Part and Parcel

I mean this as a serious question. In what precise way is Northern Ireland still part of the United Kingdom?

For a generation, it has been very comprehensively devolved, and the United Kingdom has in any case been obliged by treaty to transfer it to another state under certain circumstances.

And now, this. At what point does the phrase "part of the United Kingdom" become meaningless?
