Brexit is damaging support for the British union in both Scotland and Northern Ireland, a new poll has revealed.
Almost half of Scottish voters - 47 percent - said they would now vote for independence if the UK leaves the European Union. Only 43 percent said they would vote for Scotland to remain part of Britain after Brexit.
The latest Deltapoll findings also showed that Brexit is also harming support for the union in Northern Ireland.
A majority of voters in the country- 52 percent - would back a united Ireland outside of the UK if Brexit goes ahead. Only 39 percent would vote to remain part of UK.
The same survey, commissioned by the Best for Britain and Our Future Our Choice campaign groups, pointed to even stronger opposition to the creation of a so-called “hard border” across Ireland after Brexit.
It found 56 percent of people in Northern Ireland would be willing to vote for a united Ireland if the UK left the EU and a hard border were set up.

I'm more concerned that Michael Barnier isn't doing what he's told and delivering us the Brexit plan that best suits us at the EU's expense.
This is like Mexico refusing to pay for a wall.
I don't know what the world's coming to when people refuse to agree to an economically crippling provision with absolutely no reciprocal benefit.
What are we meant to do now - just put up with having no light at the end of our economic decline?
We should get Farage & Johnson on the case, tell them they'll get an extra 350m a week to spend on their health service.

The good news keeps on coming. England subsidises the other three so without them we may even be able to reduce taxation.

People need to be in charge of their own destiny or everything will just end in conflict.
History teaches us this.
The problem is people have short memories.
Brexit is the catalyst for change that was so needed.

So that artificial entity, the UK, wasn't breaking up before the EU referendum. Ireland fought for centuries not to be a British colony and finally broke away in 1921. Scotland and Wales have healthy independence movements, Cornwall less so. But, of course, the EUincorns will blame Brexit for everything.
