Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Sinn Fein have all sorts of fancy ideas :
WILL THE UNION Jack ever fly over Leinster House in the scenario of a united Ireland?

Sinn Féin's finance spokesperson Pearse Doherty told RTÉ Raidió na Gaeltachta that he couldn't see the day when that would happen, but added that a discussion was needed to accommodate those of a unionist tradition in a new Ireland.

"We need a conversation about symbolism, for the million people who identify as British and who believe deeply in their identity. In this new Ireland, it is important that those symbols are part of this new Ireland.


The party leader Mary Lou McDonald has made similar comments in the recent past, telling this website that she is open to discussions on Ireland rejoining the Commonwealth.

But not NATO, surely?

NATO is never part of the conversation. NATO is not seen as part of the British Irish relationship. Membership of the Commonwealth, on the other hand, provides the symbolism of a closer relationship with Britain while providing none of the substance, an ideal solution from a republican point of view.
