For what it's worth, opinion poll published just yesterday:

If there were a 'border poll' tomorrow, how would you vote?
- For Northern Ireland to leave the UK and join the Republic of Ireland: 51%
- For Northern Ireland to stay in the UK: 49%
Of course, all the usual qualifications: It's only a poll, there isn't actually going to be a border poll tomorrow, margin of error, these figures exlcude 'don;'t knows' and 'wouldn't votes', yadda yadda yadda.

Still, interesting. It may suggest that a demographic and political trend which has been observed for some time is, or may be, approaching a tipping point.

Old Irish joke: "If only we were heathen so we could all live together like good Christians!"
