    Default 51% of NI voters want a Border poll within five years

    According to the latest LucidTalk opinion poll on the subject - unsurprisingly the figure is 76-16 in favour among Catholics, but even Protestant support is surprisingly high, at 68-26 against. As for the Irish language act, that also has 52% approval, with 90% of Catholics and 30% of Protestants backing the idea:

    No surprise here really, less than a year after the Brexit vote, low wage economy, rising prices and uncertainty have had an influence on those figures.


    Two more years or even less will increase those percentages significantly in favor of unity.

    I am.

    Very.

    And will remain so until I've been convinced that Her Majesty's government will continue to subsidise the two parasitic tribes until long after my death.

    Should there not be a lot of preparation work done before people are asked so that people know what they will get? (or is this border poll designed to lose?)

    Irish language act?

    The only poll that counts is elections.

    SF is only at 28%. They need to be at 50% for a border poll.

    SDLP are stoopers and West Brits-So the Shinners tell us.
    We appreciate the move by the Government today and remind ourselves that it is a bail-out by taxpayers for the banks. Pearse Doherty

    Wow....!

    Things are moving fast. I'm loath to read too much into these figures but this is very interesting.

    There is this line from the article:
    Our survey, conducted by LucidTalk, suggests that some unionists — certain of victory — are backing a border poll in order to shut down the issue.

    After Jimmy Deenihans performance on Nolan Live I have zero confidence the Irish govt will run a strong or persuasive campaign.
    Save the 27th.
