Always fun reading MOD reports on how they messed up in NI and lost to the IRA. Couple of interesting instructions to their incoming cannon fodder to be found within the Operation Banner report.

Points 109 b and g.

109 b - it is not strictly correct to describe Northern Ireland as 'Ulster' or 'The Province.'

109 g - '...it is therefore not quite correct to refer to Northern Ireland as British

Keeping the gloves on was a mistake that perpetuated the criminality. Had they treated it as a war, it would have been over in a fortnight.

NI is geographically not British.

NI is politically British.

Hope that clears it up for you.

Just give it a few generations and there won't be enough people up there who think they are British. That's the time for a safe reunification. Last thing the country needs is any sort of unionists involvement when the numbers game is up. All those Brits up North can go back home to Scotland when that happens.

Sure the Irish can take a walk down the road and be home for tea. If NI was so bad, why did they not go south enmasse decades ago?

According to the BBC only 48% of NI residents identify as British in any way, including those with dual identities. With this in mind, it's likely that Ulster is only 1/3rd British.

The truth is, they did, in significant numbers. Kids having nordie parents was common place when I was in school in Dublin. Mind you a minority of them were even protestants. The majority didn't leave because instead of talking about no-surrender, they spent their efforts on actually not surrendering.

Because it's part of Ireland. The unionists prods are the unwanted infestation on this beautiful land.

The majority didn't leave because they were happpy to stay. Free house, education and healthcare money and DLA cars.

They had the same as anyone else had.

Despite the recent myths to the contrary, people deflating themselves to be NI only, aren't fans of Irish unity.

Discrimination against catholics in housing and employment was rampant, intimidation by police was also routine. The majority were unafraid though. The Republic had a similar welfare state at the time, and now has a far superior one. What is a DLA car?

There were more Catholics in social housing than Prods a fact seemingly forgotten. No one was intimidated by Police who did not involve themselves in confrontations with them, the vast majority. Employment discrimination happened on both sides throughout NI depending on who was the majority.

If you were in receipt of DLA you were entitled to a car. Amazingly the biggest areas in receipt of these were west Belfast, Derry and Strabane.

With the ROI's immigration policy, what kind of Ireland remains after unification ?

You say that but we are all aware that it is not true, and the wider world outside of NI is also aware. We have history books, witness accounts, videos and photos, you cant rewrite this one.

If you've ever been to NI you'll know who identifies as Northern Irish and let me assure you, none of them vote SF.
They don't identify as British either apparently. So much for 'Ulster is British', you've retreated to 'Ulster doesn't vote SF, somewhat'.

I see Arlene has been given a ladder to climb down this morning, unionist climb downs are likely to be a common feature in the coming years. The days of Ulster saying no are becoming the days of Ulster saying no then retreating from that position.

Is it because of the lastest bombs found in England ? British intelligence finds Northern Ireland terror groups behind it but they know these bombs are put there by two Northern African guys working for CIA.
