    Default New poll puts RoI support for united Ireland at 60%, even with €9b annual cost

    The Ireland Thinks survey shows a 10% swing towards unity, compared with a March poll that saw both options record 50% when a caveat concerning a €9 billion annual subvention was added. The biggest increase involves males under 45, who show 72% support for a united Ireland, with women over 45 most sceptical on 56%.

    These wouldn't be the same pollsters who said Brexit would be defeated, Scottish independence would be passed, the tories would have a 20 point lead over labour in the last election and who guaranteed us president David Norris?

    Anything worth having costs money

    If a United ireland led to better services (nhs, local authority), synergies in services, an increase in intra-Ireland trade, a new constitution, a stronger football team and ultimately saves everyone money would you vote in favour?
    30% would still vote no, basically for bigoted reasons against them up there who are just trouble and fear of breaking up the established order here.

    NI would see a massive economic boom if unified under Dublin's pro-FDI rule.

    Which is the sort of argument the more realistic brexiteers are resorting to.

    Tell them the cost will be taken out of social welfare and see what the support is like.

    BTW, as things stand (under the GFA) would we in the RoI have a vote on the matter?

    Or would this border poll be confined to the actual six counties themselves?
