    How about having a referendum on it?
    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

They also don't want a unified Ireland as even the Catholics in the North see they're onto a good thing with the >£10bn per year subsidy they enjoy. Southern Ireland can't afford integration financially, politically and socially
    Integrating East Germany was much harder, EU will help in this case

    I think the last will happen because there’s no way Eire will erect bricks and mortar border posts on the 1st November

    If there was a second referendum (which you seem to be against), would you accept the result?
