We’ve already seen glimpses of what a SF-run united Ireland would be like
Would it be an utopian society of equals, or a society in which it was one rule for republicans and a different set of rules for the rest of us?
In Irish society funeral wakes are a long standing tradition, be they fuelled by whiskey or tea and tray bakes.
Yet we were told that they had to be suspended for the greater good – and largely these rules were adhered to.
For many this represented a painful sacrifice, which was made all-the-more painful by the sight of the republican movement thumbing their noses at the rest of us and organising a funeral with a cast of thousands.
So what would life be like in a Sinn Fein dominated Ireland?
Great for ‘themselves alone’.
But for the rest of us...?
