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.

What makes this farce even more hilarious (From the Guardian)

The Department for Exiting the European Union had claimed the future of the agencies would be subject to the Brexit negotiations, a claim that caused disbelief in Brussels.

Speaking before the vote on Monday, the EU’s chief negotiator on Brexit, Michel Barnier, said “ardent advocates of Brexit” had contradicted themselves on EU rules.

“Brexit means Brexit,” he said, turning Theresa May’s line back on her. “The same people who argue for setting the UK free also argue that the UK should remain in some EU agencies. But freedom implies responsibility for building new UK administrative capacity,” he told a Brussels conference hosted by the Centre for European Reform.


So if I'm reading this right the Tories reckon that the 1'000 odd people employed in these two EU agencies should continue to be employed in the UK (or at least a bargaining chip) even though the UK wants to leave the organisation??? I have seen some ridiculous stances taken in my time but the UK seem to be basing their strategy on the Boris Johnston book of Negotiating i.e. talk rubbish at the start to get some decent press for the masses, then contradict yourself while the other party basically ignores you until you come to a sensible starting point?

The more specific details that start to get publicized rather than just rhetoric and ideology, the clearer it is that the UK "negotiators" are seriously out of their depth.

I voted to leave the EU as I have no connection to Europe, I don't view myself as European and I believe the ever increasing European population in my region is more harmful to our heritage than a big wall on the border would be.
At the end of the day Europeans don't integrate into our Gaelic society, they are right not to as that's the way people work, the Irish in USA didn't integrate into English American society, the Gaels in Scotland didn't become Picts and lose their Gaelic culture, the Europeans in Australia didn't take up Aboriginal culture.

Where do you think the feckin' Gaels came from?

Modern Antrim but I don't see your point? I am just saying that different cultural groups don't integrate into a society.

Ive read some bullshit on this but this post is right up there with the best of it.

Hard to know where to start on it, so maybe just try to ignore it is for the best.

Well I'd rather be abused on here than have my relatives in 200 years with Slovakian surnames.

Cúchulainn was from Meath, and lived in Armagh. He only stopped in Louth to fight men and ride women.
