      (Irish News) (skip)

      A survey carried out late last month on behalf of the New Statesman found 34 per cent of respondents felt no connection to the north’s population, while 27 per cent felt only a little connected.

      Just 10 per cent of those surveyed said they felt very connected, with 29 per cent having a moderate connection.

      The New Statesman’s coverage of the poll said the results provided some context for the “lack of uproar among the British public at Boris Johnson’s decision to put a trade border down the Irish Sea”.

      “The polling also reflects a potential complacency in the governing party over what the Irish Sea border means for the integrity of the union,” the article said, adding that a survey of Conservative Party members published in 2019 found they were willing to sacrifice Northern Ireland’s position in the United Kingdom to achieve Brexit.

      When have “connections” ever stopped the British from meddling someplace far from their soggy island?

      Corporate America consists of totalitarian entities laser-focused on short-term greed.

        Northern Ireland. Republic of Ireland. Protestant, Catholic, who cares anymore? They’re done.

        Best bet for Northern Ireland is to just join the Republic and get back into the EU. If the Loyalists don’t like it, they can try their luck in England or Scotland.
