    Who agrees that Ireland should become part of the kingdon again?

    Who also agree that we should have forced them to do it and withholded bailout money (obv the EU prevent us from doing this in reality so hypotheticallY)?

    Is it likely that Irlenad coming back would be good for Btitain economically and politically?

        1) The Irish hate us for numerous and obvious historical reasons
        2) They're broke. Do you fancy picking up the tab? They would be a deadweight on our economy which is already sailing on choppy waters.

        Don't really see any good reasons why not, but these sort of things are decided on anything but logic. Realistically, it's unlikely because the Irish are quite wedded to the repugnant ideology of nationalism.

        Unlike Ireland, those places were never part of Britain proper. They're socially quite different to the UK.

          A union should be of countries that actually want to be there by popular demand. The Irish hate us so I would go as far as to say just give NI back and let them join the rest of Ireland if the people will it.

            Trust me, one needn't be a nationalist to be a Tory... nor, indeed, to be an amateur vexillologist.

            I may be mistake, but you sound like the kind of Englishman that Irish people, north and south, protestant and catholic loathe. The kind that meddle in our affairs basically.
            I don't make a habit of butting in to reply to discussions between other people, but I felt it worth mentioning that you may be approaching something that I (and, I suspect, quite a lot of mainland British people) loathe: an Ulster/NI/Protestant (basically 'our community') small-n nationalist in the DUP vein. "Our affairs"? I remind you that, as part of this country, Northern Ireland is our affair - just like England, or indeed my native Scotland.

            This is an excellent post; the only reason Ireland exists right now is because people have some irrational leaning towards nationalism. Ireland would be better off part of the Union, and the Union would be better off having Ireland as a part of it. I'm sure most British view the Irish as one and the same as them, and would welcome Ireland's reinstatement into the Union.

            Or maybe I'm just speaking for myself here.

            nationalism isnt repugnant. lets say for examples sake the usa took over the uk. would we like to become yank country. I dont think so. surely the UK cannot own every ****ing country. it would be greedy. :teehee:
