DMcG BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture? (4132* d) RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture? 16 Apr 19


Similarly reunification for the North to become part of the republic of Ireland would be a change to their position, leaving the UK, and becoming a part of the EU.
Yes. it was a serious question, and one that I feel should be made totally clear by anyone who suggests that the two parts of Ireland should vote for reunification.


Then let me be totally clear. There are very few countries, to the best of my admittedly very limited knowledge, that fight for and win independence and then decide to re-unify with the opponent, and particularly not in a way that hands the ultimate authority back to the old opponent. It is of course theoretically possible, just as it is possible for say India to decide to become subject to British rule, but in both cases I think it vanishingly unlikely and a fantastical notion. In my opinion.
