When the UK leaves the EU, will Northern Ireland leave aswell?
- 1 year agoFavourite answer
Given that Northern Ireland is part of the UK, of course.
Now whether anyone will try to enforce any border controls on that border who knows, but I'm sure the taxmen will take notice.

Initially, Northern Ireland won’t have a choice except to leave with the UK.
BUT as the reality of Brexit begins to take its toll on business, employment, civil unrest and countless other unforeseen consequences, don’t be surprised if the next order of business will be a referendum for the full unification of Ireland.
That will be swiftly followed by another Scottish referendum and possibly a welsh one too.
Are the British people ready to play fast and loose with the entire structure of the United Kingdom, just because we are wedded to the outcome of a dishonest referendum from 2016?

They have to being a part of the United kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.
B Ut maybe a hard border won't be needed.

What does the UK stand for? The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.
So If the UK leaves, then Northern Ireland, Leamington Spa, Hampstead Heath, Ottery St. Mary etc etc and the rest of us - have all left together.

Lots of them voted to stay but as part of the UK lost the overwhelming vote to leave. Those who voted to stay in Scotland make similar arguments.

Well it's not yet entirely clear what's going to happen, though I have to point out that Northern Ireland is PART of the UK; it's not some separate country. If the UK goes, Northern Ireland goes.
The issue concerns the border with the Republic of Ireland, which IS a separate country and is NOT leaving the EU. Many people don't want the open, fluid border between the two Irelands and that has existed to date to close, because the consequences could be quite serious. A real solution to that problem hasn't yet met the approval of the EU and both Remainers and Brexiteers.

No they won't leave, the brexit will be of great advantage to them, financially.
