The British did not start colonising Ireland,  but uniquely among the places mentioned they still continue to do it.

And comments about Germany are immature.

As a small country we will always be under various spheres of influence. But there is no comparison between that and British Rule over the centuries.

Giraldus Cambrensis worked for the Daily Mail during the middle Ages

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Horse_sacrifice
There is in a northern and remote part of Ulster, among the Kenelcunil, a certain tribe which is wont to install a king over itself by an excessively savage and abominable ritual. In the presence of all the people of this land in one place, a white mare is brought into their midst. Thereupon he who is to be elevated, not to a prince but to a beast, not to a king but to an outlaw, steps forward in beastly fashion and exhibits his bestiality. Right thereafter the mare is killed and boiled piecemeal in water, and in the same water a bath is prepared for him. He gets into the bath and eats of the flesh that is brought to him, with his people standing around and sharing it with him. He also imbibes the broth in which he is bathed, not from any vessel, nor with his hand, but only with his mouth. When this is done right according to such unrighteous ritual, his rule and sovereignty are consecrated.

New survey out sez majority of Brits do not want to lose money in the Brexit. That sets the cat among the Tories . The Euros must be wondering what is happening

Starting to get messy
NI is very fragile
A quote on the Supreme court last week. Would not have been necessary if Brexit had been planned.  I think it's what the Germans call a Schnappsidee. A drinking idea.

Brexit will hammer UK incomes. Maybe sense will prevail..

I think Seafoid wrote this report

What a load of scaremongering.
Sterling has already been hammered. Leaving may be a good idea but it needs to be delivered by a government with a majority and a programme at least cost. And the Tories are clueless instead.

This could go in a half a dozen threads at the minute!

https://lucidtalk.co.uk/news/219-lt-december-2016-ni-wide-tracker-poll

Some interesting results...               

Indeed, with support for  Gay marriage at a high level among nationalists and with a majority generally and with support for a United Ireland at 44% in the 6 counties, then perhaps Tony Fearon is not quite in tune with the majority.
Brexit will definitely shake things up and it won't be quite as invisible as some people think.

The City is talking about 232K jobs that may be lost under a hard Brexit.
That would have an impact on the deficit, as will the collapse in sterling.
The UK may end up in a bailout if Brexit goes ahead
