    I prefer to consider myself eastern Irish, though I could equally well be northern Irish. One thing I am definitely NOT is British.
    Sure you are! Irelands part of the British Isles after all even if your part of it is "an Gaidhealtachd Saor"!

    I'd like to see the whole of Ireland being Gaeltacht Shaor. I'm geographically from the British Isles, as are the majority of us here, but I'm an Irish citizen and have no wish to be termed British in any political/cultural sense of the word...

    I only hate the liberal brits and the zionist ones also. The avg brit is ok, whether you like it or not you are almost exactly like your american brothers and sisters. Too bad your little island is going to be ruined by non-whites flooding into it, we will miss you. (except the liberal zionists, good riddance)

    The percentage of the british population that isn't white is actually quite low. You say that you hate liberal British people. Well that includes a large percentage of British people. Add to that the number of British people who are zionist supporter and you are ruleing out a large proportion of the British population, saying that for some reason they don't deserve to be here. Well I don't have a problem with the racial make up of Britain as it is and I don't think that Britain is going anywhere. Britain is bound to be similar in many ways to America because both speak the same language and spring from the same initial culture I don't see why that is particually surprising.

    Oh for crying out loud. No one *hates* the British or they wouldn't have spent more than 5 seconds on a website titled UK Learning... and they certainly wouldn't have signed up! I hate paedophiles, the BNP etc. I certainly wouldn't willingly spent time (be in time online, or or time in real life) in a group of people where the huge majority were a group I 'hated'.

    Grow up, shut up.

    Do state the obvious

    Actually if you're born in Northern Ireland I thought under the Good Friday Agreement citizens have a choice of nationality - Irish or British. But was told you can be have citizenship for both, just not nationality? :confused:

    Its not really a choice of being 'Irish' or 'British', its a choice between the UK and the Republic - being pedantic i know, but by Irish i (and most i think) refer to anyone from the Island of Ireland, regardless of political orientation so you have Irish British just as you have Scottish Brits, English Brits and Welsh Brits.

    But that is using a geographical aspect (the lump of mass called Ireland) with poltical lines (a nationality). My nationality is European really I know what you're saying.
