'Border poll deniers" were cited by a prominent political figure yesterday, who suggested a referendum on Irish unity was inevitable and preparations should be made to argue one's case. Was it Micheál Martin, leader of Fianna Fáil - 'the Republican Party'? Not a chance of that in 2020's topsy-turvy world.

No, it was Peter Robinson, former DUP leader and first minister at Stormont.
