Scotland is already asking for another independence referendum:

LONDON (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Boris Johnson needs to “focus on reality” and recognize that the Scottish National Party (SNP) has been given a mandate for a second independence referendum, Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said on Saturday.

The SNP won 48 of Scotland’s 59 seats in the UK parliament in Thursday’s national election, prompting Sturgeon to step up her demands for another independence referendum.

Under the terms of the Brexit deal, Northern Ireland remains a de facto member of the EU, but has no say n EU politics. I imagine that strengths the case for reunification, which has gained popularity in recent years.
