opinion)

Female politics professor from an English University, under 40, on this week and talked of "Mary Lou" and "Thatcher". Not difficult to see where her allegiances lay.
 
" we have to accept that there are certain cultural and political markers "

Wow, but we have to sit back and shut up, we are not allowed our songs, voice our beliefs, promote our traditions, the list goes on, but this mob can come out with statements like that and we have to yet again sit back, shut up and put up!

God, if we say anything that may offend "timmy" we are threatened with sectarian and racism courses at least through to fans having been jailed. Time for us to stop worrying about offending them and not making it so easy for them to take our country and not just shutting us up.

Between Adams and McDonald Sinn Fein/IRA has cornered the market in the creepiest and most loathsome pair of b@stards Ireland has ever produced. And when I hear that feckin strident voice of hers, it always tells me she'd be a lot happier with a gun in her hand (in that thought the accompanying balaclava would be a bonus).

And the RoI is now a progressive, liberal and modern society? The votes for her and her vile party suggests otherwise.

Former leader on rape charges and Bombs on the doorstep of Glasgow University didn't work on the ballot papers, something needs to register

SF have less than a quarter of the vote in NI and pretty much the same in the free state, I'm sick of hearing their view on everything this past week as if they have some big majority and the voice of the poor oppressed Catholics/Palestinians.

Weird how their rise in the south isn't being painted as the rise of nationalism like we hear in other elections across Europe. How do these rats paint themselves as cuddly nationalism when they have one of the biggest body counts in Europe? And more worryingly why does the rest of the world lap it up?

I was always under the impression that the modern ROI preferred to distance themselves from the lunatic tarrier fringe waving the tricolour.

After the political success of SF recently I’m starting to wonder.
The ROI has never been, nor will ever be friendly to Northern Ireland Protestants. People may try and dress it up otherwise but scratch the surface and their hatred comes out.

The pen is mightier than the sword. Its propaganda pure and simple.

Naizis against a 'united' Kingdom but in favour of a 'united' Ireland.

Mmm "And if we're going to take them literally or take offence we're going to spend our whole time being offended and I don't think there's any positive return in that for any of us."

Why do we need to stop signing songs then?

As is the norm, the loyalist,unionist, Protestant population will say or do nothing.
