UNITED IRELAND VOTE SEEMS UNLIKELY

One of the more unusual consequences of Brexit (the UK's decision to leave the European Union) are the calls for a vote on a United Ireland.

Any such 'border poll' would require a majority of residents of Northern Ireland to vote in its favour. Recent surveys have indicated that the Republican wish to have a United Ireland would fail dramatically as the combination of Unionists and the majority of Independents, Greens and immigrants would favour economic stability by remaining within the UK.

However the advent of Brexit is seen by many within Sinn Fein as a potential game-changer.

Given that the six Counties comprising Northern Ireland voted to remain within the EU (as did Scotland and Wales), the possibility of a vote on Irish unity in the North based on remaining within the EU is seen as one that may be attractive to moderates in Ulster.

At the moment though, this seems unlikely. However, if Scotland is granted its wish for a second independence referendum then it would be a lot harder to resist similar calls in Ulster

yes reg dilemma is order of the day all round. i am sure that a relatively simple method is available for all concerned but pollies always want to make big of things like this
once they look at what both countries have to export the dice shall be cast.

ireland: irish stew, peat, whiskey and potcheen.

scotland: edinburgh rock, tartan, porridge and whiskey
