Belfast is a poor city.

MW A football team like the current IFA one,using exclusively Unionist symbols and whose fans add the No Surrender lyric to the National Anthem they steal from the English team,would be obsolete in any independent North.Indeed that is the whole point of making the North independent, i.e. Removing the competing allegiances to two different sovereign territories,neither of whom wants nor understands us,and which causes such division and dysfunction,and will always make one community a winner and the other a loser,in their own psyches.

By the way I experienced the unrelenting sectarianism of Windsor Park (after a gap of 20 years) at the recent Linfield V Celtic tie.It was so bad a guy I knew asked the stewards to escort him and his grown up sons out of the stadium early in the second half,and took shameful abuse on the way out when the penny finally dropped with the hordes of the reason for his escort to the exit
Err, you were at a Linfield game and not a Northern Ireland game.  As such, your rather unpleasant experience which you describe above, has hee-haw to do with watching Northern Ireland at the 'National Stadium at Windsor Park'.
NI is not a nation.
It is mar dhea.
Your point being?
Windsor Park is like Ravenhill or Healy Park  A provincial venue.

At the Sinn Fein party conference last week, there was the expected praise for Martin McGuinness.

Yet unionists are upset, that nationalists should honour their dead.

wee link

A couple of weeks ago, the whole country had to stop whilst unionists honoured their fallen heroes. Some people are even shamed into buying poppies.

Is this not the biggest of double standards?
Law and order is a Unionist dog whistle. Hypocrisy is the greatest luxury.

The scoring system is interesting.

Imagine if the Irish immigrants had introduced hurling rather than Halloween into american culture

It would tip the Taig content beyond 50%. Well beyond it. Rossnowlagh is not worth the effort. Unless the Taigs took over and all Unionists were forced to call their first son Dubhaltach.

Should a newspaper be covering news? Have you been drinking before noon Seafoid?
There is an awful lot they don't cover. I see they have another interview with the mother of Rachel O'Reilly on how evil Joe is . FFS

I think areas with 2 communities with a history of bloodshed are more likely to go postal during an economic crisis. Cyprus and Lebanon blew up in the 70's.  When money is flúirseach grievances can be bought off.

Be like Mad Max, proper bloodshed... stealing oil from next door, food parcels (oh wait thats Limerick) rations!! Be a mad exodus to Louth
the Protestants in Louth are rational

These discussions usually end amicably with one side agreeing the other was correct all along.
Thatcher rescues Fearon.
He is a Portadine version of Alan Partridge

Same life expectancy for the south, which had no Brexit

Brexit hasn't the effect yet.
Life expectancy in the south is one year longer for both men and women than in the occupied territories, and is slightly longer for woman than in England.

20 years ago mortality in the South was 6% higher than in the occupied territories

I really am not convinced.  They can only survive in a divided society. Then again my opinion may be tainted by my disdain for them.

In a truly peaceful society I don't see a place for them.
They define themselves in  terms of not being Irish. They need a 21st century identity.  .
