When are people going to get it into their heads we are different jurisdictions and different countries.
This isn't the GAA or IRFU no matter how much one dreams.
Voters in Northern Ireland get to vote for politicians in elections to their local assembly and their parliament in Westminister.
At the moment they can't sort out their own assembly and no one is talking or voting on anything there.
Also one of the major parties still refuses to sit, talk or vote in their actual national parliament in London.
And yet you think these people should be allowed speak and even worse vote in our parliament in a separate country.
They are NOT ELECTED by people in this country and those have no rights to have their say.

Until such time as there is a united Ireland people, no matter if they are unionist, republican, black, white, catholic, protestant should not have the right to have their public representatives speak or make decisions for the people that live and pay taxes in a separate country.

No I would safely bet they are not the Northern politicians that most have in mind.
