Sinn Fein unity quest unconvincing

SO now Martin McGuinness blames the governments of Dublin and Britain for political inertia and wants America to become more involved in Sinn Fein's quest for Irish unity.

Sinn Fein's modus operandi to unite Ireland reminds me of one who plays the lottery: they have played every trick imaginable to get the elusive six numbers, but continually fail at the last stage.

So I ask Sinn Fein: is it the land they want unified, or the people of the 32 counties?

I welcome Sinn Fein sharing government here, but if they are sincere in wanting Ireland's unification, they are not convincing me of having reached the standard where all of us can share this small island in harmony.
