It be amazing, I could be more Irish.. oh wait
You could vote in Referenda without having to move to the 26 ;)
You wouldn't have Rees Mogg (has to be a comedy show caricature surely?)deciding you're future.

Ah, I could move to Roscommon, that be fun

I think the reluctance of the ifa, unionist leaders etc to do anything inclusive leads to this perception that the north is a bastion of Britishness and unionism. Thatís ideally what they want. And last nights match to an outsider, would probably draw the same conclusion. North - Protestant/British. South - catholic/Irish. And every northerner hates southerners and vice versa.

Nothing Irish, catholic, cultural etc do they want here. Compromising with ILA, GAA, flags, anthems etc dilutes their version of Norn Iron. In a way, itís perfectly understandable they think that way. I mean, Norn Iron was created as a ring fenced, hotbed of Protestantism/unionism that unionists were given in the 20ís and allowed to freely discriminate, trample on and intimidate catholics at will.

It was a Protestant state for a Protestant people, and any compromise with catholics on certain issues would lead to the states foundation collapsing around them.
And that's why its a failed state. almost 50% of its population does not give allegiance to the state in which they live.

Not in unionismís eyes, itís not. Itís doing what it said on the tin. And they will do everything they can to keep it that way ie. a Protestant state for a Protestant people, within the uk - as witnessed with the DUP in recent days.

Do you feel you live in a Protestant state for Protestant people?

Any neutral looking in on this game last night obviously only had one channel working..

some balloon on here said no self respecting catholic should play for N.I.. for all those catholics that played for N.I shame on you? Get a grip.
No use repeating what you remember about what one balloon once wrote, as if  that represented some body of opinion on here.

Iíll repeat what I want, and at no point in my post did I say it represents everyone on here. I said some balloon . Now keep your knickers on
Yes you can repeat any rubbish you want.
But keep your knickers on, I said some body of opinion not everybody. Read the post before hitting the keyboard.
Nordie oversensitive  balloon mentality  ;D

Ah Iím sensitive because Iím a nordie! More daft sweeping statements. Brilliant
Eh no,  you're evidently oversensitive and you are a nordie.  And now with questionable balloon content as you persist in foolish behavior.

Ok, cause you say so itís true! Laughable

Corbyn is part of the reason the Country is in a mess. . . a load of left wing headbangers joined the Labour Party for 50p now there's no way they can force him out even though he's never going to appeal to the middle ground Labour need to win back Parliament.

Along with that he's a f**king Brexiteer so f**k him anyway. The UK is in severe bother but I actually think there is a way out of this if May sticks to her guns!!

Yep Irish nationalists should stay well clear of Corbyn. Not to be trusted

Nationalism is fine without Corbyn the border poll will be soon enough... the problem will be the Irish taking us on not the Brits casting us aside!!

You hit the nail on the head screenexile, if there was a vote in the 26 counties next week for Irish unity, I honestly think as low as 35/40% would be in favour.

i think it would be more like 55% in favour,  but it would be out of patriotism or a sense of nationalism and finality to the whole partition issue. it certainly wouldn't be down to personal gain because we would almost certainly be worse off.

We?

Irelands Call isn't good enough for northern protestants either. They don't sing it at the rugby.

I know plenty of northern prods that sing it. More bullshit but carry on

Settler communities are different to normal societies because there is no historical continuity and identity has to be invented in a room somewhere from elements that someone has to define. It has to be hard coded.
Over time identity changes. Eg in the South there was a shift from strongly catholic to more liberal on gay issues. Societies will debate this stuff and then change. Or they won't.  But it won't lead to existential insecurity.   
But for unionists the hard coding of identity is very hard to change. Take out Queen and Somme and there isn't much left and then what would you replace it with ?
Unionist identity is very fragile.

Settlers tend to be easier to scare the shite out of because they know unconsciously that their people  were outsiders who came in by force. They are easier to manipulate
The next few months will be hard for GB but very hard for Unionists in NI.

That's a top quality post.

What about the ones that took the soup Seafoid? Do they feel the same as the Ďsettlersí ?

Protestant Farmers to a man voted leave. They hate the "red tape" that the EU enforces in return for subsidies. They think leaving the EU will remove this. Boy are they in for a shock.

BBC NI journalist Conor MacAuley reporting on twitter that the Ulster Farmers Union has cautiously welcomed the deal, saying it would like further clarification but believes the document now on the table "would secure NI's existing agricultural trading relationships". 
Doesn't stack up with the view above.

UFU asked for a remain vote. Donít get the point. Are you suggesting that farmers would follow what the UFU campaigned for? Protestant farmers overwhelmingly voted leave.

To a man!
