1916-2016, is 16% likely to become 51% in less than 5 years?

The most recent results of the Northern Ireland Life and Times Survey are out, showing once again support for a United Ireland at less than one in six people with almost three out of four wishing to stay within the Union, all the facts and figures of the survey are shown on their website, and if you are going to state the survey is in anyway unbalanced please provide evidence.

Note. on another site the discrepancy between the party “support” and actual votes received was used as an indicator of its unreliability, will include both the survey and council results here for a simple comparison DUP 18-27, SF 11-25, UUP 16-15, SDLP 17-15, AP 10-7, Other 3-10,  the “non supporters” were 21%.

I’m a progressive traditionalist, liberal conservative, left wing captialist, free thinking fundamentalist, am too fond of playing devils advocate for my own good, and a fondness for the occasional shock comment, put all that together with a tendancy to drop in the odd risky one-liner(occasionally even funny ones) would lead me to issue the appeal not to take what I say too seriously.
