McNulty: Border Poll should not be treated as a race to the finish line
SDLP Spokesperson for Reconciliation, Justin McNulty MLA, has said that any future border poll should not be treated as a race to the finish line by any party.
Despite the Prime Minister’s comment that she believes Unionists would not be guaranteed a win in a border poll, it is imperative that Nationalists recognise the body of work that needs to be done to ensure its success and sustainability.
The MLA for Newry and Armagh said:
“A border poll should not be considered a race to the finish line for Nationalists, but rather an opportunity to sell a New Ireland to the unionist community, one that will be fully inclusive of their identity, and one that they too shape the future of.
“Persuasion, honesty and creativity will be required moving forward with this discussion.”
