Apparently Eoin's okay because his mother is English.

He's a class act, Newrybhoy.
And according to Newrybhoy, Leo isn't Irish because his father is Indian.

Only English mothers count in his book.

Well we can't all be the economic dynamo that is the six counties.

When's the last time you paid for yourselves?

Was it back in the 1930's or was it earlier?

Or was it ever?
The comparison is between 2 states - Ireland and The UK. There are poor areas in both.

NI had its own government for much of this period, it was a 'statelet' if not quite a state.

We're comparing the two parts of Ireland and NI doesn't compare well, at all.

Bit of a failure really, all things considered. Pretty much lowest in the UK for any metric you wish to consider.

No such thing as a statelet.

Actually, your opponent was comparing Ireland and The UK.

As regards NI being a failure, you could say it was subjected to 'unusual' pressures within living memory. In any case it doesn't matter - The UK's not about to ditch Wales or North-East England, never mind impoverished areas of London (plenty of them). According to some, Chelsea and Knightsbridge should declare independence.

The rest of the UK would dump you guys in the morning if they could.

Don't kid yourself.

What the rest of us are enjoying is watching the DUP's time in the spotlights. The English are looking in in horror so it's all good.

The false statelet, also known as the sick counties is the poorest region of all with their disposable income trailing far behind most other Countries in Europe.

It just shows the contempt they gave for the majority on this island. Image thinking that the Irish Government would give the DUP/OO/UDA/UFF a veto over EU legislation.

But yet, they are still given an easy ride in the Irish media.
Yep, the Irish medai truly is an absolute fuking disgrace .. even seeing the DUP unclothed they STILL pander to them .. there should be more made of this .. its disgusting

I have suggested to you, in the past, to move your mindset from 1690 pal and join the rest of the planet in the 21st Century.:ROFLMAO:
