    Let the Unionist’s withdraw their support and let the government fall. After a general election hopefully the UK and Eire will be able to formulate an agreement that is in the best interests of both countries. With an included referendum of whether the UK accepts Ulster as part of the UK. Leaving the Unionists to their proper role of narrow bigots in a provincial back-water.

    I would like to see the Republic of Ireland leave the EU then there would be no troubles with Brexit. You will not get the people of Northern Ireland to agree to a union with the Republic as they know which side their bread is buttered.

    The majority of voters in NI voted to remain in the EU. A united Ireland would give them that.
    56% to 44% for staying in the EU was the NI vote folks..... DUP lost their majority in that last GE. Gerry Adams' lot are becoming more and more popular in the province...

    The question is why is this piece appearing in Mercopenguin, a British government propaganda organ supposedly devoted to America, South America and the “South Atlantic”?
