Northern Ireland has no right to decide where they want to stay, they need to get their a$$es back to the republic and the brits can get the h3ll out of the north. Long live the IRA

Nice. It was remembrance day today, and there was an interview with a guy whose legs had been blown off by an IRA IED in the '80s while he was patrolling a housing estate.

In any case, the terrorists have now decomissioned their weapons in Northern Ireland and your thinking is nearly 15 years out of date: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Good_Friday_Agreement

Are the 6 counties back with the Republic? Not so feck off you ejit.

What do you mean, "BACK with the Republic?" The six counties have never EVER been part of the Republic. You are seriously misinformed.

"Ahh... But the thing is, these guys were no ORDINARY time travellers!"

They were formed in a compromise due to the response of the Unionists at the time, but the original concept was to have the entire island as a semi-independent state. It was planned to reunite sometime in the future in further talks.

Even as Ireland became completely independent, there was still a huge desire for reunification. At the time this would have been valid since both sides were very similar. Over the years this has changed however, as cultures changed. If anything N. Ireland's culture is more akin to Scotland, and other aspects such as accent, slang etc. have changed dramatically to ours that it's obviously distinguishable. A person from N.Ireland, even if he/she is catholic, are not really treated as "Irish" here anymore due to these differences.
