Correct, there was a poll on RTE last year showing only 25% of Northern Catholics would vote for UI in the short term.Catholic doesn't = A UI Supporter!
Also will there be an actually a self declared Catholic Majority or just more Catholics than Protestants with a substantial number of others especially atheists?
No need to worry so. We'll just have two predominantly Irish Catholic states sharing the one island. I don't think that was Paisley's vision.
Interview with Ian Paisley in 1971, as reported here...https://www.belfasttelegraph.co.uk/...land-this-is-what-happened-next-36821215.html.....Far into that night, Paisley eventually gave Liam Hourican of RTE an interview, in which he was asked that, if the Republic ditched the 1937 constitution (meaning the sovereignty claim over Northern Ireland) and changed certain other laws, whether he would he consider the prospect of being part of a united Ireland.
He replied, to the astonishment of the journalists, that such a situation would present an "entirely different set of circumstances"....

No because the Secretary of State would only call a border referendum it if there was a chance of it passing.Has a Border Referendum?
Again with the side stepping....are you a crab...:lol:No because the Secretary of State would only call a border referendum it if there was a chance of it passing.
The SoS will certainly not call it when it is only supported by 27% of Northern Catholics and 3% Northern Protestants.
Hope this helps.
