Impossible Swampy, couldn't be done, even during the troubles the army could only man so many.


Sid, it's actually a weird one, neither hates each other and always have the craic when you go down or ironically I'd have to go North to see Laz who lives in the South.

It's just the North internally that hate each other.

The Souths back in time in large parts, Sublins cosmopolitan but rest of country not as much, it's a weird one, it's not backwards or anything negative, they just don't really give a fuck or stress.
Well I suppose that's the knighthood fucked.

Border patrols Maybe having to bring back the army....would be a nightmare to police- and more attacks on security forces.

Just seen you said "hard border".... There never has been but was always road blocks on the main roads and a few crossing points manned by army. All regularly attacked

Forgive me for intruding ,but I can never see a 'proper' border between the two .Who would benefit from that ? Like someone has stated from afar it looks a very complicated situation .

I get what you are saying but, am nevertheless, confused and somewhat worried. The last thing we want to see is a return to the troubles of the past.
Also, if the brexit campaign was about pulling up the drawbridge on little England, how does that work if you have a porous border in NI between the UK and the Republic? Surely any gypo who wants to get into the UK will still be able to do so by going via NI?

Worried?

Lol, don't worry Swampy, fuck sake it's gallows humour time here at the minute,

Wouldn't be worrying, yes there is the issue with immigration but what's the difference on getting to the South, and crossing a yard in the road to getting on a plane or boat and getting to England and fucking off into the night?

Once out of the eu isn't the point to make laws to make it better to go to other EU countries anyway if you've just arrived?

Wouldn't be worrying Swampy, yes it's inconvenient to have your shopping interrupted by a bomb scare but there's Tescos a good bit away from City Centres,

Seriously though, the only way the troubles will properly go 2.0 and go civil war is if the North cecedes.

Won't happen. Moderate nationalists don't want it, all Unionists don't want it, aye wanted to stay in eu and uk but if its one or the other?

Pfft, UK. Otherwise economy collapses, South needs more money from eu which has already had UKs money withdrawn.

Looks like this Brexit buisness has created more trouble than it cured ?

Nah fuck Junker and Merkel, the coalition caused the problems no doubt then Merkel opened the door, better off out of it, and I'm still perplexed as to why us Albania and Germany pay the agreed amount into NATO and don't kick off, we are mugs, and the foreign budget to countries with nuclear missle programs while never reaching the peoplevin need is another geg.

The IRA, right, where they quite left wing? I watched an interview on BBC with a former member and his vision for Ireland wasn't one of irish nationalism but socialism. What was the reality?
