      or do you think a referendum where the result is for NI to stay in the UK is going to do anything other cause a (un)civil war?
      Sorry, what I meant to say, and got sidetracked, was that the NI Devolution settlement allows for such a referendum to take place without further recourse to Westminster. They are restricted to only holding such a referendum once in a generation, qualified in the settlement as being 'no more than once in seven years'. Seriously.....
      When freedom comes along, don't PISH in the water supply.....

        Ah so there is a relevant written precendent for defining how long a generation is for the purposes of holding such referendums

          There was an interesting prog on r4 last week.
          They seemed to think that the NI secretary, a cabinet minister, needs to agree to it. But not parliament nor the PM.
          In reality I think it will need the PM though as the cabinet is full of loyal toadies.

            Not agreeing will be viewed by Biden and EU as breach of the agreement.

              "The agreement was "not working" and NI businesses and families were suffering too much "disruption and interference". "
