    Default Flegger's Dictionary: A Guide to the NI forum

    I think its fair to say that there are many terms and phrases that are unique to the Northern Ireland section of P.ie and which tend to confuse many newbies. So I think a thread dedicated to defining these terms, with an NI touch to it of course:

    So lets start with the basics:

    Fleg - The National Flag of the United Kingdom

    Flegger - A person who is convinced that "themmuns" are out to destroy Unionism, and who are primarily concerned with keeping the "fleg" flying over Belfast City Hall all year round.

    Themmuns - "Them ones": the opposing side in the NI debate. Fellow members of one's own side are known as "ussuns".

    PUL - Orangies/Unionists/Loyalists/"Pradastants"/British Nationalists

    CNR - "Kafflicks"/Fenians/Nats/Rebs/Irish Nationalists/Republicans

    Mickeymac - An erudite Floridian who has an account on every major NI discussion forum and who is primarily found on your ignore list.

    Whataboutery - It was themmuns whodunit!

    Please add as many words with their respective NI definitions as you can!
