Northern Ireland survey shows rise in remain up by ten percent since referendum

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.
