Uh-oh, a massive 71 percent of British people who voted to leave the EU say they want so-called Northern Ireland out of the UK

New YouGov poll shows that seventy one percent - yes, that's a MASSIVE 71 PERCENT - seachtó a haon faoin gcéad of British people who voted to leave the EU say, they would dump the 6 counties rather than stay connected to the European Union. Only a mere 29 percent of British people want anything to do with so-called Northern Ireland.

There is significant support in Britain for Ireland to reunify as a political entity. The British Social Attitudes Survey poll was run 19 times between 1983 and 2007, with each result being in favour of Irish unity. The highest support for reunification came in 1994 with 59.36% of the respondents supporting Irish reunification, while only 24.09% supported Northern Ireland remaining in the UK.

"LBC can reveal that more Brits would prioritise leaving the European Union than maintaining the United Kingdom in its current form.

Our poll with YouGov shows that 36% of people think leaving the EU is more of a priority than keeping Northern Ireland in the United Kingdom (29%).

And 71% of people that chose the EU over Northern Ireland voted Brexit."

A majority of a majority. First post the post and all that. By I take your point. Wonder what the proportion of remain voters is?
An LBC poll would cheerfully ditch the north of England, Scotland and Wales. I wouldn't be wetting myself over it if I were you.

This is not new news. Polls have shown for a long time a higher proportion of Brits favour a United Ireland than the proportion of Irish Nationalists that do.

Notwithstanding the numerous flaws in reading too much into radio station polls, the ongoing uncertainties of the border post Brexit must be having an influence in higher political circles. The reunification of Ireland would solve all those border issues overnight.

Which begs the question - why are SF not agitating more for a border poll? They could contest the next election on precisely that issue and if they get a majority then there would be justifiable pressure on the SOS to call a poll.
