Mike Nesbit (previous Unionist leader) said he describes himself as British and Irish. He ran for the Ireland team when he was younger.
I’d say a fair amount of liberal unionists like being part of Europe (the UUP were anti-Brexit) and for the first time…a modern Dublin with its social values…seems more attractive than a little englander state that looks inwards and where the DUP rule the roost.
And the demographics are all pointing in one direction.
If there ever is a UI there’d have to be big changes.
Armagh would have to remain where it is…as would South Derry due to their accent. And Omagh would be the capital. Dublin would be absorbed by Meath with Ballymun given to Kerry for good measure. First president would be Peter Canavan.
So who’s with me? Anyone?
