Serhat TUNAR -TDO- While Britain is short on leaving the European Union, Northern Ireland and Scotland are looking for ways to stay in the European Union. Demands for an independence referendum have been reintroduced in these two regions that are part of Britain.
Martina Anderson, a Northern Irish member of the European Parliament, called for a referendum to be held as soon as possible for the reunification of Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.
Anderson, of the Sinn Féin party, which opposes British rule in Northern Ireland, argued that a referendum was inevitable, noting that Northern Irish voters did not approve of leaving the European Union in the Brexit referendum held in Britain in 2016, but that leaving took place despite it.
Noting that Northern Ireland would gradually fall out of European Union rules and regulations in certain areas after Brexit, Anderson said: "the further this separation goes, the harder it will be to integrate the north into the European Union after reunification with Ireland."
Northern Irish voters voted to remain in the European Union by 55 per cent in the Brexit referendum in 2016.
