The leader of Sinn Fein has told Boris Johnson it would be unthinkable if a border poll on Irish unity doesn't take place after Brexit.
Mary Lou McDonald is among the party leaders in the North who've been meeting the British Prime Minister this morning.
If the British prime minister is intent on a crash out Brexit there way out of this for Ireland is to allow the people of Ireland to decide on their own future under the provisions of the GFA - @MaryLouMcDonald pic.twitter.com/BFdnrnMHei

Boris Johnson says the UK government is committed to upholding the Good Friday Agreement.
But Deputy McDonald says his comments on Brexit - keeping the option of no deal on the table - have been damaging and dangerous.
She also believes Britain's departure from the EU will raise the question of unity:
"We stated to him very clearly that Brexit in any event, but certainly a disorderly Brexit, reps a dramatic change of circumstances on this Island.
"It would be unthinkable in those circumstances that people would not be given the opportunity to decide on our future together".
