Sanity by the public!

Overall the survey indicates that there is huge scope for some form of popular compromise, without forcing another crisis by either hastily downing Stormont or prematurely calling Article 16.

Recently democracy is held hostage by the extremes and is not functioning in leading.  See the US and Western Europe. Authoritarian states overall are run by extremists. In both the gap of confidence (distrust) with the electorate is steadily increasing. Always an uprising or revolution around the corner, government oppression measures are in place.

Turns out Nationalist voters are far less hung up about living on the UK than the politicians they vote for, possibly because they live in a world where unionist voters are their friends/neighbours/workmates.

It's clear politicians are center whether to feed extremism, choice for war or peace. Right now the voter won't have none of it.
