no-one born on the island of Ireland is british. Fact.


  you see that is where you go wrong. At the very beginning. The word for what in your head is UKish is British. This is not a difficult concept and it would be embarrassing for you if you were to make this mistake again and worrying for those who care about you

36mins 20sec if you want to hear it from the mouth of a British subject. Way and lie down you quisling.
Just because you don't live on the island of Great Britain, doesn't mean that you cannot be British.  Does that mean that folk on Aran Island are not Irish?

You do realise he was just repeating your argument back to you?

The internet equivalent of chicken scratch, what he/she said is indecipherable, literally.

I suppose you’re going a post now that proves Robert Fisk cannot be wrong?
Anyway thanks for the quisling jibe. It proves all by suspicions

I'm glad you agree with me.

However, there remains an enormous appetite in Northern Ireland for symbolic acts of rapprochement. There have been three such moments since Stormont collapsed: Ian Paisley jnr thanking Martin McGuinness for his leadership and friendship to the Paisley family; Foster and O’Neill shaking hands at McGuinness’s funeral; and DUP and Sinn Féin former ministers Edwin Poots and John O’Dowd speaking of the need for reconciliation, after Sinn Féin’s Barry McElduff was accused of mocking the Kingsmill massacre. All provoked an outpouring of public emotion. Such acts might not sway a single vote for Sinn Féin and the DUP but they demonstrate the desire for agreement amid the fog of anger, making agreement easier to reach.
Meeting the pope could have been another such a moment, in large part because it is the only unionist gesture comparable to McGuinness’s 2012 handshake with the Queen. The sense among republicans in particular that this has never been reciprocated, and that McGuinness had thus been made to look a fool, was no small matter in Stormont’s collapse – it was voiced strongly to the Sinn Féin leadership by party members.
Sure it's only the league

And not just party members, many ordinary nationalists are flabbergasted by the total lack of respect emanating from Foster and the DUP the supposed leaders of Unionism.

I would think that when Paisely and McGuinness were in charge there would have been some catholic voters in main unionist areas that would have voted DUP to keep that successfull power sharing partnership going, rather having the UUP in.. since that break up I doubt very mucg that any Nationalist or catholic would vote DUP ever again
Anything I post is not the view of the County Board!! Nobody died in the making of this post ;-)

Both spot on.  It always amazes me how a lot of commentators, journos and the "why don't they all just get back to work" brigade seem to ignore this point.

Because there is a spurious equality "one is as bad as the other" put forward all the time.

I still find it galling that the local media still believe that the reason there's no Assembly is purely down to Sinn Feins intransigence surrounding the ILA.
Have they not been commentating on the RHI Inquiry which going by what has been brought out in the open is at best a huge clusterfuck of incompetence and at worst a fraudulent attempt to suck as much money out of Whitehall (initially) as possible and lining mates pockets at will.

I think Arlene stepping down was quite mild of Martin back then as this Inquiry is proving.
