An interesting snippet regarding Brexit and the possibility of Irish reunification.
Official figures explain that the annual net cost to the UK being in the European Union is £8.1 billion. Whereas the size of the annual subvention to Northern Ireland is a whopping £9.2 billion. It costs more for Northern Ireland to be within the UK than for the UK to be in the EU
Of course for any vote on unification to occur the republic must give consent.(and be prepared to dig deep in their pockets) Typical of the media to only give a partial story.

Really best ignored in fact. He only pops up to insult flame and troll.
Just look at his recent contributions
