Union at risk of loss of fourth Irish Province

How dysfunctional does the Union of the British have to become before action is taken meaningfully to reform it?

Not content with the loss of three Irish Provinces it seems to be doing its best to lose the fourth, and if it does what then for those of the Province and elsewhere who hold the Union in such regard that to them the prospect of a reunification of Ireland without a Union of some sort between and within the islands would be intolerable?

If the Europeans of the mainland can devise a Union with which 27 can be more or less content why can’t the Europeans of the islands offshore for four?

Isn’t it simply that in any Union of the British the Irish, and increasingly the Scots and the Welsh, will not be governed by the English?
