Wouldn't make any difference Eamonn. A point alot of people on here dont seem to grasp is that alot of people up here in the north dont want to be ruled by the British so why should they vote to put more mouths to the trough to feed of the scraps that the brits have to offer.
Economically the north is being held back by the brits
They are trying to ruin our rural communities with the planning laws which over time will force people into towns.
A border poll has to take place it might not be a majority yes but it will make the prods sweat and if the result was close then it would really put the cat amongst the pigeons

Anyone who supports the ongoing partition of this island is economically holding the north back.  Partition is and has been a disaster for the island of Ireland, and brexit magnifies the ridiculousness of that partition.

There is a very strong case to be made that partition significantly holds back the economy of the island. Wouldn't call it a leap to say that's the British holding back the north's economy.

Not sure what the Jesus fella has to say about it, but I'm sure Tony will tell me how good Catholics must support partition and those who don't sanctimoniously pontificate agreeing with his (Tony or Jesus) opinions are going to hell...

Of course partition has retarded the norths economic growth. A century ago it was a powerhouse, and the wealthiest city on the island, now its embarrassing how far it lags behind Dublin. It being run as a loyalist fiefdom post-partition, with a blind eye turned by London meant they were blowing any chance they had of making it a success, and also encouraging London to ignore it, a policy which will never be reversed now.

The vast majority of nationalists voted for a party whose manifesto was not to take their seats.

There can be no buyers remorse .

I say that as someone who is very EU sceptic .

Completely agree with all of this. The north is an econmic hole,and thats coming from someone who grew up in it and has lived for several years in the south. The social and economic difference between the two "states" highlights this.

Actually, he hadn't made clear that he was referring to a specific vote in parliament on 11th September 2017.

This vote was enhanced by 7 Labour MPs joining the Tories and a considerable number of them abstaining.
