United Ireland fears: the UK is indifferent to Sinn Fein’s ‘probable’ ascendancy in Belfast and Dublin.

It has been stated that Ireland is on the verge of becoming a united island because the UK appears to be blind to the emergence of Sinn Fein on both sides of the border.

According to one Irish journalist, Sinn Féin is polling at 37% in the Republic, leaving Fine Gael and Fianna Fáil “in their dust,” while Fine Gael and Fianna Fáil have failed to raise even a single eyebrow in Westminster. Focusing emphasis on other matters, according to Finn McRedmond, demonstrates London’s “wilful ignorance of Northern Ireland” and Irish politics, and there are fears that this could pave the way for a united Ireland.

“It is the inability to see the emergence of yet another non-trivial shift in Ireland’s political environment that beggars belief,” Ms McRedmond writes in an article for the Irish Times. “Didn’t anyone learn anything?” Tom McTague, an analyst at The Atlantic, stated that London should pay notice to the fact that Sinn Fein is surging into the lead as both the North and the Republic of Ireland’s primary political party.

“Time to pay notice,” Mr McTague wrote on Twitter. By 2025, it is more likely, if not certain, that Sinn Fein will head the government in Belfast and Dublin.” “The 2024 consent vote on the protocol will take place in this setting, and the prospect of a border poll soon after,” he continued. Others on Twitter, weighing in on the issue, argue that London has abandoned Unionists as a result of Brexit, citing problems with border checks as an example.

“This is why we’re getting all the ToryDUP hysteria around Article 16,” Eoin Sheehan stated. Their Brexit agreement has resulted in the formation of an economic United Ireland. Businesses in Northern Ireland are doing well. Sabre-rattling about the Protocol is about ‘preserving’ the Union – a Union that has been jeopardized by Brexit.” According to an Ireland Elects survey, Sinn Fein might win up to 33% of seats in the Northern Ireland Assembly, while the DUP is in fourth position with only 12% of the vote.

Catholics and Republicans are expanding in numbers on the island of Ireland, notably in the north, according to changing demographics.

Sinn Fein’s John Finucane’s landslide victory over DUP candidate Nigel Dodds in North Belfast demonstrated how the party is on the rise.

Sinn Fein also won the elections in Ireland in 2020. “Brinkwire News Summary.”
