In my 2:35 post just above, what I said was:

... an Irish border poll is a real possibility, even a likelihood, if Britain leaves without an agreement in place.

If there ends up being no deal, do you really, really, really, really, really, really think Ireland - which is a nation in its own hard-fought right, remember - would voluntarily choose to give up her independence, her seat at the table of a large stable trading bloc, and its funding support, to cleave unto a foundering Britain who has cast herself adrift, with the population deeply riven? Seriously?
