Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Display:
The DUP hate the GFA because, enshrined within it, is  poison pill. Should a majority in Ulster indicate in a referendum, that the Westminster govt are obliged to organise if requested, that they wish to leave the Union and join the Republic that this desire will be granted without objection.

Given that Ulster voted overwhelmingly to Remain in the EU and that Ulster will suffer disproportionately from any brexit solution, the chances are that sentiment to dissolve the Union will quickly gain force.

I cannot see ulster staying with the UK for even a decade after brexit, and probably leaving in 3 - 4 years after no deal.
