Northern Ireland Border Poll for United Ireland in the EU in response to Brexit

The majority of people in northern ireland voted to remain in Europe during the “brexit” referendum. Northern Ireland’s decision has been discounted. It is our democratic right to decide the future of our Island through a poll on whether to unite the island of Ireland and remain in the EU.
The UK no longer has the best interests of the people of Northern Ireland in its heart. The willingness of the English people to leave the European Union goes against the wishes of the Northern Irish population therefore it is time to reevaluate our relationship and union with the United Kingdom. It is time to turn to our own island and its population, north and south of the border, to plan for a future out of the United Kingdom and in the EU, to forge a new future for the people of Ireland.

Perhaps a resounding response will show our secretary of state and Dublin government that there is an appetite for a change it the territorial status of NI.

    Sorry I couldn’t put my name to a border poll but I’ll hold my nose and ‘play the game’ whenever it presents itself.

    Think I was 346. I don’t believe there is any real support for being in the EU, but it is highlighting the border issue so I am in.

    So, if I understand correctly, this is a call to exchange English rule in Ireland for EU rule in Ireland?

    The time for this sort of thing was before the referendum.
    I don’t recall any parties objecting to the terms of the referendum, and demanding a majority in each constituent part of the UK rather than an overall majority.
    A poll will do little good now. There may be some people who have changed their position on the constitutional issue (and applying for an Irish passport does not on its own imply that) but I would say the number will be small.

    A bit pointless as it excludes the rest of Ireland and at the end of the day the SoS will just say no.

    Also at just over 800 signatures it is hardly making an impact.

    Braveheart Enda all upon his poll did stand

    Border Polls and male glands are all banned.

    I hear there’s an even larger ‘Vatican city’ vote on this one Jude.

    You might even get the ‘Holy Ghost’ to sign!!

    The most important thing in this petition is to mark yourself as resident in UK and give name and postcode. If it got even just 300,000 signatures from ni residents then parliment will have to sit up and take notice. 3,000,000 Irish votes won’t do much cus parliment won’t see that as the will of the ni electorate. Or 50 million American signatures for that matter. Sign twice if it makes you feel better. Once as from Ireland/Irish and once as ni resident with postcode. That’s the one they’ll count in the long run.

        Double negative there. That’s a positive. Someone’s counting something.
        I understand that centuries of being kicked to the ground on this island has developed a deep pessimistic approach to almost everything. Causing all effort to be doomed at the outset.
        Having shaken this mindset graciously inflicted upon us by our nearest neighbour, I’m determined to think more positive, determined and methodically.
        Like a spider in a Rathlin cave demonstrated to Robert the Bruce, don’t give up.
