    The wealth gap between NI and the south is larger than between East and West Germany in 1989.

    The Dublin government needs to be putting money aside for this.

    We don't have the financial resources to fund NI's deficit with London.

    The Republic of Ireland would cease to exist. The country would have a population over 6.5m. We all would pay, we all would receive. A United ireland is not just adding 6 counties under dublin control. The net effect of a United ireland is a gain for all.

    The poll was commissioned was GUE/NGL which is SF's EP group.

    So, a tiny wee pinch of salt might be required.

    A new opinion poll has shown that 58% of Northerners wish to remain in the customs union and single market after Brexit. This alone shows that the DUP does not have a mandate to dictate the future of NI.

    But amazingly, in the event of a hard Brexit, 48% of those surveyed say they would vote for a United Ireland.

    It seems we're getting closer and closer to that day when a border poll will be called.
    Moving from one Union to another, how refreshing.
