Debate or divisions? October 27, 2020

Hadn’t realised this:

While there is uncritical support for Shared Island within the Fianna Fáil parliamentary party, several TDs have privately questioned the Taoiseach’s commitment to Fianna Fáil’s core policy of a united Ireland.Several have also argued a Border poll should take place within the next decade.

And:

Laois-Offaly TD Barry Cowen has said he strongly supports the Shared Ireland initiative as recommitment to the Belfast Agreement. He added he agreed with former taoiseach Bertie Ahern that there should be a poll on the 30th anniversary of the agreement in 2028.

That’s an interesting proposal re a 30th anniversary poll.

‘Shared Island’ or ‘Shared Ireland’? One is quite a bit more partitionist than the other.

Ireland is already shared. The British Imperial Sate controls the 6 counties and the 26 county state is a US Aircraft Carrier.
FF is a party that is bitterly opposed to a United Independent Irish Republic, FG supports the Black and Tans.
This “shared Ireland” stuff is just imperialist propaganda

FF’s shift in thinking is remarkable in a way.
