Total BS. Neither I nor any of my Irish friends have had any problems in London. Irish friends in both Glasgow and Liverpool have been fine. Can't speak about Bolton.Anti Irish sentiment could rise. Especially in Liverpool ,Bolton and Glasgow. People are taking notice of what Snarlene Foster is saying and support for her in certain sections of UK is very high. A lot of Irish are just keeping their heads down .
The fact is that as immigrants go, Irish in the UK now have it pretty good in that the prejudice of the past is largely absent. The idea that the Irish Government legitimately seeking to defend its interests should be avoided in case some scumbag bigots decide to take it out on Irish people is ridiculous. Please stop using me and those I know as some sort of weird excuse to say that the Irish Government should stop insisting on a backstop.
