The majority of them do. The majority of unionist politicians do. But there is a powerful minority of voters that believe that they are as British as Finchley ( which they are) and that the people of Finchley care a jot about them (which they don't)

Finchley is actually in Britain, its people are intrinsically British and so the people in NI are not British in that way, however much they try to convince themselves.

Correct the north of Ireland is not Part of GB

NI is not in GB. Nobody said it was. It is however in the U.K. If your from the UK, entitled to a Uk passport and want to call yourself British it would be hard to argue that your not

Front of a U K passport says Britain and Northern Ireland so no one over here is as British as Finchley
As for the U K bit once the Brexit deals are implemented the UK is doomed but for the time being your right. ( ok honey)
The irony is given the subject at hand, Wales and Scotland have languages acts and they are British. We have dual citizenship and we canít have an Irish act. Itís Crazy

You do know that British doesn't mean from Great Britain?

Yeah one is inclusive of Wales and England only but anyone that highlights that is nitpicking in the context of most conservation
I also know that the the Union Jack can be flown upside down
I always check them when passing areas they are flown
But you know itís doesnt really matter i get what there trying to say
Not much point in getting anal about the whole thing is there

During that belated confession you do realise you were still typing??

Finchley? We did a refurb on a house in Finchley. More Star of Davids then Union Jacks.
But the grub they laid on was gorgeous.

They could have taken it out, removed petition of concern and the same sex marriage thing would go through.

No petition of concern and dup struggle too which i am sure they know.

Gregory let off lightly on radio 6 counties this evening when he said there was no provisional agreement to discuss over the weekend and then when asked confessed he hadn't been involved in the negotiations for two weeks.....
He also got away when accusing the Shinners for bringing the institutions down but he should have been asked why the DUP had the gift of getting them back up this week but rejected the proposal so they weren't so concerned about health, education and infrastructure either..

It Seems going by the press an agreement was in place with consent from both parties. What happened or who pulled rank. It was strange May flew from London with an outcome like that.

I wouldn't be surprised if Mrs May went over here to talk more about Brexit and border issues with Varadkar with the talks between SF & DUP as a convenient cover.

Snarlene talking to RTE again. Must be a policy so that the interview will be guaranteed  to be shown down south. Who does that suit.

DUP obviously feel an election would serve them better as SF would probably not be able to repeat such a successful campaign straight off the bat. Theyíre in perfect position to mop up unionist concerns about the strength of the nationalist vote and tbh unionist paranoia hasnít been at such a peak for 20 years Iíd say. This is mainly due to antagonism around brexit and the border amongst other issues.

Theyíre judging that a fresh election would probably strengthen their seat count and the only other alternative to that is Westminster in which they now hold sway would take over the reins in NI. They may be cnuts but theyíre not stupid.
