Sinn Fein want Northern Ireland to be destroyed as part of a united Ireland, so why would they make NI prosperous and stable?
Sinn Fein want Northern Ireland to be destroyed as part of a united Ireland, so why would they make NI prosperous and stable?

David Montgomery is right (‘Put NI politicians at heart of talks to resolve protocol dispute,’ October 28, see link below) when he says that there is a new generation of people growing up in Northern Ireland who feel they belong,whatever their political,cultural,or religious persuasion.

He also calls for Northern Ireland politicians to be put at the heart of talks to resolve the Protocol issues and says that this would unite them in a common cause of extracting the best possible result for economic development here.

What he fails to recognise is that one Party Sinn Fein in a mandatory coalition Executive has no desire to make Northern Ireland prosperous and stable. Why would it when they want it to be destroyed and recreated as part of a United Ireland.
