Confused malcontents swilling Chardonnay while awaiting the Zombie Apocalypse.
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.

Boris, on the other hand was born in the US and his mother's side of the family were Turkish and German and of course, one of his grandmothers was French.
I believe Boris renounced all claim to US citizenship some time ago and doubt if the Turkish fascist Gov would welcome him after his criticisms of Erdogan.
