I'm Northern Irish myself and wouldn't get too hung up on it one way or another and tbh most people down South where I live now and on mainland Britain couldn't care less about what goes on up North. It's very complicated hassle neither wants to get involved in. That flag in Belfast nonsense showed the general apathy in both sides towards the North's affairs.

Yeah, not too many people do get riled about it these days thankfully, just a minority of wankers (on both sides). And having the choice of passports can be useful.



When I visited Belfast few months back, my boyfriend banned me from talking about politics on the street just in case some people would get iffy about it. And I have to agree that mainland British, especially English people don't care too much about Northern Irish being British or not. They're just "Irish" to most English people. Which used to piss my boyfriend off alot and he said living to England has made him feel more Irish than British, and the only British pride he has left is from his long term brainwashing by his family.

so totally no point the UK being in the EU if were paying in more than were getting out were just paying out to save other countries asses for there mess ups and getting us in the s**ts.

its a crime what there doing but all you can do is remove the sings there putting up , then the police get hit with the racism thing . its like RAGE . we do need them rules like china and Poland . rules rules and no mater what religion you are your foreigner in a country your not born in you should stick to the rules set by government . its like if we go in Muslim country we soon no about it if we brake one there laws .
the UK governments just a walk over and some people need to do something. people say all these things but nothing never happens very annoying.


i live in little village town and i only ever see chines people and English people . don't see any Muslims or other foreign groups so am kinda in same boat thank god .

don't think i could live in a big city or town .


Oh yeah I forgot you're from the little posh town Shrewsbury. Lol sorry I really had to get that out. Same feeling here about people getting away with crap because they're religious! There was an 18 year old guy raping a 13 year old girl few months back, but the judge let him off because "he had a different upbringing than normal British boys, and he wasn't aware that raping a child is illegal". IT'S LIKE WTFFF is wrong with the judge!!!!!! And the jury!

But back to the point, I think we should have the same chance as Scotland to vote out of the EU.

I believe we view the UK as a whole, but understand each part has it's own history, and perspective. I generally believe people from the UK are polite, mature, have good character, and make for good company.

Boring? Lol, try heading to Newcastle in North England. Spend a Friday/Saturday night in the city and I guarantee you won't be bored. You'll probably be very drunk, shocked, confused... but not bored

Oh, and to all those who think that the UK may have a problem with alcoholism... Don't head to newcastle in North England on a Friday/Saturday night... Some stereotypes may be a little justified...

As long as a King or Queen sits on the throne I shall always care for Britannia and that's not just because I'm a Geer.

I don't really have any preconceived notions of the UK, although I like your television.
