    The Brits would be obliged to cover some of the cost, and the EU would also chip in. But I think the government should establish a reunification junior ministry within the Dept. Of Taoiseach.

    Overcoming the opposition of Dublin mandarins (DoFA, DoFin etc....) whose empires would be impacted will be an issue.

    I can imagine a two-fingered gesture across the Irish Sea at that idea.

    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.
    As your OP describes it, your heading in inaccurate.

    There's a big and important if clause missing from it.

    If a referendum takes place, then you can be certain that its outcome will be respected by the Civil Services located both North and South of Slab's farm.

    However, I would assume that there would be a need for a massive and very expensive redundancy package for a large number of NI civil servants. Could be fun!
