Calls for a border poll have been labelled ‘divisive, sectarian and unnecessary’
‘No matter how they try to dress it up or explain it away, the clamour by nationalists to hold a border poll is nothing less than an attempt to secure a deliberately divisive sectarian head count’, the Workers Party has said.
We have had no government in Northern Ireland for two years. Public services are grinding to a stand still, schools and hospitals have no budgets, major building projects can’t go ahead, child poverty, fuel poverty, a mental health crisis and the impact of welfare ‘reform’ are crippling an entire generation.
As always nationalism’s response is a ‘wrap the green flag round me’ border poll.
The political priority in Northern Ireland is the restoration of the Assembly, Executive and a working government to address the real problems that face people in their daily lives.
