    Default Unification or Relocation

    When the inevitable happens and our country is reunited should the Irish and British
    governments offer a relocation package to those who are not so enamoured with this outcome.
    I presume there are those particularly in the unionist community who may if offered take up this option.
    What do you think?

    I'd support this.
    As a Southern taxpayer, I'd love a relocation package to Italy, France or Portugal.

    " reunited " implies that there was once a single political entity.

    What would be wrong with the refugee centres already in existence? It would be discriminatory against all others applying for asylum in the UK to draw a distinction between some groups of refugees and not others.

    History will record with the greatest astonishment that those who had the most to lose did the least to prevent its happening.
