British people have to understand - the south of Ireland , and its politicians will never be a friendly neighbour
Not in the past , and not in the future.

A damp squib yesterday, hardly made the news,with the Queen unwell surely another senior royal could have attended?
More likely distancing themselves from the loyalist politicans and who can blame them.

suitable senior royals getting a bit thin on the ground these days, Lapsy Mischief

quite a timely illness for her majesty...

I think pre Brexit lfc the British/Irish relationship was very good and only continuing to head in one direction a very positive one,
many younger people especially don't (or didn't) have the same inevitable baggage of previous generations.

I don't think the relationship is bad Brentford,Ireland are rightly looking to keep the GFA agreement with the UK going,that is a red line so to speak.

I am pleased the centenary was a shambles,it was started out as a show of triumphalism,Micheal D knew it.

Enough young have the baggage but if the protocol is implemented properly the North of Ireland is in a position to capitalise massively economically especially if todays think tank findings of being used as a 'hub' are used asap.

no deprivation in the UK and nobody is poor, says lfc1971. Tell that to the familes of the poor bastards who starved to death because they had their benefits stopped and were too ill to leave their homes. Tell that to the people queing up at foodbanks because the govt have stopped their benefits for no reason whatsoever. You stupid ignoarmus k unt.
