PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! "Feile an Phobail opened with a series of lectures, including a frank discussion about the impact of Brexit on the future of Northern Ireland. Mary Murphy, a senior lecturer in politics at the University of Cork and Jonathan Evershed, a Newman Fellow in constitutional futures at University College Dublin, joint authored the book A Troubled Constitutional Future.At St Mary’s University College in west Belfast, the two academics discussed the full Brexit journey.Ms Murphy said: “The very decision to hold a referendum was a decision that came on the back of 40 years of British membership of the EU, which had been a very fraught relationship.“There had been 40 years of Euroscepticism which was very unlike any other member state.“David Cameron decided to hold a referendum to try and lance that boil within his own political party, to try and once and for all rid the Conservative Party of that fraught conversation that was causing such a wedge and a divide.”Mr Evershed said: “The critical thing for me around that time is that there was precisely zero thought given in UK Government as to what would happen if different parts of the United Kingdom voted in different ways, which is exactly what happened in Scotland and here in the North of Ireland.

.”There is a chapter in the academics’ book dedicated to the role of the middle ground in the Brexit debate and in the constitutional future of Northern Ireland.Mr Evershed added: “There is no doubt that Brexit has accelerated the tempo of the conversation, it remains the case that a majority consistently emerges in favour of the North of Ireland remaining in the United Kingdom for now, albeit there is fluctuation. But that trend of people who support reunification is there and is increasing.“We talk in the book about this, the critical constituency are the neithers or the others, those whose politics is not determined primarily by their preference on the constitutional question.”Ms Murphy added: “They are potentially the king makers in this debate and around any future border poll and the thing is they don’t want to be.”" , "isAccessibleForFree": "False", "hasPart": { "@type": "WebPageElement", "isAccessibleForFree": "False","cssSelector": "#flip-pay"} }
