Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I suspect that next year may be a little too early for the pigeons to come home to roost in Ulster. However, I think that 42% to support reunification is up from a much lower figure at the last poll.

Also, others have noted that there is NO reunification effort going on in Ulster right now and that, when leaving the UK was on offer in Scotland, leave put on 10% in 3 months once campaigning started.

The DUP are dead, spinning out of control and disintegrating. The problem with fanatics is that their first thought is always of punishing heretics, compromise is not in their DNA. They were only held together by powerful personalities, Paisley and then Foster. Non-entities don't cut it as they're now finding out. 13% is the height of the cliff from which they fall, not a baseline.

Good. British and Irish politics will be better without them.
