The Unicorns are Multiplying

The Northern Ireland Life and Times Survey is often quoted on this site, and just as often its finding are disputed, primarily the figure of only 16% support a United Ireland.

However another survey has also come to light in today’s Newsletter, conducted for Queen’s University, Belfast by Market Research Northern Ireland,  and organised by Dr John Garry, the poll found that 29.3 per cent of people wanted to “remain in the UK with a direct and strong link to Britain” while 53.3 per cent wanted to “remain in the UK and have a strong Assembly and government in Northern Ireland”.

Just 17.4 per cent wanted a united Ireland.

It appears the Unicorns are doing rather well.
