    Default UI poll - County by county breakdown

    % of people who would vote to remain in the UK (Page 20) - thanks to politics.ie member who posted this info:

    Belfast City: 60%
    Greater Belfast: 77%
    Down: 66%
    Armagh: 64%
    Tyrone + Fermanagh: 53%
    Derry: 55%
    Antrim: 84%

    Is repartition a possibility based on this? It remains a possibility based on this that Derry, Fermanagh-Tyrone could vote for a UI in a referendum in the future. If so would you support repartition?

    Don't see why not, the unionists could hardly complain as their statelet is based on the same principle. You could even divide Belfast, like Berlin, with safe passage corridors for Irish Republicans to travel back and forth.

    Armagh or just South Armagh should definitely be in the Republic. Even unionist politicians would prefer if it weren't in the six county state. Bandit Country-The IRA in South Armagh is a fascinating insight into South Armagh and the republican activities that have occurred through the years.

    Really redivision is something to consider only if it was decided that it would do some good by getting a particularly unhappy minority out of where they dont want to be or some other such thing.Some of the northern posters on here seem to be saying that in the mixed areas the Catholics are quite happy to be British whereas in the strongly Catholic areas they have remained Irish.So maybe a peaceful repartition would have some merits-it's very hard to get excited about though but in the clear light of the decline of an interest in a UI among many Catholics it would really be up to the others to decide to simply give up on the idea and accept permanent partition and go for redivision.I dont see it but maybe.

    I think you mean cowardly murders.

    Yes to abortions, this gombeen just made my mind up
    Even with the usual caveats attached to opinion polls, a 65% to 17% majority for Northern Ireland remaining in the UK suggests little room for doubt.

    The british miltary certainly didn't think the boys in South Armagh were cowardly, quite the opposite in fact.

    If the Border Commission of the 1920s only functioned properly, Fermanagh, Tyrone, South Armagh, South Down and Derry City would rightfully have been put in the Free State. Parts of East Donegal and North Monaghan with protestant majorities would have gone to Northern Ireland.
