A border poll would reinforce the Union


Brexit confusion reigns, especially in Northern Ireland, where the underlying white elephant for republicans is their concept and agenda of a united Ireland under their control.

To set Brexit agreements in a more realistic framework before anything is finalised would be an opportune time for all those living on the island of Ireland to vote on two simple questions:

1: Do you want government structures to remain as they are, or;

2: Do you want there to be a 32-county administration.

Agreement by both parts of the island would be necessary before any arrangements are set in motion.

Remembering the failure of republicans to win the vote against the setting up of the 26-county state, and their defeat in the ensuing civil war they started there, as well as their failure since then to force the people of the six counties to agree with them, I doubt the population of the 26 counties, or the six counties, will agree to any change for the foreseeable future.
