Re: Brexit too hot a subject for discussion now ?

How hard is it to have an ancestor born in Ireland, anymore than it would be to have one born in Timbuctu or Swaziland?

Voting in such a way knowing that it would have a massive effect on peeple's lives, knowing it would not affect yours as you had a way of totally avoiding said effects, just cannot be fair .
I canít resist....

Pretty much everyone born in NI is entitled to an Irish passport. The post offices in NI even carry the application forms. And the Irish government will accept the signature of an PM as the witness, just as if they were a member of the Irish parliament. At this stage almost all DUP PMs have admitted to signing such applications and some have even advised unionist voters to apply for passports just in case...

On top of this they have a guarantee from the EU that on a reunion of Ireland they would be automatically admitted to the EU. So they very crowd propping up the Conservatives and making all the demands, have an out option in the back pocket should it all go pear shaped.
