    This doesn't really do much other than allow the commonwealth to do something I doubt any of them want to do and would be able to do regardless.

    Ummmmmm Great Britain is the name of the island of Great Britain which contains most of England, Scotland and Wales :/.
    Also this makes no provision for representation in the House of Commons so no.

    TSR UKIP, the party who wants to return to the era of the troubles, by causing further divide in NI and creating resentment to the rest of the union among nationalists both in NI, in RoI and in England, just to try and return to some kind of 'golden era' where Britain was a superpower, and didn't **** up by trying to extend it's now phantom limbs.

    I fail to see how going from "Northern Ireland is in the UK" to "Northern Ireland is in the UK" kicks anything off. Does saying "Crimea is being annexed by Russia still" suddenly mean Ukraine explodes again? The other irony is that Britain is regarded in many respects as the second most powerful country in the world.

    It's the complete and utter dismissal of those in NI who want to see a unification with the Republic of Ireland, and this kind of behaviour will only make existing relations worse, both between the pro-united Ireland population in JI and the UK but also between the RoI and the UK.

    There is also no real demand for unficiation: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United...rthern_Ireland

    Even the Catholics would rather the status quo be maintained. Unionists have always had a majority of seats. Every year the majority want to remain part of the UK, and almost as many people want direct rule as want reunification. The nationalists are like Yorkshire First but more violent.

    Nay. Great Britain is already defined as the island and I don't really see a need to change that.
