significance of 60% of unionists

For several years I've been trying to get a bead on the five parties' membership (absolute numbers) by periodically trawling parties' web site PR. Percentages are meaningless if absolute number is unknown; voter registration by party appears unknown as is the custom throughout UK. The occasional caucus headcount is irrelevant. I've concluded (1) no number is published (2) imputing membership from electoral outcome facilitates hoary propaganda by minority factions (3) political "mandate" is more fluid than reported, YoY.
This electoral season surely is more ripe for ahh organizational hygiene than ever, precisely because Westminister and EU have ahh disintermediated monopolistic practices in colony. The question is not exit, but how to exit and who in Stormont will mete the proceeds.
What I can't fathom is why you would renounce the wisdom of a "special" customs territory which you had anticipated, lo these many years.
