Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I fear you are being a mite optimistic. When the clarion call of the Union being in danger is raised, many die-hard unionists may yet rally to the DUP cause. The Union outweighs all other political and personality considerations for them. The past is anther country and it is nationalists' fault they didn't get the Brexit they wanted.

The demographic and economic shifts portend a deeper structural change, but it could be another generation before that is given political reality. Hardly anyone outside of Sinn Fein is pushing for it to happen soon. Why rock the boat when it is sailing in your direction anyway?
