I listened to the P.M. on the Today program this morning and am far from assured that enough thought has been put in to if peace will be maintained in Northern Ireland. Whatever your thoughts on BREXIT is it worth the risk of Northern Ireland returning to the days of the 1970s.?

Scaremongering...

That's up to the Irish

I don't think so Quickbeam. IRA activity has increased over the last few months already. It is still a powder keg and it won't take much for it to explode again. I sincerely hope I am wrong and you are right.

Maybe a good time to have a “Border Poll”. As the king said of Thomas a Becket : “Who will rid me of this turbulent priest?” Trouble is there would be a likely civil war.

I don't suppose the protestants of Northern Ireland will agree with you on that one.

May and the DUP rejected that over a year ago.

Apparently the DUP have changed their tune from not accepting any different arrangement to mainland UK under any circumstances to they will accept a different arrangement with the help of another payoff...

Of course not - it's just scaremongering.
