Seems everybody over there talks a good game about "rights" until the big bad govt. shows.
You can't even follow through on the vote of the people.

As a frequent traveller to Northern Ireland I can say that from experience that statement is rubbish.
Also, there are frequently riots in Northern Ireland, stirred up by turf wars and criminality. In this case with an investigative journalist being murdered by dissident republicans, it was probably because she got too close to something.
On Irish unification... Well, consistent polls in Northern Ireland indicate that on both sides of the sectarian divide there is a wish to remain in the UK. Besides, the cost to the Republic of reunification would be crippling, so not sure they want it except as a political goal. With the EU’s centralisation the Republic of Ireland is gradually losing its nation state, so it's all a bit pointless anyway.

Full moon mate and a very powerful one caused the madness. Just yesterday driving around cars driving very aggressively, smack heads in their wheelchairs racing around looking panicked for stuff, the misses rowing with the mother in law over her phones not working at home, misses says that mother in law is (bad at the best of times but yesterday) on full flow, then got back and shut the fridge door a bit too hard for her and doors and got a slap from here. Flippin mental and was glad to get to bed, everyone was losing it and guess it was the same in Ulster too
