because its a different country? 

No, is isn't!

 

Ireland is Ireland is Ireland. There is the north of Ireland and the south of Ireland. The fact that the British government took it by force is neither here nor there.

 

Ireland is Ireland is Ireland.

Not yet it isn't,  but the sooner the better.

Theresa May is now a mouthpiece for the UDP. You pays your money, you gets your choice.

I'm assuming you mean the DUP they may be holding Theresa May the government and the rest of the UK to ransom but they are only able to because Theresa May is so desperate to hang on to power.

 

She has abandoned all sense of duty and what is best for the country to as is usual for the Tory party put self-interest and party first she's not governing she's surrendered the UK to a bunch of bigots who belong in the dark ages.

 

The DUP do not speak for everyone in NI far from it.

 

I know there are some English who don't understand or don't even care that this could lead to the breakup of the UK they are the ones that think that England is the UK and NI Scotland and Wales are just those bits of the UK they would be better off without.

 

If the UK does split a united Ireland would be OK and I think Scotland would make its own way in the world, Wales unfortunately I feel would probably stay with England in some form of union.

I'm one of the ones that does understand and doesn't care. I would be quite happy for England to stand alone.

And I'm quite sure there are plenty of Irish Scots and even Welsh who feel the same way as you do.

Why do you think?

They had a massive army  and seemed to enjoy having a go at the Irish for centuries.

If you are going to colonise countries all over the world, you obviously want a part of next door.

Someone tell me why the Irish government didn't put a border up when the IRA were killing Protestants (and Others) for years during the 1970s-1990s. Funny how it was important then but it is now!

Are you serious?

The British occupy a part of a country and you say the occupied  country should be responsible for erecting borders.

Hopefully you can understand the occupied country's opinion. 

They don't want any border.

Again, you just spout the Brexit propaganda, which is usually seen on the side of buses.

Deadly serious. So answer the question.

I am not saying that Ireland should be responsible. Ireland is saying it will erect a border. Savvy!!.

No, as per usual, the English centric brixters were totally focused on themselves, the other countries of the union be dammed.

 

Those opposing the exit were too busy reminding voters of the 457,385 other things that would be an consequence of brexit, to have time to remind people of this one, though some did. For most, a return to the bad old days of the troubles was unimaginable. 

 

The people of NI voted pretty comprehensively to stay in the EU, something which the brexiters conveniently ignore.

 

The irony of all of this is that the little Englanders have become the caricatures that they like to present of Brussels. Distant, foreign, overbearing and undemocratic. 

The NI vote was comprehensively to stay? OK a 91.2k majority but the lowest turnout in the UK at only 62.7%. The majority of NI - 470,000 couldn't be arzed either way to even go out and vote. Its obvious that the NI rural districts are in subsidy land, sucking at the EU teat, while the urban industrial districts have felt the full effects of the EU folly.

How can little Englanders be both Distant and overbearing, hasn't got to be one or the other?
