Must be a bit of room for some loyal Ulstermen in the streets of Bradford, Burnley and Oldham surely.

The sashes look as if they're made from the fringes of old fashioned sofas/couches (the bit around the bottom)-

Adams' wing of Sinn Fein were never very sympathetic to Scottish Independence in the main. That's more the O'Bradaigh faction, now Republican Sinn Fein.

Maybe being stupid but this seems one point that London seemed fairly sensible on. :hide:
The status of Northern Ireland is a matter for the occupants of Northern Ireland.
Historically that has meant they have stayed in the Union.
In the future the demographic changes mean they are more likely to join the Republic.

However that is their business not mine and not someone in Dublin either.

I also suspect that Dev was probably the best recruiter the Unionists had.
Carson et al were probably more motivated by their own religious freedom than by any tie to the UK.
The problem was that they ended up doing the same as Dev in the south but the other way round.
However religion in both countries seems on the wane(for good and bad) and the South is probably not so scary for a
Protestant any more.

I only hope Scotland gets independence before any change in Ulster because all the Red Hand Loyalists will gravitate to
Glasgow if Ulster joins the ROI.

Yes, he was too interested in "Ireland" being a Catholic state...

Heard it said recently, and I agree with this, that the Fine Gael/Fianna Fail cabal secretly don't want Northern Ireland reunited with them, because it will bring in a bunch of heavy weight politicians who will rain on their parade. This is certainly true, Ulster politicians may well have misguided ideas, but the likes of Ian Paisley would have most TDs and the Irish government for breakfast if he was in the chamber. It would wreck the cosy little arrangement.
