If the NI politicians want a referendum, then they can have one. All they need is evidence that a majority of citizens are in favour of putting the question. The UK Gov can't prevent it.

The fishermen are saying they're not happy, but since they don't have enough boats to take up the slack as the EU reduces its catch, they may be complaining to persuade the Gov to provide a few nice new shiny trawlers for them. We shall see.

The United Kingdom exits the European Union's orbit on Thursday, turning its back on a tempestuous 48-year liaison with the European project for an uncertain Brexit future that will shape the fortunes of its people for generations to come.

We will shape our own future. The EU will shape its future. Can't argue with that.
