In light of a YouGov poll for LBC, a popular national radio station in the United Kingdom, indicating that a majority of Brexit voters would accept the loss of the UK’s legacy colony in the north-east of Ireland if it made it easier for Britain to successfully leave the European Union, the response by the Democratic Unionist Party has been essentially this:
OBSERVER: Do you accept that a majority in the UK who voted for Brexit favour the North of Ireland staying in the EU so that the UK can successfully leave the EU?
DUP: No, because a majority in Northern Ireland favour its continued membership of the UK, therefore the majority in the UK as a whole is of no significance.
OBSERVER: Do you accept that a majority in the North of Ireland voted against Brexit and therefore the North of Ireland should stay in the EU?
DUP: No, because a majority in the UK as a whole voted to leave the EU and therefore the majority in Northern Ireland is of no significance.
With logic like this, how can Brexit possibly fail?
