British Press: Northern Ireland May Be Lost

43

The BBC has conducted a survey among Irish citizens and residents of British Ulster (Northern Ireland). The majority of respondents noted that within the next 25 years the Northern Ireland territories will cease to be subordinate to London and will secede from the country.


This is reported by the Daily Telegraph newspaper.

At the same time, almost half of Ulster residents are now ready to vote to preserve British rule. But almost as many would like to unite with Ireland.

As for Ireland itself, more than half of the respondents are supporters of unification with Ulster. The British press also notes that only 27 percent of Irish citizens were in favor of maintaining the current situation.

Irish people on both sides of the border believe that the borders of the United Kingdom will remain the same for the next decade, but after that, within 25 years, Northern Ireland may be lost to London.

At the same time, the overwhelming majority of respondents (75 percent in Ulster and 87 percent in Ireland) consider the Northern Ireland issue to be unresolved, so there may be a renewed outbreak of violence.

The poll was conducted shortly after British Prime Minister Boris Johnson described himself as a “proud unionist,” that is, a supporter of Northern Ireland as an integral part of the United Kingdom.

    For 25 years, either "padishah, or donkey, will surely die"

      Here is the problem if they would order a survey from Rosstat, and would be happy, 101% would be against the exit. :))

      Well this is the message - give money and we will fight for a way out ... The USSR began to cough up the Irish - they thrashed and did not weakly thrash, did not let the same Thatcher sleep well ... Then Gorbach came and the money river dried up - the Irish went to the world ... In the light of recent world events - the Irish are hinting at a river with money ... The question, in principle, is interesting - to occupy England with questions about its subjects and not flattery on Ukraine, the Baltic states and so on

        IMPORTANT - Ireland is (at least) a third richer in GDP per capita than the UK.
        Well, the "Brexit" - the Irish and the Scots were against leaving the EU.

          Ireland offshore. But "offshore" is "correct" with open beneficiaries, hence the growth of income of this country - in order to "optimize" taxation on Ireland, many European companies, by the way, some "Russian" ones, were re-registered.

      And this question is even sharper than the Scottish one, much sharper ...

      The fact is that in case of unification with Ireland, Northern Ireland IMMEDIATELY, without restrictions and discrepancies, returns to the EU.

      Therefore, the battles will be serious. And while talking about "here and now" they are openly afraid, because they remember the British repressions of the last round of the struggle.
      But they also think about 10 years, because they want to understand who is more profitable ... And this is the period for which everything will become clear.

      They need a referendum! Self-determination of peoples.
      But just in Northern Ireland, unlike Scotland, the British will torpedo it with all their might. Played democracy, and that's enough (in their opinion)!

        Northern Ireland IMMEDIATELY, without restrictions and discrepancies, returns to the EU.
        Those born in Northern Ireland are eligible for a Republic passport, just like a British one. And many people use it. In fact, the standard of living in Ireland, in comparison with the UK, despite the difference in GDP on the nose, is not higher. Above, for some reason, unemployment. In Ireland, a republic, it is more expensive to live and taxes are higher. In general, about the same. (Lived both there and there)

        And right there, IMMEDIATELY, without restrictions and discrepancies, he receives his quota for blacks and Arabs, the so-called "refugees", whom they must accept and support. It was these blacks and Arabs who were the main catalyst for Brexit.

    If England does not change its behavior towards Russia, it is quite possible that the unification of Ireland will take place even earlier.

          The old one has already become Gyorgy Shorosh, tea 91 years old will soon knock. He is not up to this, but most likely his son Alexander Soros will continue his business. Alexander, who is 34 years old, completed his postgraduate studies at Berkeley, Ph.D., and in 2011 joined the board of directors of Soros's main foundation, the Open Society, expressing a desire to continue his father's work.

    Is Russia also to blame for this? Boshirov and Petrov were sent to decompose the relations of the metropolis with Ireland?
    Well, since the cyberattacks on everyone and everything is to blame, the Russians are also to blame for the results of the elections that are not like the Russophobes in the West want; in the run over of Afro-immigrants - are we also? We are in the Skripalsky herb distilleries; in Navalnovskiye dying again we are; in BLM - we; we run the Trumpists. and what else? How versatile we are!

    I also think Northern Ireland will reunite with the Republic of Ireland.
    Previously, the essence of the conflict was religious: Catholics versus Anglicans.
    Now the influence of religions has dropped dramatically in both countries.
    And the influence of the economy has grown.
    Ireland is very rich in the EU. And Britain left the EU and is getting poorer.

      If there will be no "beloved queen" - there will be a "young king" - supporters of the "one and indivisible" Britain will greatly decrease in Scotland and Northern Ireland. The "young king" will have to develop "love of the given" from scratch.
