THE IRISH BORDER QUESTION: CAN THE UNION SURVIVE?

In this debate, filmed by WORLDwrite volunteers at the Battle of Ideas festival at Church House, Westminster, a highly engaging panel and thoughtful audience share their perspectives on the Union, whether it can or should survive.
Some argue that the impact of Brexit and the Protocol disguise deeper problems with the Union. Irish political allegiances seem in turmoil and the whole question of the North-South border is back on the agenda. Do these developments make a united Ireland inevitable in the long term? A timely, must-watch debate on the 100th anniversary of partition. 
The speakers are: Mick Fealty – founding editor, Slugger O’Toole; Andrée Murphy – columnist; Belfast Media Group and Belfast Telegraph board member, Ireland’s Future Peter Ramsay – professor of law, London School of Economics and Political Science; author, The Insecurity State; founding signatory, The Full Brexit Gawain Towler – consultant; former director of communications, Brexit Party.
The chair is Kevin Rooney co-author of Who’s Afraid Of The Easter Rising? 1916-2016, and editor of the Britain-based website www.irishborderpoll.com which campaigns for a border poll and Irish unity.
