    Can someone pop over to the NI forum, and tell them that this thread exists on the main board?

    It's over 3 hours old and not nearly looballs enough.

    Then we, all of us, will know that a UI is a dead duck for at least a few decades.

    Personally, I wouldn't hold a border poll until a few years into Brexit and full on UK Austerity.

    There was an interesting article by John Fitzgerald in today's Irish Times pointing out that one of the side effects of Brexit will be an increase in English nationalism and self-interest - when people in the North of England realise that they're just as poor as NI but not getting nearly as much money that things will start to get interesting.

    Displaying such ignorance of the GFA, I know, is all too common on this forum from our usual suspects.......but, at least it does damage to their credibility and contributors are armed with the knowledge to take their views with a pinch of salt and/or hilarity...as I do.

    Was there a poll on what way they would vote?

    Irish translations gather dust after costing council €30,000
    Wed, Feb 22, 2006, 00:00
    Gordon Deegan
    Clare County Council has spent €30,250 on translating three statutory development plans into Irish - and has not sold a single copy, writes Gordon Deegan

    Irish translations gather dust after costing council

    Irish language act would be a big waste of money if the above was allowed to happen.

    What a waste.
