    It's about money the EU hands over so ex-terrorist dead beats can have a job.

    If the funding stops it wont be just Ex-IRA who wont be happy.

    Plenty of Loyalist terrorists on the gravy train.

    It’s hard to see what violence could achieve. What would the demand be? The question of unity is a matter of persuasion now. In any case people of all backgrounds will suffer if Brexit is a disaster. For one episode the dreary steeples will be in the same lifeboat if I may mix my metaphors. It will be up to the people on both sides to work out what their best future is.

    I listened to this man on drivetime. He is more clued in and aware than our local Tory supporters.

    He suggests a referendum which seems reasonable but thing is it would probably have nothing to do with trade issues and would degenerate into a tribal and sectarian headcount.

    A substantial PUL/British right wing element are itching for the conflict for restart in the North. Michael Gove wrote a paper on the Good Friday Agreement where he opined that Ireland should never be consulted about the North and the SAS should be sent in again. The DUP and other Loyalist extremists want a 300 mile razor wire, watchtower, machine guns border and Paddy Irishman to be treated like he was in the 19th century. I have been saying for a long time that these ultra British Nationalists are deliberately provoking an Irish Republican campaign.

    Oh come on when has civil disobedience and peaceful protests have British and Unionist opposers resorting to violence............. ok well apart from 1920's. 30's 40's etc etc etc etc

    Not at all. It will be about the economy. 57% of those who voted in the referendum wished to remain in the EU. A great many of those were not nationalists. Only sectarian head counters would oppose this suggested referendum .

    The GFA makes much mention of the EU context although a literal reading of it doesn't require the UK to remain in the EU. However, there is no way one can maintain the structures and levels of cross-border cooperation described in the GFA if there's a hard border.
    The British government, and a sizeable section of the population there (largely over 60 and harbouring notions of empirical importance) have their heads firmly embedded in their anal canals.

    For a glimpse into this nether-world read the comments section on any EU-related story on the BBC news site.

    The levels of detachment from reality are positively Lewis Carrolesque.

    Except that the previous brexit vote demonstrates otherwise. Perhaps a little studying of the situation might do you some good. This tolandesque sighting of "tribalism" at all manner of things is getting a little tiresome.
