    Northern Ireland is a burden on the rest of the UK. We can't let it get in the way of Brexit

    https://www.telegraph.co.uk/politic...eland-burden-rest-uk-cant-let-get-way-brexit/

    The EU talks are still in danger of collapsing because of Northern Ireland at a time when the majority of people who live there think they will be part of a united Ireland within ten years, according to Lord Ashcroft’s September poll.

    Northern Ireland has long been a millstone round the neck of the rest of the UK and to fail to take back our independence because of it would be an historic tragedy. It is not widely known that it costs the UK more to support Northern Ireland than it does to be in the EU.

    Could you explain this?

    https://www.politico.eu/article/northern-irelands-post-election-refocus/

    When the DUP held the balance of power in Westminster, there was seemingly little incentive for them to get Northern Ireland’s government up and running. Now they are facing the prospect of a Brexit they don’t like and with little leverage to thwart the government.


    So having a devolved government may be their best chance to make sure Northern Ireland’s voice is heard in Brexit preparations, and in the upcoming trade talks.
