Liverpool University Poll On Irish Re-unification

This is the poll, commissioned and analysed by academics at Liverpool University, that Sinn Fein and most of the media are strenuously ignoring, possibly because it shows a clear majority of people in Northern Ireland opting to stay within the UK in the event of a Border poll.

(Thanks to DR for posting it on Facebook)

That part of the survey conflicts rather sharply with the more popular narrative, fueled by unfounded  predictions of the effects of Brexit (remember the customs posts on the Border which would reignite the Troubles?) and peddled by assorted instant experts in media land, each feeding off the others’ misunderstood wisdoms.

You can locate the survey here. The relevant section is Chapter Five.
