'@Nisse'_Hult Spain seems stranger, but regardless the prevailing unionists (or whatever the term is) don't want ANY political ammunition to be provided to the separatists.

Northern Ireland...well it *doesn't* want to join the RoI. Not strongly enough for it to be a politically healthy decision anyway ( ). But public opinion seems fairly certain a hard border would start up the violence again.

And even if things do shake out okay, it was a risk that didn't need to be taken and gained the UK nothing (and cost her greatly). But it let angry bigots feel good about themselves and helped the Russian Kleptocracy continue it's hegemonic expansionism, so it was a win for fascists the world over.
