Most of us in the south know that NI is a bit of our country that England stole a hundred years ago
But some fools imagine that NI is an actual country distinct from Ireland
The most recent idiotis British PM recently said that the 'UK' consists of 4 nations - so NI is a nation?
Do Orange marches and ignorant (and unemployed) H&W workers in Belfast constitute a country?
Many of us in the south have friends and family in Britain but we dont pretend we are British
So how can the 6 counties be described as a 'country' ?

Britain considers Ireland as a "Home" Nation.....always has.

Don't want to quibble but the theft took place hundreds of years earlier. No it is not a country although some British Irish/Irish British consider it 'our own wee country' but, in reality, it is all in their heads. Some of the resident West Brits and mé féiners down south would love to pretend that it is another country.

Any human with a brain and understanding of history would know that England never stole any part of Ireland .

They were invited in. And with the popes blessing were given authority to rule. There are many islands on this earth that are divided into two countries. Haiti and Dominican republic and Cyprus for example. Ireland now is a country divided by its own people , Catholics and Protestants, Maybe with the rise of Islam things may change.

A lot of the Orangemen brandish Israeli flags.
You prefer that than if they waved the Tricolour.
I know
Israel are shamed by those ignorant Dolly Parton fans carrying their flag

The Normans overstayed their invite and the Papal Bull from an English pope did not confer legitimacy. The division was caused by Plantation the effects of which we are still living with today. So get real, Lady.
