I've tried to explain democracy to you before, you need to do some homework on it yourself at this stage. Otherwise you look ignorant and foolish.

Your attempt to personalise this debate shows your childishness- your background is unprovable and therefore irrelevant. But you disagree with all SF arguments.

You understand economics - let's hear that garbled attempt to explain simple economics again.

We're better off with lower wages, no investment and 40% not working?

You should take over the unionist campaign in the upcoming border poll.

I see your grasp of geography is as ridiculous as your grasp of mathematics. Or economics.

Of course, Citi have full details of the lower pay structure in Belfast on their website!

Corroborated by the fact that average wages are much lower here than in Britain. Or the rest of Ireland.

Do I really need to take you through the numbers again? They're on this article. I'll leave you to have another go first.

Which mainland are you discussing? We are on mainland Ireland in case you forgot. Do you mean Britain?

There is an entirely different pay structure in Citi (and many other companies) between Britain and here. Citi workers in belfast are paid less and often attempt to get a transfer to Britain in order to get the British rate of pay - which is maintained on their return to Ireland. However as you can imagine Citi allows very few such transfers as their reason for moving here is to access highly qualified staff at a fraction of the British rate.

Best to check your grammar before posting.

Really, maybe that's why Citi (to name one of many) employ thousands of highly qualified tech graduates in belfast paying them a fraction of the rate available in Britain or Dublin.

They recently announced a $5bn expansion is absolutely correct.

It is now in line for an even greater investment as the newest technology chips are widely expected to be manufactured in Kildare.

Given previous discussions I don't expect you to understand much of this.

Or offer anything positive to any discussion.

Good to see that unionists are no longer a majority though. Wouldn't you agree?

You're a SF voter, hilarious!

Unionists are currently a minority. Nationalists will soon be a majority. Young nationalists are aware of the opportunities south of the border and the higher wages and generally greater wealth.

Yet you believe unionists don't need to offer anything!

Or even something better than the current low wage job, cuts to public sector jobs and zero investment.

Good luck with that strategy in the upcoming border poll.

Your argument is nonsensical.

I have explained that politicians elected in Britain are ultimately responsible for these decision. Therefore they are likely to favour their home constituencies in Britain. Further job losses in the public sector are inevitable as the conservatives have said cuts will continue until 2020.

Putting these 2 facts together means that this region is likely to see more public sector jobs cut.
