There will never be a united ireland
Contrary to Mr McGuinness`s assertion that a united ireland is inevitable election results indicate the opposite. In the general election in Northern Ireland the unionist vote went up to 46% while the overall combined republican and nationalist vote declined to 38% with Sinn Fein losing Fermanagh by a massive 500 votes. Mr McGuinness the union is appealing to more and more nationalist voters in northern Ireland. However we need a refinement in electoral policy. A return to full democracy is the next step. Power sharing was an interim solution but to free up decision making, a return to full democracy in Northern Ireland as in any other country is the inevitable outcome. That means majority rule.
