    Irish Catholics arent native to Ireland they were simply there before the Northern Irish protestants.

    Okay, but someone suggested it. I forget who.

    P.S. The people of Northern Ireland are all British as well.
    No argument with that.

    Ireland was allowed a vote to return to sovereignty, when did this happen?

    I think he meant when did they vote to reunite with Ireland? He misunderstood your previous post probably. Some people just dont understand that they can call a referendum to opt out of the union whenever they like, and that the Northern Irish support the Union as much as the Welsh and Scots.

    As the ratio of Catholics in population continues to increase, that may potentially change over time. But just recently Garza posted info that shows that Catholics in Northern Ireland are becoming more amenable to remaining a part of the UK. It's amazing what being treated as equals will do.

    That would have been an accurate assessment in the 17th century yes.

    So time heals all wounds, and erases all wrongs, is this your assumption?

    And you are wrong, in the early 1920's, there was a war, and the mighty empire won, once again.
