Hes just a jealous west brit

Like it or not if you are born in the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland you are a subject of Elizabeth the Second whereas in the Republic you would be a citizen.

Don't be too upset. You are in good company

No you're not.  Technically I'm both a British and Irish citizen, though in my day to day life I choose to identify as Irish.  Ironically one of the qualifications to be one of the few "British subjects" still around is to be born in the 26 counties before 1949, so your Da or Granda might be a British subject, but very few others are.  The "subject" designation was done away with in 1983 and cannot be passed on.

I've that clown on ignore but I'm glad that, on this occasion, the quote function allowed me to see him being made a fool of yet again.   ;D

Reminded me of Kurt Russell owning Billy Bob in the saloon scene in Tombstone. Very satisying  :D

Pure lunacy but that was in hindsight, at the time they were led to believe different, bit like Brexit!

You're the only one round here who believes different re brexit

Show me a post where I've said Brexit is a good thing? other than a wind up I've not stated anything other than, its done lets see if it happens and when it does will it be as bad as the experts say... my view is its been bad for years wages havent went up and thats not down to Brexit, its been like that for years before the vote

That post mentions 'pure lunacy', you compare it to Brexit. That's in fitting with most peoples views, but not yours.

Again, show me where I've said Brexit is a good thing, Ive already stated that we havent been down this road before so there is nothing to comapre it with.. my view has always been remain, I voted for it along with the majority of the rest of NI but the doom merchants on here have compared it with the 1800's..

My grandfathers uncles died in WW1, I don't wear a poppy, I would be too stingy to buy one even if I did want to.
The distant cousins in South USA loved to hear of their relatives dying in WW1 when I told them. They didn't seem to care about the old IRA fellow.

I think Cadbury's Creme Eggs should be available all year round.

Northern and Republic to play friendly in November.

Surely a chance to don the Poppy shirts and get booing Mclean.

NI fans shouldn't be allowed in the Aviva. They'll wreck the place.
