YouGov survey suggests a heavy price is already being paid for DUP standing in the way of England's desire to leave the EU
"We need to be honest, folks," [Sinn Fein's Foyle MP, Elisha McCallion] said. "They (Britons) don't care about Ireland. They don't care about nationalists, they don't care about unionists and they don't care about anyone in between. They only care about England."
Just 34% of Labour supporters and 27% of Liberal Democrats said they wanted Northern Ireland to stay in the UK. The equivalent figure for Tories was 49% - still worryingly low from the self-styled "Conservative and Unionist Party", but way ahead of other potential candidates for government.
Northern Ireland is suffering the collateral damage from this experiment in devolution. Unionists have to decide whether thwarting Brexit will slow down that process, or dangerously accelerate it. ... Unionists may be furious with Boris [cutting them loose to DEVOLVE], but can what they ultimately want most survive without him?
