Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
That's actually pretty mind-blowing.
Northern Irelanders are very aware of being the meat in the sandwich, they are already living in an economically depressed region and they are far more likely to have thought through the impact of Brexit than the average Briton.

Given the extremely sectarian nature of local politics, a surprisingly high (to me) fraction of habitual unionists to change position.

But representative democracy being what it is, that's highly unlikely to result in a majority of elected representatives in favour of Irish unity.
