Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The ongoing problem is going to be the intensification of ghettoisation of the residual Loyalist constituency.
Low-qualified but well-paying manufacturing jobs no longer exist; boys from poorer Protestant districts have low educational attainment; those who attain higher education tend to do so in Great Britain and not come back; and so on. It could go on for generations, with careful management by the Unionist politicians (for whom a resolution of grievances would not seem to be a good career plan).

Still. Reunification is perhaps harder than Germany, but easier than Korea. Surely?
