Nationalism is what drove the Irish to insist on no border on the island
No it did not. Are you forgetting the Armenians Azerbaijan war?
“The UK, as of now, plans to leave the EU, with or without a deal, on October 31. Halloween.”
“All Hallows Eve” — the last hurrah of evil before “All Saints Day”; the coming of the Holy Ones. How fitting.
I support the UK but will say that the only right thing to do with Northern Ireland is to give it back to the Irish.
The Muslims will take over, eventually, so it's a moot point.
Including the New Irish?
They sang the socialist song 'The Red Flags'
Britain has been taken over much more often.
The Stonehenge builders were not Celts. The Celts who were called Britons and are ancestors of today’s Welsh came around 500 BC
The Roman’s invaded and settled around 44 AD
The Saxons, Jutes and Angles came in the fifth century ad.
At the same time the Scotti, a tribe from Ireland invaded what is now Scotland and set up shop.
Then in the 8th, 9th centuries you had the Danes coming and Danelaw, a part of the Danish Emoire under Canute.
The in 1066 you have the Frenchish speaking Norman’s coming a d that heralded 250 years of domination by French speakers from the Norman dynasty to the Angevin.
That great English king, Richard the Lionheart was born in Francem visited Englamd for only three months of his life and spoke no Englisch.
After that, the Norman batons invited the Fren h prince to come rule them instead of John but that failed.
Then in 1688 basically the Dutch invaded and the Dutch King William of Orange became the king of England.
Before that you had of course the Tudora who were Welsh, the Stuart’s who were Scottish.
And then in the 170ps you had the German takeover with the house of Hanover coming to power. George I spoke no English at all.
Wo this myth of 1000 years is, well a myth
And the Muslims are nearly all not through the eu but imported from Pakistan, Nigeria etc ie the Brits invited them in
Why do you say Ireland is ruling Britain?
Neither is actin undemocratic. Stop playing Democrat word games.
30% of northern Irish people don’t want to be part of the Republic
“30% of northern Irish people dont want to be part of the Republic”
Then they can leave.
I've said this before. It's either possible or likely that Will and Kate will be the last British monarchs. Even that's in doubt if things get too crazy.
I’m wondering how many truly British people there are. Is it an irreversibly dying ethnic group?
just because the border question seems to be the biggest issue that is keeping the UK in the EU for so long....basically having to deal with the Irish....classic tail wagging dog here
No border in Ireland then and everyone wins, except the DUP”
just to make sure ....this doesn’t allow EU goods to come into Ireland, cross the border into the North, and then go into the rest of the UK....which sort of “sounds like” the UK is still in the EU?
It means that eu goods go into the republic and with no tariff or customs into northern Ireland.
But if they are to go to the rUK it faces tariffs and customs checks. And vice versa.
So northern Ireland is part of the eu in the same way that the Vatican is part of the eu, I.e legally no and not following the eu law or ecj, but part of the customs union
