A recent survey conducted by Queens University in Belfast has indicated that support for Northern Ireland remaining in the European Union is up 10% from the 56% of the referendum result in 2016. This coincides with a united call by four Northern Ireland parties – Sinn Féin, the SDLP, Alliance and the Green party – to state that Northern Ireland should stay in the EU’s single market and customs union.
In a statement released on Monday the 22nd, the four parties have again called for no hard border on the island of Ireland, or between the two islands of Ireland and Britain.
All four parties campaigned to remain the EU referendum in 2016.
With the Queens University survey showing a clear rise in the call to remain, the people of Northern Ireland seem to sending a message to Theresa May’s government calling for clarity and decisions regards the border problem.
It may be still the case that the Irish question could be the straw that breaks the Brexit back.
