You claim that Northern Ireland *doesn't* want to join the republic - and then link to an article talking about an opinion poll showing that they actually do?

Obviously no one would be pressing the issue for a rejunification with that slim a margin though - that would be a recipe for disaster as you rightly say.

But if Brexit turns out to be as economically bad for Northern Ireland as virtually every expert has predicted, opinions might obviously change.

There is also the demographic factor.
The ones most opposing rejunification are the oldest - and they are dying off.
The most in favour are the youngest - and there are more of them being made every day.
