Wrong again.Nationality and citizenship. Northern Ireland is part of the UK. However, under the Belfast Agreement(external link opens in a new window / tab), also known as the Good Friday Agreement, people born in Northern Ireland can choose to be British citizens, Irish citizens or both.About Northern Ireland | nidirect
You are quite confused. NI people can be British citizens but the geographic entity called Ireland or any part of it, is not nor ever was part of Britain.

Britain is an island you blockhead





There there you'll get it eventually:eaea:

I have just quoted the Good Friday agreement, do you know anything?
I didn't know that tbh, fair play. But that makes my question even more pertinent- I'm not sure they'd appreciate facts getting in the way of their agenda.

Instead of jumping to conclusions to make you boyfriends happy re-read what I said.

I said, people from NI can be called British id they want to be.

Yes I must admit I didnt know it until a few years back when I was speaking to someone from NI. They called themselves British and I said how could you be. They then explained to me the GFA part that states it.

Very Selective, why didn't you put in the full quote?

Who are you to tell people what they are?

If he/she wants to be British then thats their right, especially when the North is part of Britain.
As for the North being part of Britain, I mean in a political sense. Anyone can see geographically its not the same country.

The options we would normally give in a poll question about this issue, would be British, Irish, or Other.
However recently 'Northern Irish' has become a more popular definition as to how people consider their nationality. Not only that, but some people like to call themselves 'British and Northern Irish', and 'Irish and Northern Irish', though these terms are stretching it a bit.

However, we thought we would include all these options for our nationality poll question in our recent BIG60 online poll: 'What Nationality are you, or what national group do you consider yourself belonging to'? You may have seen in previous reviews of our NI-Wide BIG60 (i.e. 60 Hours) online poll that we received a whopping 2,642 responses, and after data auditing we considered 2,517 in terms of the final results and analysis.
So what nationality do NI people consider themselves to be - here are the results from the total poll, balanced and weighted to be reflective of Northern Ireland as a whole:

Because that's the part I asked you about. But you wouldn't concede it was a misquote. We've finally gotten there after lots of gnashing of teeth.

Do you enjoy wasting people's time Asif?

Ireland is one,Ulster is Irish.Plantation and partition are divide and rule.People that want to be British should live in England,Scotland or Wales.The people of Ireland have never been asked about what they want.It has been the will of foreign forces that has prevailed.
