Northern Ireland will leave UK within 25 years, say majority of people on both sides of border

A majority of people on both sides of the Irish border believe Northern Ireland will leave the UK within 25 years, a new poll has found.

Just shy of half of respondents in the North would vote to remain in the UK if there was a poll tomorrow, with 43 per cent backing a united Ireland and eight per cent reporting that they have not yet decided.

In the Republic, 51 per cent said they would vote for a united Ireland, 27 per cent would vote to keep the United Kingdom together and 22 per cent were unsure.

The majority of people polled by the BBC said they believed the union would be intact in a decade, but not in 25 years.

1. Ten years tops

Once Scotland leaves the UK, NI will start agitating to leave. Also, once Elizabeth dies, I think you will see a lot of countries leave the British Commonwealth.
