Yeah the Scots are going to go one of these days, it's been on the cards for a while and they will go. The Norther Irish look like they want to stay in the EU so they can either join Scotland or the Southern Irish. Or go it alone maybe. Like a British dependency but within the EU.
The real answer is going to be a population exchange to sort things out once and for all like the Greeks did with the Turks 100 years ago. Get the million Scots out of Ulster and swap them for the million Irish in Glasgow, full house swaps with cash either way depending on house values. Problem solved, a nice clean way of sorting out a united Ireland and a Scotland in the EU and independent. Problem solved.
Isn't the name for that ethnic cleansing? Also there really isn't anything like a million Irish in Glasgow.

You tried that before and it didn't work out to well. Took us 300 years to get back to a peaceful country, although still partitioned.
Try googling : The Plantation of Ulster. Learn your own bloody history for a change.
