Is it good for Poland as Sinn Fein will win today in Northen Ireland? In the end, it means further insult to Great Britain, i.e. the Polish ally.

A genuine question, what do you mean by "further insult"?

Brexit, corona, possible independance of Scotland are other insults to GB Sir.

No. Sinn Fein are the largest single party (in a very multiparty assembly) however they didn't win as such. Even if they had, GB has been trying to get rid of NI for a few years now; it costs money and very few people on the U.K.mainland apart from some Rangers fans want to keep it.

It won't actually make any real difference since the Shinners didn't win a majority. They are expected to get 29 out of 90 seats. The other seats have all been won by parties that don't support reunification.

In fact, if the DUP (extreme unionists) and the UUP (traditional unionists) were to form a coalition if coalitions are allowed there they'd have 31 seats. As it stands, the DUP have to consent to the Shinners appointing a first minister and at Stormont anything can and does happen.

Nice try for trolling, however NI isn't the Donbas...

Brexit, corona, possible independance of Scotland are other insults to GB

None of these are insults at all. Now run along and stop funding Putin...

Still not sure what you mean, and how does this effect Poland? I'm asking because I've got an interest in Irish politics.

I was wondering the same.

I've got an interest in Irish politics

Me less so, however I broadly support the SDLP and have a lot of respect for the Alliance Party.

I don't think you are trolling, but could you please explain how Poland is involved in this?

@Vincent
Polish government has a big affinity to GB even now when they are EU outseider. So every change in GB can affect Poland.

So how, in your opinion, would a party having 29 MLIs rather than the 27 MLIs they won last time "affect Poland"?

Changes to NI won't happen anytime soon, so you can stop worrying. Did you know that there are many poles living in the Republic of Ireland, and Polish is now the second language?

@Vincent ; Poles living i NI.
Do they elect Sinn Fein? I don't think so.

I'm quite sure they couldn't vote in this election.

Some of them surely could and the are all Catholics. But I think, most of them wouldn't elect Sinn Fein. But I can be wrong.
jon357 69 | 19,408

the are all Catholics

In which case some or many may prefer the centre left SDLP or the moderate Alliance Party rather than the very left wing Sinn Fein.

the very left wing Sinn Fein

Yes,very left wing and very supportive of terorism.

IRA doesn't seem to exist, so what kind of terrorist they support?

Here are the final results. Totting them up, it looks as if the two unionist parties together hold all the keys. I suspect there may be interesting times ahead.

It won't affect Poland in any way whatsoever. However, it's a very significant day in the history of NI because for the first time in a hundred years, a Nationalist party will be the largest single party in the Assembly. That's hugely important and symbolic for the people of NI but as Vincent says, it will be a long time before anything much changes there. You won't see NI leaving the UK for a long time yet, if ever.

I checked it out and seems to me that DUP are run by idiots. It is a miracle they didn't lost more votes then they did.

All far right parties and/or nationalistic parties are.

These are too extreme even for the UUP.

Brexit made things very complicated. The EU will not give up. Whether there will be a custom border between Ireland and Northern Ireland?
Cojestdocholery 2 | 1,070

I mean who cares? Is that really an important issue on this forum?
The way the things are going I wouldn't be suprised if England sold Northern Ireland to the highest bidder.To get rid of the problem.

Language exercises, but also in private.

Well, I care because I'm Irish. I mean, I care about any kind of border in Ireland - but I agree it really has very little relevance for Poland either way. At least I can't think of any off the top of my head.

Language exercises

You mean you want to improve your English skills? Fair enoughski :))

GB was 15 years, year for year my(our) holiday land. Until Brexit. After that I was never in GB. Sinn Fein win is propably aftermath of Brexit.

Not really, except for posters from Ireland or with strong links to it. Most of those who have an opinion only want peace, decency and common sense. The Troubles are long over.

To get rid of the problem.

It is certainly a money sink for the U.K. and would be an economic problem for the Republic of Ireland became united tomorrow. A political problem too since the Orange people can be aggressive about it. It will be united one day, however not yet; there will need to be economic and demographic changes first

It isn't relevant to Poland. There are Poles living in Ulster and there are Poles living in the republic. There is an argument with the EU about customs borders however the eu and arguments are almost synonymous at the moment..

How so??

Agree. Except for Irish/Polish businesses that would be affected by the customs issue.

@Alien, this might interest you:

A 40 min video in Polish made by Onet about the second generation of Poles, living and working in Ireland. It might convince you to visit Ireland for your 'holiday land' :))
