According to surveys, support among Northern Irish people for remaining in the United Kingdom is currently falling by around six percent every year. At the same time, support for Irish reunification is growing in the country.
The reasons for this seem clear: Northern Irish people are frustrated with the political stalemate in Belfast. And there is a growing anger at the British government, which seems to care little about issues outside of London.
The question of whether to break away from the United Kingdom gained enormous momentum with Brexit. This was a catalyst for the debate not only in England, but also in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

And will the government in London be happy if such a fragile union continues to exist?
