Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

tbh I think there's an opportunity here for Ireland to win. Yes, I think that you're gonna have to gloss over the change in the Constitutional arrangment of Ulster because it seems quite evident to most of the UK that the divergence of Ulster from the UK is going to be far greater than than from Ireland.
Ulster really has gotten out from under. Great Britain has jumped off a cliff and managed to not drag Ulster down with it.
Ulster Unionism  has only thrived on the basis of the economic advantage for the protestant population of allegiance to Westminster. But now the economic advantage goes the other way.
Sure, there will be the fanatics, the "Identity British" who will never accept, but most people aren't like that. Given a choice of an economy that's growing over the one that is imploding, most Ulster people are gonna vote with their wallets.
Maybe not in 2021, but by 2023 most of the 6 counties are gonna be begging to be let into the house of sanity.
I just don't see what the problem is, don't look a gift horse in the mouth. Brexit could enable the righting of a terrible wrong.
