What if Alex Kane is right about a border poll?


Writing about the UUP conference, Alex Kane (Oct 26) concluded, ‘On a really, really good day, the UUP could reach 23 seats: but the odds still favour the DUP.’

It conjured up a vision of the Titanic. Ahead lies a border poll.

Alex recently stated it could happen sooner than we think. Then what?

Mike Nesbitt mentioned ‘the elephant in the room’. But has he thought about the potential disaster looming on the horizon – the (50-50) possibility of unionists being outvoted in a border poll?
